Huawei over the last day or two has begun sending out press invites to an event scheduled for November 3rd in Munich, Germany. While we don’t know for sure what the Chinese company has planned for that date, we would place all our bets on the Huawei Mate 9 — which might actually come to the US…

Just a couple of days ago the forthcoming flagship phone leaked almost in its entirety, revealing its dual-cameras, 6GB RAM, 256GB storage, and sub-$500 price. As you can see in the image above, it appears to be a dual-camera evolution of last year’s model maintaining many of the same design cues.

But what’s perhaps the most exciting thing about this launch is that the Mate 9 is said to be the first Huawei phone that will launch with Huawei’s revamped EMUI, version 5.0. Supposedly, this version of the phones software will finally ditch the iOS-like multitasking and notification screens. In general, the skinned Android is supposed to much more like Android, and much less terrible.

And that has us excited, because Huawei makes some pretty great hardware. It seems we’ll learn more on November 3rd, as “Chief Executive Officer Richard Yu, along with other Huawei executives, share Huawei’s latest innovations and exciting advances.”
