However, the highlight from the company’s address was the announcement of the Mate 8 flagship. This device was originally shown off in November, but the company decided to give us a refresher of its hardware while also sharing availability and pricing details.
The Huawei Mate 8 sports a massive 6 inch 1080p display (no Quad HD), a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, an 8-megapixel front camera, a 2.3 GHz octa core Huawei Kirin 950 chipset, 3 or 4GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of internal storage, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a 4,000 mAh battery which should offer 2-days of battery life comfortably.
The manufacturer managed to give out European release dates but was quiet on the American release. The Mate 8 will be launched in a 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant for €599 while the model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage will be sold for €699.
