Huawei G8 smartphone unveiled through leaked images
Having just uncovered the Huawei Mate 8, the Chinese manufacturer appears set to release even more smartphones this year. A new model under the name "RIO-AL00" has been spotted at the Chinese telecommunications agency TENAA for testing.
The new model is likely to be the mainstream Huawei G8. The data claims that the LTE-enabled smartphone will carry a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC with Adreno 405 graphics, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory. The rear camera is expected to be 13 MP with dual LED Flash and a fingerprint sensor right next to the lens.
Chinese media are guessing a launch price of around 2000 Yuan, which would be roughly 300 Euros. It remains to be seen whether or not Huawei will announce the G8 or even the previously rumored Mate 8 at IFA this year in Berlin. The Mate 8 may see a delay to 2016 and the manufacturer could instead announce the Ascend Mate 7 and Mate 7 Plus (or Mate 7S) for a launch later this year.
