Huawei was the hustler of the smartphone industry in 2015. It had four poles holding up a tent that spread across the world, not just its home country. And if the company’s pomp and circumstance didn’t put the Mate S up in the product ranks of the P8, the Nexus 6P and the Mate 8, surely a sequel will.

We’re hearing from a supply chain source via Weibo analyst Sun Changxu that Huawei will take on a phone with a double-curved screen in the second half of the year — but it will not be like Samsung’s implementation in its edge variants of the latest Galaxy S phones.

Given Huawei’s monster uprising to number three in the smartphone OEM food chain by shipments, Sun said that the company definitely has the clout to drive suppliers into making the parts it wants. She also dropped the hint that this device will be the second of its lineage. That squares things down to this phone being the sequel to the Huawei Mate S.

Of course, in context, the Huawei Mate S2 may be different, but the same: the curved screen trend has gone from Samsung to the Vivo Xplay 5 with rumors mulling over a future curved iPhone.
