Huawei Mate 8 is the newest device that Chinese company Huawei has introduced on their most important market. Interestingly, Huawei Mate 8 is called “the most advanced flagship” of the company, is equipped with the new Kirin 950processor. As I mentioned a while ago, Kirin 950 is one of the first models that use 16-nanometer manufacturing process FinFET Plus transistors from those at TSMC. We are dealing with an octa-core processor, with four Cortex A-72 cores and four Cortex A-53 cores, along with a Mali-T880 graphics engine.

The phone is made of aluminum and 2.5D glass and the screen, as in the case of the Mate 7 supports a Full HD resolution (1080 x 1920 pixels and a 368 ppi pixel density). The list of features includes a Sony IMX298 sensor of 16 megapixels on the back and an 8 megapixel camera on the front. A fingerprint sensor on the back of the device, placed below the main camera. Fast charging, gaining up to 37% battery capacity in 30 minutes.
