While we eagerly await a rumored Nexus device from Huawei, a new device was just announced under the company name, and it’s sure to catch the attention of mobile design enthusiasts. The Huawei G8 sports an all-metal body and specs that put it around the mid-range territory:
- 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 display at 401 ppi
- Snapdragon 615 processor (unknown clock speed)
- Android 5.1 Lollipop with Huawei Emotion UI
- 3GB of RAM
- 32GB of internal storage
- 13MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- 3,000 mAh battery
- Fingerprint sensor
While the specs aren’t going to put it in contention with the flagship devices of today, Huawei has certainly shown that it can do premium design very well, which might be a factor as we get closer to a rumored Nexus launch on September 29th. Take a look at a few more press images of the G8 below.
Huawei failed to mention a release date or pricing, but we do know this device will likely be sold in Asian markets first, followed by a possible U.S. launch.
