huawei mate 8 launch

After long delays Huawei are finally on track to launch the Huawei Mate 8 at a launch event in China on November 26.

Huawei have had an amazing year, with some of the most anticipated phone launches and growth which has seen the brand overtake Xiaomi in their home market. Some of the more notable Huawei phones this year have been the Huawei Mate S and the Huawei Nexus, but has the best been saved till last?

The Huawei Mate 8 is a phone that has been whispered about fairly frequently. The device should already really be on sale, but the company wanted to use their latest Kirin 950 chipset in the flagship so pushed the launch back. The Kirin 950 is tipped to be one of the most powerful processors on the market running at 2.4Ghz with Mali-T880 GPU, and will go head to head with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.

        Exactly the reason I’ve been eyeing up these 2 phones in particular although the Vivo would be my first choice, can’t imagine either of them being very affordable though 🙁

          it’s going to be expensive, but it’s a Vivo, you know it will worth the money
