Huawei typically doesn’t have many devices that we hopelessly pine over (not that they aren’t great), but after learning that a possible Huawei Nexus smartphone might be in the pipeline and that it would be based on the Huawei Ascend Mate 8, we’re paying a lot more attention to any rumours regarding this upcoming device. Today, a render of the device has leaked out, showing much of the same compared to last years Ascend Mate 7 – the device is generally metallic, still with a fingerprint scanner adorning the back of the device, though it appears the Ascend Mate 8 may be getting a metal strip around its outer edges.
Along with the render, we’re also treated to specs for the Ascend Mate 8, which include a Huawei-made Kirin 950 processor, 6-inch Quad HD display, and 20MP camera. There are reportedly also two variants which will either have 3GB RAM and 32GB storage or 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It will be interesting to see how much of the Ascend Mate 8 is re-used in the Huawei Nexus device, although we’ve heard absolutely nothing about the device besides the fact that it probably exists.
