If the Nexus 6P didn't cut it for you, you will be delighted to know that the Chinese conglomerate is working on another high-end handset. Numerous leaks and reports suggest that the company is working on the Huawei Mate 8.
We may have also gotten our first glimpse at the hardware specifications of the rumoured handset. According to which, the Huawei Mate 8 sports a 6-inch QHD (2560x1440) display (up from 6-inch FHD display in Mate 7). It is slated to be powered by Huawei's own HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC (four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, and four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.4GHz), and 3GB or 4GB of RAM options, and 32GB or 64GB of inbuilt storage options.
The rumours point to a CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 34,000) price tag for the 32GB variant, and a CNY 3,899 (roughly Rs. 40,000) tag for the 4GB RAM variant. As per the rumours, the handset will go on sale in late November or early December. We will have to wait for some time to check how accurate the rumour mill is.
