The IFA 2015 event that will be held at the beginning of September in Berlin is steadily drawing near. On Sept. 2, Huawei is poised to unveil the Huawei Mate 8 flagship. Rumors have it that the design and specs of the forthcoming Huawei Nexus 2015 will be based on the Huawei Mate 8.

The Huawei Mate 8 will be a phablet device as it expected to feature a huge display of 6 inches. It will be supporting Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels.

Phone Arena claims that the Chinese manufacturer will stick with full HD resolution displays for its future smartphones. Hence, it has released the Huawei P8max with a massive display of 6.8 inches with support for full HD resolution.

But since Google is pegged to release the Huawei-built Nexus 2015 smartphone with Quad HD resolution, the Chinese manufacturer had to go with Quad HD resolution on the Mate 8.

The Huawei Mate 8 should be powered by the home-baked HiSilicon Kirin 950 chipset, although this is not yet officially announced. According to Android Authority, the chipset will feature an octa-core processor. It features quad cores of Cortex A72 and quad cores of Cortex A53. The processor can produce a maximum processing speed of 2.4 GHz. The chipset also includes ARM Mali-T80 graphics.

The Huawei Mate 8 will be released in two internal storage variants with different capacities of RAM. The 32 GB model will be housing 3 GB of RAM and the 64 GB variant will come with 4 GB.

The handset will come with dual-SIM capabilities and will also feature a fingerprint scanner. The exact version of the Android OS that it will be shipped is not known yet.

It will be featuring a 20.7 MP rear camera and the selfie camera on the device will be of 8 MP. The older Huawei Ascend Mate 7 came with a massive 4,100 mAh capacity battery. Hence, the Huawei Mate 8 is expected to come packed with an even larger one.
