Huawei Mate 8 specs

Huawei has released their biggest and baddest phone ever to the public with the new Mate 8, and the on-paper specifications look impressive.

Featuring the new Kirin 950 processor and i5 coprocessor, we're promised better performance and better battery life. Of course, everything else needed to power a high-end Android phone is on-board as well — Android Marshmallow, a 4,000mAh battery and the promise of an awesome camera.

The Mate 8 is currently only available for the Chinese market, but Alex is having a close look at it direct from Shenzhen.
