Although this handset has been spotted passing through TENAA a few months ago, Huawei did not make the G8 official until now. The new handset joins the Mate S at IFA 2015 in Berlin and looks like a very interesting device for those interested in design before anything else.

Using an all-metal chassis, the Huawei G8 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch IPS multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels and 2.5D Gorilla Glass protection
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP with OIS on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop with Emotion UI 3.1
  • Battery: 3000 mAh

The handset also has a fingerprint scanner on the back that comes with Huawei Fingerprint Sense 2.0 technology. It should hit the market later this month in China, Egypt, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom for a recommended price of €399 EUR (roughly $450 USD), but availability and pricing for the US market have not been announced yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
