The recent launch of Huawei-built Nexus 6P has brought the Chinese tech giant into global prominence. Now, the company is apparently working on a beastly device dubbed “Huawei Mate 8.”
Speaking of Huawei Mate 8 release date, Phone Arena citing a reliable Chinese report said the device will hit the store shelves either by late November or early December. The upcoming smartphone will reportedly come powered by the company’s own Kirin 950 chipset and 3 or 4 GB of RAM. This chip will apparently work in tandem with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores, running at 2.0 GHz and additional four Cortex-A72 cores, running at 2.4 GHz.
On the other hand, the Kirin 950-powered Huawei Mate 8 apparently visited the Geekbench benchmark site and it ended up scoring more than Samsung’s powerful Exynos 7420 chip. This Exynos chip has been housed in a slew of Samsung devices like the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge+ and the phablet Galaxy Note 5.
Moving on to other Huawei Mate 8 specifications, the device will reportedly flaunt a massive 6.0-inch display and 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution. This handset is believed to come equipped with 32 GB or 64 GB of native storage capacity. A 21-megapixel rear-facing camera unit will be complemented by a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies.
Furthermore, the Huawei Mate 8 price has been listed as 3,299 yuan, which is about $518 for the 3 GB RAM variant, while the 4 GB model will set the buyers back by 3,899 yuan ($613). Even though, there is no confirmation available as to when the company will be releasing the handset outside China, Phone Arena said that the device could be made available via e-retailers eventually.
