Considering the amount of memory, there will be three versions of Huawei Mate 8 available. The 3 GB RAM version will be available with 32 GB of internal memory. 64 GB and 128 GB internal memory versions of Huawei Mate 8 will be sporting the huge 4 GB of RAM.

The design of the device is changed a bit from the previous devices of Huawei Mate series. The fingerprint scanner is round is shape and so is the primary camera lens. Also the “screen-to-body ratio” is improved much. CPU and GPU are both improved as well. Though Huawei Mate 8 still comes with a Mali-T880 MP4 which is not the best in the market, it would be good to see how nice it really performs with a better CPU and OS.
