Huawei Mate S2 looks like a modded Nexus 6P

TENAA have just shown off a phone that looks a lot like the Huawei Nexus 6P, only on closer inspection there are a few physical differences.

Last year Huawei became the first Chinese manufacturer to launch a Nexus device, the 6P, and with only a few months to go before the end of the year it looks like a 6P lookalike has just been seen at TENAA.

Many first seeing these TENAA images might just think that this is a Huawei Nexus 6P for the Chinese market, but on closer inspection we see that the power button location has changed and the new phone doesn’t have dual front facing speakers.

Gizchina News of the week

Chinese media are suggesting that this device could be the successor to the Huawei Mate S which we saw at IFA last year. This new Huawei Mate S2 has an all metal body, curved rear and fingerprint scanner, with the front boasting a 5.5-inch FHD display.

TENAA also list the S2 with a Kirin 960 chipset, 4GB RAM, 16 megapixel rear camera, 8 mega-pixel front camera and 3500mAh battery.

Huawei haven’t made any official word about the Huawei Mate S2, but as TENAA have already had their hands on it we guess a launch won’t be too long away.

    Funny that nobody noticed the full leaks on Kirin 960 so far.
    2.6GHz likely means A73 and the timing makes it clear that it’s on 16ff.
    To make some folks happy, the GFXBench scores pretty much doubles over Kirin 950.
    Granted, for many , nothing will be enough unless they go with a ridiculously overheating GPU that seems good on paper and ends up performing worse in games.

      The major changes over the 950 will be on the network side.

        How exactly is A73 and a 2x GPU less than major? Not to mention that faster LTE is of minor relevance to users since the vast majority can not take advantage of it.
