Evan Blass from @evleaks has tweeted out a set of images depicting the upcoming Huawei Mate 9. These show both a flat screen version, as well as a dual curved screen variant of the smartphone. The Mate 9 will possibly be unveiled on November 3, at Munich and considering that the Note 7 is now permanently out of commission due to dangerous manufacturing defects, the Mate 9 could be the phablet that you may want to replace the Note 7 with.


Although the Mate 9 won't sport a stylus like the Samsung Galaxy Note series, it will sport impressive specifications nevertheless. Allegedly, the Mate 9 will be launched with a 5.9-inch display, a HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The premium variant with the dual-edge curved display is codenamed Long Island and will probably come with a QHD panel, ready for Google Daydream VR. The only bad news is that some leakstars are claiming that the Long Island will be available exclusively in China. Let's hope that it's not the case and we get a chance to check out the curved phone in person as well. In any case, the flat screen Mate 9, codenamed Manhattan will be released globally.

Unknown to many, Sharp was the original company who introduced the world's first bezel-less or borderless Android smartphone with the Aquos Crystal. Although the credit has to go to Xiaomi for refining it further with the Mi Mix and giving us the world's most advanced bezel-less smartphone at the time. However, Sharp is not about to go out of the game it seems as the latest leak on Weibo is pointing towards another borderless smartphone from the Japanese company. From what we can see, it may resemble the Essential Phone in the way that it has a hole near the top of the display to allow for the front camera.

 

Rumored to be the FS8010, this one won't be packing flagship specs like the upcoming Mi Mix 2 or any other borderless smartphone. Check it out below (based on what the rumors have provided us with so far).

 

5.5-inch 1080 x 2040 flat, borderless LCD display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC
4GB RAM
64GB internal storage
Single 12-mp camera
8-mp front camera
Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Many of us were disappointed when the Galaxy S8 was launched with just 4GB of RAM instead of the 6GB that the series has been definitely overdue for. As it turns out, Samsung may indeed launch a 6 gigabyte RAM variant of the S8+ in near future. In addition to 6GB RAM, the device will also sport 128GB of internal storage. This is confirmed news as the handset has received TENAA certification already, as you can see in the screenshot.


However, before you get all excited about Samsung finally launching a 6GB/128GB variant of the Galaxy S8, consider the two following points first.


1. It is probably going to be a China-exclusive initially.


2. The price of the device is expected to be KRW 1,155,000/$1,027


Unless you are in China and you are willing to shell that amount of cash out for the extra RAM and storage, you will just have to settle with the regular S8 and S8+ for now with 4GB RAM and 64GB in-built storage. Would this version be making its way to the US and other regions as well? It might, but we will have to wait on that.
