Way before the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a (real) thing, Huawei rushed to be the first mobile device manufacturer with a launch event slated on the eve of IFA 2016’s start. In the meantime, of course, the highly anticipated Note 7 saw daylight thousands of miles away from Berlin, leaving the Mate 9 or Mate S2 in a pretty good position to capture the German trade show spotlight next week.

That’s September 1, beginning at 10:30am CEST, in case you were wondering, which equates to 1:30am PDT, or 4:30 EDT. Clearly, Huawei has something in store aimed primarily at European and Asian audiences, despite the company’s great recent strides in the US smartphone landscape.

How might our expectations be defied come next Thursday? Well, we probably shouldn’t rule out the arrival of a second-gen Huawei Watch, perhaps touting advanced autonomous capabilities and standalone cellular support.

There also may be a Nova phone focused entirely on the ladies in the pipeline, though details remain slim, with Asian media speculating about a mysterious new sub-brand catering to budget-conscious consumers to wrap it all up. Wait, so another Honor cannibalizing the existing mid-range family’s sales? Doesn’t sound like Huawei’s brightest idea, but let’s see how it shapes up.
