Thanks to a
teaser that surfaced last night, we
now expect to see the Huawei Mate 8 unveiled on November 26th. In addition, the image confirmed that the phablet
will be powered by the Kirin 950, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chipset that will introduced by
the company this coming Thursday. Now, we have
an idea of what the phone's specs will be thanks to a trip made through the
GFXBench benchmark site.
As expected, the Huawei
Mate 8 will feature a 6-inch screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920
resolution. The home-grown Kirin 950 chipset will be under the hood, providing
an octa-core 2.2 CPU (comprised of Cortex-A72 cores), and the Mali-T880 GPU.
4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of expandable native storage. A 16MP
camera graces the back of the phone, with an 8MP snapper found on front to
shoot selfies and handle video chats.
We expect to see a large capacity battery power
the Mate 8, especially since a 4100mAh juicer was found inside the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC are both supported by the new
phone, which will come with Android 6.0 out of the box. Pricing and availability
should be revealed on November 26th, once the Mate 8 is made official.
