Huawei has launched a new premium midranger and revealed prices for the Mate 8. CES 2016 is on and we are following.
The Huawei GX8 is similar to the recently announced G8, just for different markets. The GX8 is not a specs monster. It tries to attract with its premium metal design and the same ultra fast rear mounted fingerprint scanner familiar from the other Huawei smartphones.
The display is 5.5″ 1080p IPS LCD with 401PPI. The Snapdragon 615 SoC is assisted by 2 or 3GB of RAM depending on the size of the storage, either 16 or 32GB. The cameras are 13 and 5 megapixels and the 3000mAh battery should last through the day easily. The GX8 will be available soon for price of about $350.
The recently announced Mate 8 gets its price revealed as Huawei has told at CES that the flagship phablet will be available in Europe for 599€ for the 3/32GB version and 699€ for the 4/64GB model. No word on the US pricing or availability yet. The Mate 8 has a 6″ 1080p display, Kirin 950 SoC and a 4000mAh battery.
