Huawei’s Mate 8 is spotted on benchmarking site, confirms Kirin 950 CPU, 4GB RAM and 6-Inch display


It was only yesterday that Huawei issued the invites for the launch of its upcoming Mate 8 flagship smartphone on November 26, and now the handset has been spotted being put through its paces on the GFXBench benchmarking site, confirming some specifications along the way. 


As you can see from the image above, the Mate 8 does indeed sport a 6-inch display with Full HD resolution, and not a 5.7-inch screen as previously thought. The Kirin 950 processor is present, although it is clocked at 2.2GHz and not 2.4GHz as previously speculated. The fact that there is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage implies that this is the higher specced variant of the Mate 8, because the lower specced version is believed to feature 3GB and 32GB of storage. Finally, where it was thought to use a 20MP rear snapper, the benchmark says it is instead a 16MP sensor.

There’s just over 3 weeks to go until the Mate 8 is officially revealed on November 26, what are your thoughts on the Mate 8 so far?
