Huawei Mate S2 may have just hit TENAA

There is a bit of debate going on right now as to what Huawei device you might be looking at in these photos. Early on, a device was spied in a GFXbench listing that was thought to be the Huawei Mate 9. Later a rumor suggested that the device seen in the benchmark was actually the Huawei S2. Fast forward to today and some images of a new Huawei device have landed on TENAA.

We are still unclear exactly what the device is, but the presumption is that you are looking at images of the Huawei Mate S2 as it gets the certifications needed to hit the market. The images show an attractive device that could be a twin to the Nexus 6P that Huawei makes. It has the exact same design and might even be the same device set to launch in China without the Nexus moniker attached.

The rear of the Mate S2 shows the black curved side section at the top of the back hiding the camera lens and flash. The round fingerprint scanner is in the upper center section of the body. It even has the thin white line in the lower section of the back that the Nexus 6P has. TENAA didn't offer up any detail in the specifications of the smartphone along with the images.

That means we don't know if the superficial resemblance goes under the skin at all. However, if we look at the specs that the GFXbench results suggested we can get an idea of what might be under the hood of this device. Those specs show Android 7.0 and a big 5.9-inch 1080p display. The chip under the hood of the smartphone is a Kirin 960 octa-core unit running at 2.6 GHz paired with a Mali T880 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Internal storage was 64GB and the smartphone has a 12MP rear camera and 8MP front.
