Huawei is working on a new Mate device, which will be the successor to last year’s Ascend Mate7. Some leaked images of the Mate 8 have now emerged out of China which pretty much confirm what the device will look like. It’s not much of a surprise that the images reveal a similar design to the Mate7 with differences mainly in the rounded fingerprint sensor and camera at the back.
Rumours suggest that Huawei will hold an event for the Mate 8 on the 26th of November. The images reveal a metal body and three colour variants: grey, gold, and copper. The renders also show that the fingerprint sensor will be just below the camera, and two speaker grilles on either sides of the USB port on the bottom of the phone.
From what we know so far, the Mate 8 will sport a 6-inch 1080p touchscreen display and will be powered by Huawei’s new Kirin 950 chipset and an ARM Mali-T880 GPU. Furthermore, the handset will be available in 3GB and 4GB of RAM with 32GB and 64GB of storage, respectively. The Mate 8 will run on 4,100 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow, though nothing has been confirmed just yet.
