Huawei recently posted strong figures and is expected to showcase the Mate 8 smartphone this year at IFA 2015.

Huawei has sent out invitations for its September 2 keynote at Berlin for IFA 2015. According to reports from China, the telecommunications company will announce the new Mate 8 smartphone as the successor to the Ascend Mate 7. Renders of the Mate 8 are currently circulating through Chinese media and social networks.

The images show LED flash for the rear and front cameras alongside a fingerprint sensor as well. The current Ascend Mate 7 has its Flash to the left of the rear camera instead. Additional speculation include a Q3 or Q4 2015 release date, 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC (4x A72 + 4x A53) and ARM Mali-T880 GPU, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal memory. The rear and front cameras are expected to be 21 MP and 8 MP, respectively. There is a chance that Huawei will launch a less expensive Mate 8 model with just 3 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC.

As Reuters reported earlier this month, smartphone sales for Huawei have jumped 59 percent for H1 2015 compared to a year before. Sales in China are particularly strong at a 124 percent increase during the same period. Overall, Huawei has sold 48.2 million smartphones this year with an annual target of 100 million. According to analysts from IDC, this is a realistic and attainable goal for the manufacturer.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
