Chinese manufacturers have been offering two variants of many new handsets, with consumers able to select from a pair of RAM/ROM combos. That is the case with the G8. One version offers 2GB of RAM with 16GB of native storage. The second option provides 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Those who need additional storage will be able to do so thanks to the 64GB capacity microSD slot.
On the back of the phone is a 13MP camera with a 5MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed with Huawei Emotion UI running on top. The phone supports 4G connectivity and will be available in White, Gold and Black. For security reasons, a fingerprint scanner is on board.
Huawei has released pricing information for the G8. The 2GB RAM model will cost you $370 USD while the variant with 3GB of RAM is tagged at $434 USD.
Thanks for the tip!

U.S. availability? I mean, its like the best phones never release in the U.S. It seems we stuck between a war of who can rock a iPhone or Galaxy S/Note. Look on Twitter and you'll see iPhone 7 trending: "when you bought a iPhone 6 last month and the iPhone 7 releasing in September", " iPhone 7 said to cost 900$, airplane mode better take me on vacation ", " But the iPhone 6 just released last year." All this so common knowledge you should know.. Pathetic, you don't even look into what you buying [big percentage of smartphone users], you get it because your friends got it(iPhone), or because its similar to the iphone(Galaxy S6), or because it's cheap or don't wanna leave your brand you've had for years.

1080p is the perfect screen resolution for smartphones in my opinion (of course with a higher ppi pixel density, between 400ppi and 500ppi). It is perfect for: 1- The looking (~5" screen Smartphones don't need a higher screen resolution to look amazing). 2- battery saving. I think OEMs makes higher screen resolution (than 1080p) just for marketing matters, that's all.

This is a downgrade over the last year G7 in all aspects but screen resolution. The battery is down to 3000mAh from 3500mAh. Although Snapdragon 615 is better on paper then 610 in fact is a worse performer. I suppose it's using a lot the lower quad part which is running at lower clock speeds then the quad in 610.
