In the smartphone world of electronics we are familiar with ongoing and upcoming facts, in particular the intricate plans of the major players in the game, will obviously be aware that Huawei plans to unveil its next flagship smartphone at a dedicated event in Munich, Germany on November 3. What appears to be more catching is its smartphone design and architecture believed to pose as similar as now infamous Galaxy Note 7. Here are the details to pin point.
The device, which is expected to be the new Huawei Mate 9, is likely to be an extremely popular Android flagship when made official, but we can’t help but feel that the overall design, as well as the curved-screen option – images of which have just been leaked – has taken a little inspiration from Samsung‘s hardware, the burning star Galaxy Note 7.
The edge version of the Huawei Mate 9 is apparently to be extremely popular with consumers, but very difficult to not instantly think of Samsung’s curved-Edge devices from both S and Note series when you consider the visuals of what Huawei is alleged to bring to the market.
While the non-curved display variant Mate 9 is being referred to internally as Manhattan, with the curved option having codenamed Long Island, with the latter being the power powerful of the two high-end prospects. We haven’t came in front of full specifications, but Long Island is said to boast a QHD resolution as part of its ambitions of supporting Android’s Daydream VR platform. On the other hand, Huawei’s Manhattan is rumored to offer an FHD (1080p) resolution, and promoted as being the less premium model of the two won’t actually offer support for the Daydream VR capabilities of Android.
Suggestions predict that the leaked Manhattan device could be slightly inaccurate, with the final product set to look slightly different to what is originally being shown off in the renders. Still time to wait until November 3rd for the imminent Huawei event to actually see what gets introduced.
Also interesting to actually get an official glimpse at this unannounced hardware, both the Long Island and the Manhattan, the former of which will likely be restricted to a release in Huawei’s homeland, China, withthe Manhattan furnishing the worldwide market. If the devices do get released as per these leaks, then it’s possible Huawei could have an extremely legal decision with Samsung on its hands thanks to the not-so-subtle design inspiration that’s been carry forward.
