Huawei Mate 8 launch expected at IFA 2015 with great specs and Kirin 950!


Today we have really exciting news about the Huawei Mate 8, successor of the Mate series. According to new sources the new phablet is being developed and may be announced during IFA 2015.

Looking at the leaked renders we can already state there are few differences between the Mate 7 and the upcoming 8. The body aspects looks to be untouched as the full alloy construction, the main differences are present in the rear with the dual-LED flash apparently been moved from the upper left side of the camera to below, sitting between it and the Fingerprint rear sensor. Another difference is there is no logo anymore in the front just the Huawei’s logo in the back.

Our sources claim that the Huawei Mate 8 will make its debut Setember 2nd. The device may carry a 6-inch 2K Panel in the front with one of the expected specs being the highly anticipated Kirin 950 octa-core SoC, which consists of a cluster of four Cortex A53 and another one of four Cortex A72 clocked up to 2.4GHz.

There are speculations that the Mate 8 would come in two variants; a standard variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and a more ‘advanced’ variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Other specs include a dual channel LPDDR4 RAM, the ARM Mali T880 GPU, dual ISP with support for up to 42MP cameras and dual SIM support with Cat.10 LTE connectivity.

With those specs the Huawei Mate 8 does sound as a pure flagship material… if the date is accurate, we can already say the launch isn’t too far away!

    That design would be a big step back from the Mate 7 so i assume it’s not real with the dimensions actually increasing.

    Wow, the Kirin 950 will blow everything wide open if it arrives before October.
    This should score huge in benchmark tests, and completely destroy the P8 launched just a month ago.

    It’s photoshopped pic of Honor 7 . Some sources confirmed it.
    I am not sure of Kirin 950 . It won’t be coming before IFA .

      Agreed. Mate 7 was released on October 2014. The P8 and Honor 7 released later than last year, and hence Mate 8 should release by November. But that said, the Samsung Note 5 being released on September, could mean Huawei will time the release early to take on Note 5.

    The question is, will this be able to beat the holy-grail 70,000 mark on AnTuTu? If it does, I will buy it and post a photo here.
