Huawei pulls a Samsung with pre-IFA event
The International Funkausstellung Berlin comes our way starting September 2 and it will be a jam-packed week of tech business. But Huawei is kicking it off just a bit earlier.
It has invited press outlets to an event in Berlin at which the company will release at least one new smartphone on September 1.
Given Huawei’s release pattern of last year, we may see the sequel to the Mate S at this event. The fabled follow-up to the Nexus 6P, the 7P could also get an appearance here, especially if Google decides to pull-up its Nexus event before September — a scenario that isn’t looking likely at this point. The manufacturer could also put a rush on the Huawei Mate 9 to chase down Samsung’s presumed launch event for the Galaxy Note 7 — the Mate 8 was released in late November. Again, we would bet against that happening.
Stick with us for the road to Messe Berlin.
