New Mate 8 Leak Reveals Partial Design Of Huawei's Phablet

Huawei Mate 8 has been mentioned quite frequently lately. This China-based smartphone OEM has announced the Mate S smartphone during IFA in Berlin, but there was no word of their flagship phablet, the Mate 8. Well, the company's CEO has confirmed recently that the device is coming, and not long after that Huawei has released the first official Mate 8 teaser which confirmed that the phablet will arrive on November 26th. We've seen a ton of rumors and leaks when it comes to this phablet, and now we have yet another leaked image to share with you, read on.

If you take a look at the provided image, you'll get to see the alleged Mate 8 phablet, well, the back of it. Now, this leaked image actually goes hand-in-hand with the leak we've shared yesterday, at least judging by the looks and the positioning of the rear-facing camera sensor, fingerprint scanner and the LED flash. The image also reveals that the Mate 8 will pack in bottom-facing speakers. The Huawei Mate 8 will almost certainly going to be powered by the recently announced HiSilicon Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, along with a Mali-T880 GPU for graphics. You can also expect the device to sport a 6-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, at least according to GFXBench listing which surfaced a while back. The Mate 8 is expected to arrive in both 3 and 4GB RAM variants, and 64GB of internal storage has also been mentioned, though you can expect several different internal storage variants to be available. The 16 or 21-megapixel camera will be located on the back of this phablet, and an 8-megapixel shooter will be available up front.

The Mate 8 will be made out of metal, just like its predecessor and a number of other handsets Huawei has released this year. GFXBench listing said that the device will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed, which means Huawei also intends to introduce a new version of their Emotion UI (EMUI). That is more or less it, we do know that the phablet will be announced on November 26th, and if today's leak is accurate, we also know how the phone will look like from the back. Stay tuned for additional info.
