Huawei has launched Mate 8 smartphone at CES 2016 in Las Vegas to the international market. The Huawei Mate 8 is a phablet(Phone and Tablet) with 6 inch display and dual SIM function. Like its predecessor model Huawei Mate 7, Huawei has built a particularly strong battery, the capacity is 4,000 mAh, which should allow an operating time of two days under normal use. In late November 2015, Huawei Mate 8 has already been presented to the Chinese market, the device was available in Europe from the end of January 2016.
Huawei built Mate 8 a display with a diagonal of 6 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). As with the sister model huawei Mate S, the display is protected by a slightly rounded glass (“2.5D glass”). This causes the device itself should feel particularly well and in particular the gesture control is improved. Of course, the curved glass is also visually quite a looker. The internal memory is 32 gigabytes in size, and can be extended up to 128GB, the memory is 3 gigabytes via MicroSD memory card.
The processor comes with the Huawei Mate 8 is a HiSilicon Kirin 950. It is an octa-core processor with 2x 4 cores, which is manufactured in 16nm FinFET technology. Also the modem comes from the subsidiary HiSilicon, which works strangely only with up to 150 MBit/s in LTE network. The predecessor was still LTE Advanced Cat6 with up to 300 MBit/s. Wi-Fi is also supported, in addition to the 2.4 GHz band, whether Huawei also integrates the 5 GHz band is still unclear.
The Huawei Mate 8 will be available in Europe in late January 2016. The price is good without a contract, but the price will probably be a little cheaper at some online retail store such as www.4gltemall.com. The phablet will be in “Space Gray” color as well as in “Moonlight Silver”. People also know the Huawei Mate 8 since last year and it’s said that the Mate 8 is as good as iPhone 6, even better. We had tested the Huawei Mate 8, you can check the test report for Huawei mate 8. But whether it’s better or not, user would have their own opinion. It’s no doubt that the Huawei Mate 8 becomes a shinning star in the 4G LTE Smartphones.
