Official-looking Huawei Mate 8 renders leak out

Official-looking Huawei Mate 8 renders leak out
With just two days left before Huawei's official Mate 8 event takes place, it was high time we got our hands on a conclusive enough piece of evidence confirming the absolute flood of related leaks. More specifically, a set of relatively high resolution, legit-looking press renders detailing the design of the device have been scattered across China's Weibo social network.

The images themselves offer nothing in the way of surprise. This is the same phone we've been watching being leaked out left and right for weeks now. If we're to make some educated guesses, the Huawei Mate 8, like the Mate 7 before it, will be keeping the fully metal body of its predecessor and only propose marginal updates to the exterior — like a rounded, instead of square, cutout for the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and camera lens. Interestingly enough, that's in contrast to the still minty-fresh Huawei Mate S, which adheres to the old design language.

In case you've missed out on the torrent of leaks so far, the Huawei Mate 8 is expected to pack a gigantic, 6-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, powered by the company's latest silicon — the Kirin 950 — and 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on the model. According to a recent AnTuTu pass, this configuration is a mean crunching machine, managing a chart-topping score of over 79,000 points. Let's just hope that the ARM Mali-T880 GPU proves as powerful as initial benchmarks suggest, as graphics performance has been a persistent issue with Huawei-made processors.

Sorry but we would probably see those "faux-slim-bezels" again on this one, just like the Mate 7, P8 and many before it. Their renders all claim that they have slim bezels, but reality is it's just a proportion of the glass made black to frame the actual screen.

Wait a minute, so all of a sudden, this LG V-10/Lumia 950 camera lens design is the new "it" thing?

Pretty dam sexy. But that's a big ass phone. My OPO at 5.5 is perfect in my hands. 6 is a bit too much

Looks a fusion between LG V10 and Microsoft 950.

I thought Xiaomi had the best looking phones out of these companies. Looks like I was wrong with this Mate 8 rendering.

Huawei phones look better in reality than in renders and that's odd. Huawei has beautifully design phones. Probably top 1.

Just like Sony's and Lenovo. They design phones to look beautiful nd slick, while others cater for ergonomics.

Not bad would have been more awesome if it had front facing speakers like the Nexus 6p

Looks fake, but beautiful. Cue the 'that's what HE said jokes'...
