An image of an unknown Huawei smartphone has appeared just a month before IFA 2015 and is even expected to make an official appearance at the event this year.

While there is currently no technical information or model number, the screenshot shows a very large display and a rear fingerprint scanner. The extremely thin bezel suggests a nearly edge-to-edge screen that may even be phablet sized. Contrary to previous assumptions, the smartphone is likely not part of the Huawei D-series and will likely not have a Force Tough Display. A video claims this to be a prototype for the Honor 7, but of course this is unconfirmed information.

Similar to many other high-end smartphones, the unknown Huawei device appears to have a metal chassis as well. We should know more about this mysterious model in the coming weeks at the IFA event in Berlin. The Chinese manufacturer is also set to announce a new smartphone sometime this week.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
