As for the RAM, the Mate 8 is available in either 3GB or 4GB variants. The 3GB variant is only available with a 32GB of storage space option. The 4GB variant on the other hand is available in 64GB or 128GB storage options.

At the back of the Mate 8 sits a 16MP camera with a fingerprint sensor below it. This camera is made by Sony so you know it’s good.  Some leaks had said that the Mate 8 will have a 20MP camera but it looks like Huawei stuck with a 16MP unit instead. At the front is an 8MP camera perfect for selfies and video calls.

Providing all the power is a 4,000 mAh battery. The phone is launching with Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight out of the box.

The Huawei Mate 8 has been released in China first and will be heading to other international markets early next year. Pricing varies depending on storage space with the 3GB/32GB model going for $480 (approximately Ksh 49,000).
