Huawei is holding a pre-IFA event in Berlin on September 1, which is this Thursday. While at one point we assumed we’d see the Mate 9 unveiled on that occasion, recent news purported to come from a Huawei exec said that wouldn’t be the case. Instead, the company will allegedly out a phone in an entirely new mid-range series.
In the rumors this line has been referred to as Nova, although the final name could be different of course. Past mumblings also spoke about it being aimed at women somehow.
Huawei teasers for IFA event
Anyway, on Weibo today Richard Yu, Huawei Device CEO, decided to tease not one, but two handsets that are due to get fully revealed on September 1. The two teaser images are above for your viewing pleasure (just click on the thumbnails for the full-size shots).
There’s not a lot to tell about these phones just from their outlines, but they do both seem to have metal frames at least, while the one with the round camera looks like it has a glass back. The other model might too, but it could also employ a full-metal construction. We’ll probably have to wait until Thursday to find out for sure.
