Huawei has released a new flagship phablet, Mate 8. It features a huge display and impressive specs.
The Huawei Mate 8 has a 6″ 1080 Full HD IPS display packed in an all aluminium body. Huawei’s own Kirin 950 chip is one of the first to have ARM Cortex A72 cores and it has four of them. The less demanding tasks are handled by four A53 cores. RAM size depends on the storage option as the 32GB model has 3GB of RAM and the 64 and 128GB variants get the extra gigabyte. Battery capacity is 4000mAh.
The Mate 8 has the familiar fingerprint scanner on the back with the 16 megapixel main camera. The front facer has 8 megapixels. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow has the Huawei EMUI on top of it. Prices start at $480 for the 3/32GB model. The 64 and 128GB variants are priced at $590 and $700 respectively. The phablet will be available in four colors, gray, silver, gold and brown.
Huawei is really growing in the smartphone market and no wonder why. They make the great metal devices in more affordable price range. Only downside is the EMUI skin on top of Android but that’s why they have the Nexus 6P.
