Huawei Mate 8 teaser hints at November 26th unveiling

Speculation has the Huawei Mate 8 powered by the Kirin 950 SoC, and it would have been a perfect time for Huawei to kill two birds with one stone by showing off the new handset right after introducing the chip. But a new teaser discovered in China indicates that this won't happen.
The just discovered teaser for the Mate 8 shows the number eight with a date of November 26th. That appears to be the date of a separate event at which the phone will be announced, and dovetails with a report last month that called for a late November, early December release of the phone. In addition, the number eight on the teaser is covered in the same type of circuitry used on the invitation for the Kirin 950 introduction. This pretty much confirms the use of the Kirin 950 SoC for the Mate 8.
Another leak consists of two photographs allegedly snapped by a Foxconn employee (where the Huawei Mate 8 is being assembled). One shows the metal frame of the handset. The other shows the SIM card tray that supposedly supports dual SIM cards and a microSD card.
Bottom line, we now expect the Kirin 950 to see the light of day on November 5th, with the Huawei Mate 8 to be unveiled three weeks later.
Thanks for the tip!

I've never seen you admire anything besides an apple product. So that does make sense.

they dont do their best in battery. recharge time takes too long still.. even with "lightning charger" the tiny battery takes OVER 2 hours to charge..Apple(which is the name of the company) needs to fix their battery. Even WP flagship come with quick charge now but Super Premium iPhone 6s/6s+ is pathetic...
