Can't wait for it,Will be my next upgrade,has a G7 at the moment and Loving it.....
Mate 8 is 185g and 7.9mm width, but it isn't a good design for the rear fingerprint reader, every time unlock the screen are some of the limitation because of holding the big while heavy phone. I really don't know why they design the fingerprint reader at the back it is looks same as the LG G4, when the phone place on the table or bed, it is annoying to pick up the phone for unlock, most people will press the fingerprint reader from front or side of the phone to unlock the screen and most people are unfamiliar to the back fingerprint reader, especially such a phablet.
Anyone outside China have to wait until February to get it .
As Huawei will relaunch it in CES for the international market .
Sophea, 30 Nov 2015I used Mate7 but now stopped using it because i don't like the color is worse than samsung now... moreYou don't like the color in the Mate7? If you mean camera then yes its better, but it won't be any LG kind of level, and not Samsung level. Improved and good enough IMO but not top of the top.
zephyr, 01 Dec 2015is this phone available in US?You will have to wait for CES in January next year for information on the international version.
I one of the owner of huawei product ( huawei mediapad x1) still waiting for update to the latest android system. I hope huawei would wake up from dreaming so that it concern to its service
For 6" size screen, the resolution should be at least FHD. I also wanted to use SD card in a seperate part than the 2nd simcard port.
AnonD-472470, 01 Dec 2015I think you can Get this phone by 2nd hand If you have friend in avaliable country. mean 1st d... moreNo need for that. Huawei sell their phones directly in Bangladesh. You can see their shops here and there in all over the country. Phones come here when it's available in the international market. Can be delayed one or two weeks.

Good Job Huawei, the best thing you have done is not going with 2k screen coz it will just eat up the battery.. i have LG G3, SGS edge+ and iphone 6 plus and i really prefer the Iphon's display even though it is a Full HD.
in india there is no any site on which this mobile is available for sale still....please provide service from your side to sale huawei mate 8 in India..quickly ....
But ppi pixel density it should be above 400
Then we consider smart phone....
Resolution 1080 x 1920 pixels (~368 ppi pixel density) ?????? all the flag ship phone is 2k i'm really disappointed
Hope battery is removable & hope it has screen option like Sony Z5 i.e. 5.2"(with AMOLED)
Rest of the specs are like hot cake.
