Huawei had hinted last month about a new phone launch at IFA with a press invite. It was expected that the Chinese smartphone maker will unveil the Ascend Mate 3, however, as per the latest invites the company will most likely unveil the Ascend Mate 7.
The Ascend Mate 7 launch which is scheduled on Sept. 4th, will boast of a finger print scanner.
