For those of you waiting for the first leaks of the Huawei Mate 8 after this morning launch teaser then you didn’t need to wait too long.
Huawei teased that an event will take place on the 26th November, the date is likely when we will see the Huawei Mate 8, the first Huawei device to ship with the powerful new Kirin 950 chipset, launched.
As we posted earlier, specifications of this phone include a 20 mega-pixel rear camera, force touch display, etc and we also speculated that a rear fingerprint scanner (similar to the Mate 7) would be part of the package too. Our hunch has been confirmed (at least in leaked photo format) with the above image.
Sources in China claim the image shows the rear of the Huawei Mate 8 with the rear shell of the phone removed. As you can see there is no place to slot a SIM or SD card in the rear and the battery is hidden below plastic cladding suggesting that an all alloy unibody will be the final design of the Mate 8.
We can also see a dual LED flash and rear camera sensor design which features a thick border and has a smaller fingerprint sensor located directly beneath. It also seems to show a lack of laser auto-focus on the phone a feature other flagships have been shipping with lately.
This leak is likely just the tip of the ice-burg and more teasers and details are sure to be released ahead of launch. Keep posted for more news.
