News & Reviews: Huawei Mate 8
Last Updated: Nov 24, 2015
There are a few reports that Huawei has inserted a clue inside their invites for the upcoming Huawei Mate 8 official event (26 November). Inside the invitation card there is a 32GB flash memory storage. What does this mean? Did they accidentally put in the disk in all of the invitation cards? Seems unlikely.
As you may know, it’s tradition that smartphones will have a 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB worth of storage space. With this mysterious 32GB disk in the card, it looks like they are trying to tell us that the Mate 8 will just start off with the 32GB version.

Wow, just when you thought Huawei will go back to sleep after releasing the Huawei Mate S in Malaysia at the end of last month and now they have teased us with a possible announce date for the Huawei Mate 8. The Internet being the Internet has also resulted in a few leaked pictures of the smartphone.
Whatever their plans may be, it looks like they’re trying to do a double kill with the speculated Kirin chip scheduled for 5 November (one more day!). According to Mobile-dad.com, the Huawei Mate 8 is likely to be powered by the new Kirin 950 processor. Release date for the Mate 8 is rumoured to be dated early December after its unveiling on 26 November (if that actually is the case).
