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.
