Huawei’s next flagship phone, the Mate 8, is expected make its official debut at an event this summer. An invitation leaked by Chinese blog Mobile-Dad suggests the company will unveil the device on Sept. 2 in Berlin.

The Mate 8 is expected to pack a 6-inch Quad HD display, a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The company may also offer a high-end version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Both models will likely feature a fingerprint reader and a massive battery as well.

Huawei’s new phone probably won’t be available in America, at least not initially, but it could still be a big deal for U.S. smartphone fans. Rumor has it the Chinese company is teaming up with Google for an upcoming Nexus handset. That means something similar to the Mate 8 may end up in our hands later this year running Android M software.

Based on these rumored specs, the Mate 8 could be a real beast, though we wouldn’t take this rumor as fact just yet. Mobile-Dad previously predicted that the Huawei phone would launch in June, which clearly didn’t pan out, so we’ll try not to get too excited until the company actually starts sending out invitations.
