Huawei Mate 8,
which should be launched as Huawei Mate S, previously known as Mate 7S, leaks
yet again. We are following the path of this fella for quite a while but it
will be all over in few day at the IFA event in Berlin.
to the latest reports the Huawei Mate S is indeed the company's next flagship
and should be introducing a Force Touch display. We got some
glimpses of the device throughout the
past few weeks, but today we have something better - live pictures of the
device sized up next to an iPhone 6.
new Mate S looks a lot like its Mate 7 predecessor - it's big, made out of
metal and has the signature fingerprint scanner below its main camera. The
sensors and the selfie camera placement doesn't match the recently leaked
photos and retail postings,
but they do look the same as on the TENAA's images we saw earlier.
There is a chance we are seeing two
different devices - Mate S, Mate 7S, Mate 8 - or just market-variations of one
and the same phone - the Mate S.
The Mate S is rumored to pack a
6" Quad HD Force Touch display and run on either the most powerful and
still upcoming Kirin 950 chip or the already available Kirin 935 SoC. The
handset is also reported to pack a 20.7MP main camera and an 8MP selfie
shooter, 3 or 4 GB RAM, a fingerprint sensor, LTE Cat.6 connectivity, a massive
4,500 mAh battery, and a brand new Emotion 4.0 UI on top of Android Lollipop.
The official announcement should
happen on September 2 in Berlin.
