Huawei G8 with 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 615 SoC, 3GB RAM goes official

Huawei G8 adorns an all-metal polished regal look!

The year 2014 had been a great year for Huawei as far as their profits are concerned and looks like the growth is being continued even in this year as well. The company has unveiled a number of devices in the first half of this year, including several high-end devices like the Huawei P8 and Honor 7, and some mid-range smartphones and tablets. The Huawei Mate S is not the only device that Huawei is planning to offer to the world. The company has announced the G8- a premium device which will be priced at EUR 399 (approximately Rs. 30,000). Some of the markets where the G8 will be available include China, Egypt, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and United Kingdom.

The new G8 flaunts a 5.5 inch FHD display with a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass. The all metal body is certainly a highlight of the G8. The rear is equipped with a fingerprint sensor which can unlock the device, answer calls and even control alarms. Dark Silver, Gold and White colors will be the available color variants. Boasting a glass panel with arched sides and an overall oval look, the handset looks pleasing to the eye.

On the inside we come across a Snapdragon 615 instead of the 810. On the positive side, that's coupled with 3G of RAM. The 32 GB of inbuilt storage can be expanded up to 64 GB via micro SD card. The dual-SIM G8 ropes in a 3,000mAH battery and supports 4G on both the SIM cards.

A 13 MP rear camera adorns a Sapphire protection around the sensor, it also features a built-in OIS, RGBW sensor, ISP Foodie mode, and makeup mode. The 5 MP sensor is featured on the front as well. Running Android 5.1 Lollipop with Emotion UI skin on top the Huawei G8 is the first smartphone to feature Force Touch display, which can distinguish between a light tap and deep press. G8 measures 75mm wide and 150mm long, making it more compact than the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus.

So, verdict – if you are soon going to be in the market for a premium-looking phablet that doesn't topple your budget, make sure you get a good look at the G8.
