Huawei Mate 8 specs surface on GFXBench

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. Earlier today, a picture allegedly showing the back of the Mate 8 (sans cover) appeared, revealing the round camera, round fingerprint sensor, and the lozenge shaped dual LED flash. 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.

Thanks for the tip!
