Some animals out there in the wild are said to be rather elusive in their very own right, and that is true – after all, the harder it is to be found, the difficult it is to be hunted down, right? The Huawei Mate 8 happens to be one of those handsets that have yet to be released, and yet we only have information of it in snippets from here and there. There is still a whole lot that we do not know about the successor to the Ascend Mate 7, but it seems that the appearance of the Huawei NXT-AL10 in a GFXBench listing might just shed more light than we originally thought.
The GFXBench listing points to the handset’s name as the “Huawei NXT-AL10”, where it will arrive with a rather generous 6” display that boasts of Full HD resolution, despite rumors swirling around that the next generation Mate smartphone will carry a QHD resolution display. Perhaps one can boil this down to detection issues or a forced resolution, but we won’t really know until the real deal arrives.
Apart from that, it is touted that the smartphone will run on Huawei’s new custom Kirin 950 chipset that will feature a quartet of Cortex-A72 cores at 2.2GHz – without ruling out the possibility of 2.4GHz, while there will be another four Cortex-A53 cores that have been clocked at 2.0GHz. Other hardware specifications point to an ARM Mali-T880 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, accompanied by a 15MP camera at the back with a 7MP selfie shooter, dual SIM support, a microSD memory card slot, NFC capability and without ruling out the possibility of a fingerprint reader.
