Huawei G8 was announced back in July with a memorable all-metal design, a 5.5" 1080p display and Snapdragon 615 chipset. Other key features include a 13MP rear camera with a dual-LED flash, a 5MP selfie snapper, 2GB/3GB RAM depending on the storage setting - 16GB or 32GB options, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Huawei brought the G8 today at IFA and we spent some quality time with it. The silver version we saw looked indeed gorgeous and we could pick it next to a Mate or an Honor right away because of its rounder corners.
Metal looks good on most of the smartphones today and the G8 is no exception. If you happen to opt for a G8 in the upcoming months you'll be definitely treating yourself with a looker.
A peek on the back reveals a familiar picture - the protruding 13MP camera lens is protected by a piece of sapphire glass, and there is the big fingerprint reader. We love what Huawei is doing with the finger sensor on the back - you can use it for snapping selfies or pulling down the notification dropdown.
You've probably noticed the two pieces of plastic around the top and bottom of the G8 - those hide the antennas. According to Huawei the G8 packs a duo of antennas to boost your signal like never before. We couldn’t test this right now though.
Huawei will be releasing the G8 this month and it is expected to cost about €300 or so.
