Huawei Mate 8 Leaks In Live Pictures, Or Is It Mate 7S Or Mate S?

By 02:43 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments

The Huawei Mate 8 has been in the rumorland for quite a while. It was touted for an August 20 release, but we got the Honor 7i today instead. Then it was reportedly coming in Berlin's IFA next month, while some latest rumors postponed its launch for early next year.

We thought we were sure Huawei will be outing the rumored Mate 7S or just Mate S at IFA, but now we are not so confident. The last couple of days the supposed Mate 7S leaked via the Chinese TENAA and it looks slightly different from what we are seeing today. Particularly the placement of the front capturing camera is wrong. So we are either looking at two different devices, or just one with a massive name confusion created by all the leaks.

Anyway, the Mate 8 showed its face through some nice renders and its IFA announcement seems imminent after Huawei itself began teasing its next flagship.

Today we can finally see the Huawei Mate 8, or Mate S, or Mate 7S, or whatever it's called in live photos, and while those are low-res, they seem like the real deal. Check it out.

The Mate 8 is expected to come with a bezel-less 6" IPS Quad HD display and to run on the powerful Kirin 950 chipset with 3GB or 4GB RAM. The Kirin 950 chip is expected to pack an octa-core processor with 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.4Giga Hertz (GHz) and 4x Cortex-A57. The GPU in charge of graphics will be a Mali-T880.

The Mate 8 is also rumored to offer a 20.7MP main capturing camera and an 8MP selfie shooter, a fingerprint sensor, LTE Cat.6 connectivity, a massive 4,500 mAh battery, and a brand recent Emotion 4.0 UI on top of Android Lollipop.

September 2 is very close, so everything will become clear very soon, including the name of this device.
