If the 5.7-inch Huawei Nexus 6P leaves you wanting for even more screen real estate, then you might be interested in Huawei's upcoming Mate 8. In the past months, we've heard a few rumors centered on the device, and we've also seen some alleged leaked photos. Earlier today, a report from China claimed that the Huawei Mate 8 has entered mass production over at Foxconn, with the commercial release said to follow in either late November or early December.
According to previous rumors and leaks, the Huawei Mate 8 will make use of the company's in-house Kirin 950 chip, a high-end effort that's believed to integrate four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.4GHz.
Other rumored specs for the Huawei Mate 8 include a 6-inch display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels (QHD), either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of integrated storage space, an 21MP primary camera, and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front.
Allegedly, the Huawei Mate 8 will be priced at 3,299 ($520) for the version with 3GB of RAM, and at CNY 3,899 ($610) for the version with 4GB of RAM.
