According to the famous Chinese company, the new Huawei Mate 8 is truly a premium phablet and this high-end device will represent the second new gadget, besides Google’s most recent Nexus pair of mobile phones, to be delivered with the latest version of Android, Marshmallow 6.0.
The producer took the veils off its Mate 8 in China earlier this week, where the massive 6” screen device will be offered prior to a worldwide release that is planned for the beginning of 2016. The company wants to reveal its flagship phone for these marketplaces at one of the official major events that will take place next year.
The aluminum-finished gadget is operating on Huawei’s lately presented Kirin 950 platform on a processor with the series of A72 2.2GHz and A53 1.9GHz nuclei. It also has the new Mali T880 graphic card on the company’s proprietary i5 chip, which enhances the voice recognition, lower energy intake, routing and other power saving options.
One amazing task, probably incorporated thanks to Huawei’s involvement in the creation of the 6P, is represented by the fact that its Mate 8 phablet will be only the second smart phone to be offered with Google newest operating system, the Marshmallow 6.0 on which was based Huawei EMUI mobile skin for its future devices.
Since it is a leading gadget, Huawei has provided to the heir of 2015 Mate 7 a pricey overall appearance and feel, offering a metallic whole frame and a nice 80% ratio of display to body. This is approximately 10% more than the Chinese producer’s 5.5” Mate S launched in Sept and that wants to be a direct competitor for the iPhone or Galaxy smart phones.
In a similar manner to Google’s Nexus UP made by Huawei, its Mate 8 arrives with the fingerprint reader placed strategically on the rear of the gadget. However, that location could raise some problems for a number of users since the primary digicam is right above the fingerprint sensor, in contrast to Nexus 6P’s side placed camera onto the dark bar.
In this regard, Huawei’s Mate 8 surpasses Google’s Nexus 6P thanks to the 16MP primary sensor and the 8MP front facing camera, while the full HD resolution has an image quality of 368 ppi. The device also has built in the solid 4,100mAh non-detachable battery power and unlike the 6P’s Type C connector, Huawei decided to use a regular Type 2.0 port.
It is not very clear which versions will be sold worldwide and conflicting news tells us various details about this vital aspect of any phone, especially premium ones. Anyway, Huawei is already offering its Mate 8 device at the Chinese dealers in three models: 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space and 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. The base prices are set at around $450 and the product is available with silver, gold, greyish and brown cases.
Previously known just as a big telecommunications and media seller, in an extremely short time Huawei has conquered the third position in the top of the largest smart phone producers. The Chinese giant is going to sell more than 100 million mobile phones only in 2015 as it carries on to force its powerful competitors in the premium segment of the mobile gadgets market and its latest Huawei Mate 8 will only contribute to this immense success.
