Huawei's new Mate flagship is due for some time. While most were expecting the company to come up with the all new Mate 8, it apparently seems that the next Mate device won't be called so. It will be called the Huawei Mate 7S - seems like they kept the Mate 8 reserved for next year.

Nevertheless the to-be launched Huawei device also passed TENAA certification in China a few days back. Tipped to launch during the IFA Berlin (4th-9th September) will the Huawei Mate 7S pack a punch to rival the all new Samsung Galaxy Note5? Apparently leaks and rumours suggest so. Here's a look into the Top 10 features to expect from the Mate 7S.
Full Metal Body
Just like previous Mate devices from Huawei, the Mate 7S is also tipped to sport an all metal bosy, In fact the TENAA certification images clearly show the metal build.
Huawei 7S is expected to come with a slim profile. May be something around 6.5mm? If so it will definitely beat the Samsung Galaxy Note5 which measures at 7.6mm.
6 inch QHD display
So far the leaked TENAA certification images hint a large 6 inch display. Hopefully Huawei has planned to bundle in a Quad HD display. Just in case the leaks come out to be true, the Huawei 7S will sure be a winner in its segment.
Improved Kirin SoC
The Mate 7S is tipped to feature the much awaited Kirin 935 SoC which is an octa core chip developed by Huawei itself. The company has been working hard on their range of SoCs and it's expected that the new Kirin 935 is built as power horse. If so, then Exynos 7420 in the Note5 will face some fierce competition.
USB Type C Port
This is one new revelation of the tech industry that went missing in the newly launched Note5. But being a Chinese company, Huawei will definitely bring in the USB Type C port in their latest flagship - after all the USB Type C port was first unveiled in the Chinese handset LeTV Le1 Pro. Even the OnePlus 2 features this new generation USB port
13MP camera with PDAF
Leaks so far hint at a 13MP f1.8 rear camera with IMX278 sensor from Sony. The IMX278 is the latest 13MP sensor offering from the Japanese optics maker - expect improved low light images and a better depth of field. Huawei might even include a PDAF sensor into the device for better focusing time. One thing is for sure though - the Mate 7S won't features a Laser Focus.
8MP Selfie camera
While the Note5 packs in a 5MP camera, Huawei Mate 7S is said to feature a larger 8MP unit. If so, then Mate 7S will sure be an obvious choice for all those selfie lovers
The Chinese OEM might bundle in an Infra-Red blaster at the top of the device in order to add the remote functionability to the device. This feature goes missing in the Galaxy Note5 though.
The Mate series from Huawei were always known for its huge batteries. The Mate 7 featured a whooping 4100mAh battery. So it is highly unlikely that the Mate 7S will be any different. This will give the device a clear advantage over the Note5 which features a notably smaller 3000mAh battery.
Isn't this the USP of all those Chinese OEMs out there? Yes it is, and Huawei is no different. Expect the company to price the device competitively - probably under Rs 45,000. The Indian pricing of the Note5 isn't known as of yet, but don't expect it to be priced below the Rs 55,000 mark.
