Huawei’s September 1 Event Isn’t for The Mate S2 or Mate 9

We reported last week that China’s current top selling manufacturer, Huawei, has a launch event scheduled for September 1. While most people are expecting the launch of the Huawei Mate 9 and or the Mate S2, one of the company’s executives has said in an interview that the phone will not be from the Mate series but a new series entirely aimed at the mid-range market.

While he didn’t reveal any other details about the new device (that will spoil the surprise), he did mention that in about 2 months, the company will release new phones for the Mate line and a new Emotion UI.

Now that we know the phone launching on Thursday is not a Mate, it means that the earlier rumour of a new series called Nova might just be true. The new series is said to be targeted at the female folk and for the launch, the company has invited Chinese actress,  Guan Xiaotong to speak.
