Huawei’s flagship phablet, the Mate 8, will be released by the end of this week, though a selection of leaked photos portraying the device has surfaced, accompanied by potential key selling points that we will most likely see with the forthcoming handset.
Since the device belongs to Huawei’s premium array of smartphones, we feel safe to claim that the Mate 8 will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight out of the box, skinned under the latest version of Emotion UI, EMUI 4.0, which will be essentially revealed along with the said smartphone.
Independent ISP (Image Signal Processor)
Besides the Unicron 950 processor that the Mate 8 will be equipped with, it has been suggested that Huawei will go with its very own independent ISP technology this year.
In case you are not familiar, the primary task that the ISP undertakes is called demosaicing, where it guesses the colors that cannot be sensed by your camera’s CMOS, while it also controls autofocus, exposure, and white balance for the camera system.
Moreover, the particular feature will enhance the night and backlit capabilities of the Mate 8 camera.
It is already known that the Mate 8 phablet will come with the HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, housing eight cores; four Cortex-A57 clocked at 2GHz and four Cortex-A72 clocked at 2.4GHz. This implementation results to an overall improvement of the accuracy of the GPS positioning, even when the signal is relatively poor.
Dual 4G card slot
Since the Mate 8 will be mostly targeting emerging markets, such as India and China, it will pack the Dual-SIM capability that is on high demand in the particular areas. Though, if not the sole, it will be amid the few dual-SIM phones to allow the use of two 4G SIM cards simultaneously.
Longer battery life
To accommodate the humongous 6-inch IPS LCD 1440 x 2560 pixels (~490 ppi pixel density) display, Huawei is said to back the device up with a whopping 6,000mAh battery, which will be fair enough for the spec sheet at hand.
HD Voice capabilities
Due to the addition of the Unicron 930 processor, the Huawei Mate 8 will deliver HD crystal clear reception during phone calls.
