The Mate 8 takes the look and feel of the Mate series to a whole new level. Boasting a vivid 6″ FHD display, an ultra slim design, a re-designed fingerprint sensor that’s faster and more reliable, and a sleek aluminum unibody design, the Mate 8 is sure to impress.
Metallic Unibody Design
Unique 2.5D Diamond Cut Glass
User-Friendly Fingerprint Sensor
Feels as Good as It Looks
To give the Mate 8 its smooth finish, the display is covered with 2.5D diamond cut glass, sculpted with ultra-fast glass cutting technology for a seamless finish. This unique production process also means that the latest addition to the Mate series is slimmer than ever, with a larger screen-to-body ratio than any other smartphone in its category.
Knows You Like No Other
The fingerprint sensor on the back of the Mate 8 has been re-designed for enhanced performance. The circular sensor matches the shape of your finger, and the depth of the concave area has been decreased to 0.45 mm to enable your finger to get closer to the chipset for improved recognition accuracy and speed. In addition, the metallic ring has been removed for a minimalist design.
Larger Screen-to-body Ratio
Mate 8 uses a 6-inch FHD screen with 95% color saturation. Even with a larger screen, the smart design of Mate 8 is more compact than previous models with a 85% screen-to-body ratio.
Slimmer Dimensions and Thinner Edges
Mate 8 has slimmer dimensions and 7.9mm edges – 0.4mm thinner than Mate 7. By using diamond cutting technology, it makes Mate 8 visually thinner than other products.
Sandblasting on the Rear Surface
Mate 8 employs meticulous yet soft sandblasting on the rear surface. The combination of sandblasting, trimming, and the fine metallic drawing process contribute to a rich yet smooth texture.
Life’s True Colors
Sometimes the most important choices are the hardest ones to make. That’s why the Mate 8 is available in four stunning colors: champagne gold, moonlight silver, sky grey, and mocha brown.
All the Time You Need, For Everything You Want to Do
With its 4000 mAh high-capacity battery, the new Mate 8 gives you more time to call, connect, play, and watch without needing to worry about running out of power. Thanks to its highly efficient Kirin 950 chip with SmartPower technology, the Mate 8 sets new standards for smartphone battery life.
Long Standby Time
The Mate 8 sports a 4000 mAh high-capacity battery combined with a Kirin950 chipset and SmartPower technology. The battery provides an incredible 1.65 days of use for heavy users (or 2.36 days for regular users). And when you’re not using your Mate 8, power management technology helps to give you an unprecedented 22 days’ standby time.
Power Up with Less Down Time
With Huawei’s cutting-edge 9V/2A fast-charging technology, you can fully charge your Mate 8 in just 2.5 hours. You can get a full day’s use out of a 30-minute charge-perfect for when time is precious and power outlets are scarce.
Fine Tuned for Optimum Efficiency
