In the near future it is expected the release the next generation smartphone Huawei Mate 8. Here you will find all the details about its launch, specifications and price.

Huawei always brings surprises. The first was the Ascend P6, known as the Android-iPhone. The new smartphone Huawei Mate 8 has a large battery and relatively small price.

Huawei Mate 8: Design

OnLeaks published render video of the new Huawei Mate 8, in which the device can be seen from almost all angles.

In the back we see some changes with a slightly more circular appearance. The camera is protected by a round metal frame and fingerprint reader is also circular, as seen in the Nexus 6P. The body is apparently unibody and aluminum.

Huawei Mate 8: Performance

On Weibo was published AnTuTu benchmark of new Huawei Mate 8 with its processor Kirin 950 (four cores Cortex-A53 and four cores A72 Cortex). The smartphone scored record of this benchmark with 79,131 points. We should note that it is more than 10,000 above the current numbers of Galaxy S6.

Huawei Mate 8: Specifications

For internal memory and RAM memory probably you can choose between two versions. The cheapest will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. The high range will be equipped with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. Chances are that Huawei Mate 8 also has a slot for SIM card nano and micro SD card to expand the memory up to 128GB.

Huawei Mate 8 has the same camera as its predecessor Mate 7 – 16-megapixel main camera (along with dual LED flash two tones) and the 8-megapixel camera on the front.

The Ascend Mate 7 had a magnificent 4100 mAh battery. It is unlikely that the new Huawei Mate 8 does not have this feature that has become so famous to this line. Therefore we cannot expect the new Mate has a smaller battery than 4100 mAh.

It is expected that Huawei Mate 8 will have screen size of 6 inches and a resolution of Full HD. As has become the trend of the new devices provided by Huawei, the new Huawei Mate 8 also features a fingerprint reader on the back.
