Huawei G8 unveiled with 5.5-inch 1080p screen, SD-615 and a fingerprint scanner
This morning, the Huawei G8 has been unveiled. Just a couple of days ago, we told you that the phone had received its TENAA certification, and as expected, the handset is equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution screen. That produces a pixel density of 401ppi. A 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU.

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!
