Huawei unveils its flagship smartphone, the Mate 8

The Chinese telecommunications giant, Huawei, recently unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Mate 8. Although we're not entirely sure why we got invited, we attended the event to learn more about this game-changer.

The Mate 8 is a productivity-driven mobile phone with amazing performance and long battery life. It boasts a 6-inch high contrast display with a 2.5D curved diamond cut glass. It's powered by an Android Marshmallow operating system and has a quad-core CPU. Internal memory for this smartphone ranges from 32 GB with 3 GB RAM up to 64 GB with 4GB RAM. This can be expanded externally via microSD up to 128 GB.

Giving life to the Mate 8 is a non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. This can produce up to 528 hours of stand-by time or up to 98 hours of music. All this is housed in aerospace grade aluminum metal.

One of the main highlights of this powerful smartphone is its 16 MP, f/2.0, 27mm rear camera that has phase detection autofocus and a dual LED flash. It can shoot 1080p videos at 60 fps, 1080p at 30 fps, and an impressive 720p at 120 fps. The front camera is exceptional as well, it has an 8 MP, f/2.4, 26mm, that can shoot 1080p videos.

With the specs mentioned above and usage, the temperature of smartphones like these are expected to rise up quickly. This is not the case with the Mate 8 thanks to its advanced 6-layer thermal mechanics which allows faster heat dissipation.

Huawei Mate 8 delivers “the new style of business” concept ideal for today’s on-the-go professionals,” said South Pacific Region, Huawei Consumer Business Group President Mr. Peter Tong.

The Mate 8 also boasts several features for the on-the-go individuals such as the Split-screen mode for multitasking, Dual Sim, and fingerprint security that unlocks faster than any current mobile phone in the market today.

This flagship smartphone of Huawei is priced at P33,000 and is now available on stores nationwide. For more information about the Mate 8, visit the official Huawei Philippines Facebook page.
