Powerful Huawei Mate 8 to be launched on December 9th?
For Huawei, the hits keep on coming. Late last month, the Huawei Mate 8 was unveiled. Huawei smartphone chief He Gang has confirmed that the phone will be launched on December 9th, this coming Wednesday. The executive adds that one million units will be produced per month, revealing that the manufacturer has a high level of confidence in the handset. The unit's predecessor, the Huawei Ascend Mate 7, rang up sales of 7 million units in one year. The company seems to feel that this figure will be topped with the Mate 8.
Thanks to a powerful Kirin 950 chipset under the hood, the Huawei Mate 8 recently posted an incredible 94,250 on AnTuTu. The device carries a 6-inch LCD display, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Two variations of the phone will be available. The model featuring 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage will be priced at the equivalent of $470 USD. The exclusive champagne edition, with 4GB RAM and 64GB of native memory, will be offered for the equivalent of $1075 USD.
The Huawei Mate 8 has a 16MP rear camera that includes a Sony IMX298 sensor, an aperture of f/2.0 and OIS. The front-facing selfie shooter is an 8MP camera with a Sony IMX179 sensor, and an aperture of f/2.4. A 4000mAh battery keeps the lights on.
If you have the Huawei Mate 8 in your crosshairs, be sure to circle your calendar for December 9th which is when we could see the phone released for sale.
Thanks for the tip!
