Huawei is gearing up for a pretty big IFA this year — according to notorious leaker Evan Blass, aka Evleaks, the company will launch three new devices at the event, specifically the Nova and Nova Plus smartphones, and a MediaPad M3 tablet.

Not much is really known about any of these devices, however it is expected that the Nova and Nova Plus may look something like the Huawei-built Nexus 6P. The ‘Plus’ version of the Nova smartphone will likely be very similar to the standard Nova with improved specs and perhaps a larger display.

Purported images of the Nova were also published on Chinese social media site Weibo by analyst Xiang Ligang. While the post has now been deleted, a screenshot was captured by 9to5 Google.


When it comes to the tablet, the MediaPad M3, the device is a successor to last year’s MediaPad M2, and specs for the device were leaked last week through a listing from the FCC. The device, according to the leak, will include an 8-inch LCD capacitive display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. It will also come with a Kirin 950 processor and 4GB of RAM, suggesting that it’s a pretty high-tech device. It will come with 32GB of onboard storage, which can then be expanded up to 128GB through the included microSD card slot. As far as the camera goes, there is a rear-facing camera with a 13MP sensor, as well as an 8MP front-facing camera.

Pricing and availability for the three devices has yet to be released, but with IFA 2016 right around the corner we probably won’t have to wait too long. The devices are said to come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, however, hopefully they’ll update to the newly released Android 7.0 in the near future.
