Huawei Mate S has been followed by the impressive G8. Although not as powerful as the Mate S, the Huawei G8 sports a full metal body which reproduces a pretty premium feel and looks classy too.
The smartphone boasts a 5.5-inch Full HD display recreating bright colours and crystal clear images. Also, the G8 comes with wide viewing angles and a 2.5D Curved Gorilla Glass screen. But, above all the USP of the device is that it features a full metal body and also has a fingerprint scanner at the back. The company claims that the smartphone includes Fingerprint Sense 2.0.
In terms of imaging, there is a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sapphire protected sensor coupled with an LED flash for capturing images and recording videos in low light conditions as well. On the front, the G8 comes with a 5-megapixel front shooter. The primary camera comes with various modes like Optical Image Stabilization, RGBW sensor, ISP Foodie mode and makeup mode to add flavour to your images.
Adding power and ensuring seamless performance is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. To keep users hooked into multitasking and to deliver lag-free performance the G8 has 3GB of RAM. With 32GB of onboard storage, you can store all that you want and if you feel that its not enough there is an expansion slot that can expand the storage up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Another interesting aspect of the device is that the dual-SIM handset supports 4G LTE on both the SIM cards. Other options that help you to remain connected include 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and a microUSB 2.0 port. The handset is fuelled by a Li-Ion 3,000 mAh battery and runs the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with Emotion UI skin on top.
