Perhaps the most-desired Huawei phone as of now is the Nexus 6P, which was launched a couple of weeks back. Being the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, Huawei’s portfolio is filled with various smartphones spread across various needs. And one of the latest rumors around Huawei are revolving around the Huawei Mate 8, which has earlier leaked out in pictures and videos quite a few times.
A fresh report from China says that the Mate 8 is now being mass produced at Foxconn and the phone will be released in late November or by early December. If previous rumors are anything to go by, then the Huawei Mate 8 will be powered by Huawei‘s own high-end Kirin 950 chipset which includes an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.4GHz. It is highly possible that the Kirin 950 might be actually better than the Exynos 7420 chip used in Samsung’s high-end devices like the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Accompanying the Kirin 950 can be a top-of-the-line ARM Mali-T880 GPU, apart from a motion co-processor, a Tensilica Hi-Fi 4 DSP chip, and a Cat. 10 LTE radio.
The Huawei Mate 8 is said to get a 6-inch Quad-HD display, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, 8MP front snapper, and a 21MP rear camera. The 3GB RAM version of the device might be priced at CNY 3,299, which is around $520, while the 4GB RAM version might retail for CNY 3,899, equivalent to $610. Though there’s no news about this phone being available in other regions than China, we expect it to be available on sale through e-tailers like Amazon or Everbuying.
