Huawei Mate 8 announced Hands On #CES2016
Were live at CES 2016 in Las Vegas with Huawei and boy did Huawei put on a show. Follow us on @techviewme for quick updates.
We are looking at the Mate 8 flagship model from Huawei. This is an Android Marshmallow phone with a heavy EMUI Huawei skin that looks a lot like iOS.
This is a 6 inch phone with almost no bezels at the side. The curved and thin appearing design is a lot like the Mate S that we saw earlier.
It runs Huawei’s own Kirin 950 that’s actually the first chip to be based on new ARM specs and Mali GPU. This thing is blazing fast with almost top place in Android benchmarks.
The Huawei Mate 8 has a 16 MP camera. Its a Sony lens with way better image stabilization than any other phones. The photos actually look gorgeous on the device. It has a pretty good front facing camera as well with a face beautifier.
There were a lot of cheers at the press conference when we came to know that the phone gets over 2 days of battery life. Huawei poked fun at all the other phones needing an external battery and the best bit is that the Mate 8 can get you a full days of battery with just 30 minutes of charge.
On the side you have the conventional buttons and a newly and Level 3 finger print scanner. We tried this and it works really well.
The phone will cost about AED 2400 for the 3 GB 32 Gigabyte and AED 2800 for the 4 GB RAM with 64 GB storage.
There is also a new premium looking color called Mocha Brown that wins hearts here at Huawei.
So that was our first look. Let us know what you think.
