Huawei has begun sending out invites to a launch event at the IFA trade show in Berlin on 2 September.
From the way the 3D "S" model was made, with variations in force, it's been suggested this is a nod to a Force Touch style control system appearing on the new handset.
Rumours specs suggest the handset should come with a 5.7-inch display that should have a 480ppi resolution. Powering the device should be a Mali octa-core processor. Few other specs have been revealed at this stage.
How this new Huawei handset will fit in with the competition is difficult to judge based on the specs leaked so far.
