Huawei Mate 8 Design
Huawei has leaked a video on a china website “SHU ON KWOK” showing the first prototype of Mate 8. In the video, the Mate 8 looked pretty similar to the 7 Honor. There were only a couple of minor differences on the front, where the LED and the front camera seemed to be in different places. The other change in this Mate 8 is that the speaker is changed from the back although it is not looking bad.
The display size is somewhat bigger than the previous Mate 7 Secondly, the lower edge of the screen, which houses a company logo, and the top edge, are narrower than its predecessor.
Huawei Mate 8 Price
The price of the previous model of Mate series (Huawei Mate 7) was 599 Euros. So it is believed that the coming successor of the Mate 7 will also be in the same price but there is a rumor that the price of Mate 7 will be around 680 Euros.
