Although Huawei has introduced a new device not long ago, Mate S, the brand doesn’t stop and there is already a new smartphone in development. This will be the true successor of the Ascend Mate 7, the Mate 8.
Earlier reports revealed that the Mate 8 will be officially announced on November 26 . At this time, only two days until yhe announcement, there are new images of the smartphone in China.
In addition to its metal body, we can see that the Mate 8 will be available in three colors: gray, gold and copper.
The renders confirm the positioning of the fingerprint sensor underneath the camera, as well as that metal ring around the snapper, and the two speaker grilles surrounding the USB port on the bottom of the phone, as well as the speakers around the USB port in the bottom. In what concerns to the display, this should be a 6 inches one with 1080p of resolution. It seems to have a 2.5D glass and it’s almost bezelless.
The smartphone has been rumored to feature Huawei’s new Kirin 950 chipset, which has a CPU that employs four high-performance Cortex-A72 cores and four low-power Cortex-A53 ones. The Mate 8 could also have a 6-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 16 or 20 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, an 8 MP selfie shooter, 3 or 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of storage (depending on version). The battery capacity might be 4,100 mAh, and the phone will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s own Emotion UI on top.
