Huawei introduced us to its latest flagship device, mate 8. The device is infamous for it 6 inch 1080p screen. Huawei claims that its mate 8 is better than the note 5 from Samsung and they weren’t joking around. It matched the note 5 spec to spec and even surpasses the Samsung phablet is some aspects.
The mate 8 comes with 4 GB of ram (yes, you have seen that number in the note 5 and the galaxy s6 edge+) and a colossal 4000mah battery. One thing that can prove decisive in this smartphone war is that mate 8 has the ability to expand its internal storage capacity as Huawei equipped the phone with an expandable slot.
Huawei has received praise for its design on the nexus 6p and this handset is not any less attractive. the processor running the show is the Kirin 950 coupled with a Mali T880 gpu. Finally, the mystery processor makes an appearance in a smartphone. There is a secondary co-processor for low computational powered tasks and that will help the overall battery life.
Huawei is identified with low cost and mid ranged handset. Seldom does anyone recognize Huawei as a premium android manufacturer. But the mate 8 is a beauty to look at. And with premium features and hardware, it might not sell in similar volumes as the android heavyweights such as the HTC one m9 or the note 5, but it will definitely make Huawei a little popular in the android circuit.
Huawei has been slowly improving its smartphones as well as its position in the smartphone world. it currently stands as the third largest player in terms of smartphone shipment dominated by Samsung in the first position and apple in the second position.
Ultimately, Huawei is aiming for the top position that is currently occupied by Samsung and it remains to be seen how Samsung will take things from here.
