Huawei has sent out invitations to an event on 1st September, but we now know that it will not be used to unveil the Huawei Mate 9. Bruce Lee, a product manager at Huawei, has refuted internet rumours, saying that the successor to the Huawei Mate 8 will not be launched for some time yet.
The Huawei Mate 9 will not appear until around 12 months after the debut of the Huawei Mate 8 – in line with the company’s usual launch cycle. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the new phablet will be seen before December 2016.
Instead, Huawei may instead use the September event to show off the successor to the Huawei Mate S.
