Huawei Mate 8 to feature QHD screen, home grown Kirin 930 chip set and fingerprint scanner?
According to a recent Huawei roadmap which we passed along to you, the Huawei Mate 8 is expected to be unveiled next month. The latest word on the successor to the popular Huawei Mate 7 is that the new model will feature a similarly high screen-to-body ratio. The Mate 7 weighed in with a 78% ratio last year.

The 6-inch screen on the Mate 8 will get bumped to a 1440 x 2560 resolution, and Huawei will employ the home grown 64-bit Kirin 930 SoC with an octa-core CPU. The 20.7MP rear snapper will use the Sony IMX220 sensor and there will be a fingerprint scanner on the device. The phone will support 4G LTE Cat.6 (300Mbps).

We have some images in the slideshow that allegedly show off the "bezel-less" look of the handset. This seems to be the big thing among Chinese handset manufacturers these days with borderless displays coming on new phones produced by ZTE, Vivo, Meizu and Oppo.

Huawei CEO said they won't use QHD screens . But recent rumours shows 2K display . I think the rumours are fake . Huawei already using Kirin 935 in P8 (64 GB edition) and P8 MAX . So, they won't use Kirin 930 in Mate 8 .

Yeah these photos are old.. but it is DEFO that they making Mate8 which is brill It DEFO gonna have 935 or even 940 kirin.. And IF they gonna make QHD that will be awesome as they has feature to change resolution from FHD to HD on P7 so on Mate8 will be from QHD to FHD or HD ..

Then apparently you don't know what a Nexus is for. The only FAIL here is you.

that specs looks underpowered for a qhd display, I think they are fake, I hope they use an mhl output and a multiwindow feature, the lack of this two things it's why I haven't bought a mate 7.

Will it have AT&T bands like the Ascend Mate 2? If it doesn't its of virtually no use to the American market. I tried the mate 7 and it barely manages 3g in the USA. Huawei makes great phones, like the Mate 2 I use but why they don't provide lte band 7 on all their products if baffling. Also, reviews of all products should say if they will work in the USA

I'll bet the Moto/Samsung/Apple/HTC/carriers throw enough money at the FCC to keep the USA market from being flooded with less costlier devices, which would drive down their ability to fleece the USA consumers, in the way of higher contract prices & off contract prices for phones.

I'd just be happy if they release a version with LTE frequencies for the USA. The Mate2 works great and there is a fan base here, what's the problem with putting a modem with all the frequencies in the globe?
