No new Mate series phone at September 1 event, Huawei executive says

We already know that Huawei is holding an event on September 1 where the company will announce new smartphones. While we were expecting a successor to last year’s Mate 8, a company executive has now revealed that no new Mate series smartphone will be unveiled at the event.

The executive confirmed that the Chinese company will instead make official a phone from an entirely new mid-range series, although he didn’t provide anymore details about the device or the new series.

If you recall, recently, there have been rumors that Huawei could possibly launch a smartphone geared towards women at IFA next month. An image leak (shown below) of the device – dubbed Nova – revealed a very large volume rocker.

As for Mate series, he said that the company will unveil new phones in around a couple of months.
