Huawei Mate 8

#Huawei has been pretty busy today at the #CES2016 with the announcement of the Watch Elegant and Jewel, while the company has also released the GX8 smartphone for the American markets.

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.
