Huawei Mate 8

Ok so as I work in the mobile phone industry it seems fitting to start my blog talking about a company that has been making strides recently as part of the budget smartphone movement; Huawei. A Chinese company that makes affordable smartphones but still with great technology and value for money.


They are now in the business of making flagship models and the mobile phone world is getting quite excited about the release of their latest handset, the Huawei Mate 8.


From the leaks that I have seen online recently it looks like a very smart phone indeed (excuse the pun). It will have a metallic finish and come in a range of three colors. They will be gold, grey and what looks like a copper type color. Very striking to look at and mightily classy.


As with most newly released smartphones these days it will come with fingerprint scanning. The technology is getting very good now compared to what was being released in the early days. The speakers will be located at the bottom of the phone as well, either side of the phones USB port.


Inside the phone it appears that the phone will employ the very latest Huawei chipset and will include eight cores. Four that are high performance and four that have a lower performance. It is looking likely that the phone will have a 6” screen that will of course be 1080p. The camera specifications could see up to a 20-megapixel lens on the back of the phone and a whopping 8-megapixel front camera to take those all-important selfies.


The latest Android software will be on the phone, 6.0 Marshmallow and it looks like one hell of a phone is about to be released!
