Huawei Launches the Mate 8, MediaPad M2 10.0
The 8th of March, 2016 saw Huawei in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia launching their latest flagship to the local market the Huawei Mate 8. The Huawei Mate 8 is the top of the line flagship Android smartphone from Huawei currently featuring a 6-inch Full HD 1080p display topped with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 to ensure it stays scratch free and resistant to any impact it may face in its life. Underneath the display you would find Android’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s Emotion UI 4.0 for that unique Huawei experience. Powering the device is a HiSilicon Kirin 950 octa-core processor constructed with quad Cortex A72 clocked at 2.3GHz and quad Cortex A53 clocked at 1.8GHz paired with a Mali-T880 GPU and a 4GB RAM for a theoretically smooth processing. It packs a 16-megapixel main camera with f/2.0 and can shoot 1080p videos at 60fps, paired with an 8-megapixel front facing camera for those who is looking for a decent selfie. Memory comes in the form of 32GB or 64GB flavours internally but it is expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD for those media behemoths. For those who runs two numbers and in need of a device that can handle two SIM cards, this is one phone that can step up to the job as it supports two nano-SIM cards ready with Cat 6 LTE connectivity. With so much to offer it only makes sense that this is one power hungry device. Luckily though it is packed with a 4000mAh battery to last. All this is wrapped in a 7.9mm slim aluminium body for that quality finish. Some of you may notice that not many high profile manufacturers actually use HiSilicon’s processor and they are plenty unheard of as well. With the kind of architecture and the sort of power pushed out though it does not look like a pushover and in theory should give the Huawei Mate 8 plenty of processing power. We would not know though until we test it ourselves. The Huawei Mate 8 starts at MYR2,099 and will be available in 4 colours.
Next on their list is their latest entry into the tablet market in Malaysia, their MediaPad M2 10.0. Now this tablet is created, as Huawei has claimed with entertainment in mind. Underneath that Full HD 1080p 10.0-inch display is a Harman Kardon audio drivers which should make things interesting for movie watching and music. Beneath the all metal body as well is a Kirin 930 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz and 1.5GHz at each quad Cortex A53 paired with 3GB of RAM and a Mali-T628 to ensure all your media entertainment runs without a hiccup. Camera of the device is nothing to shout about though with 8-megapixels out the back and 2-megapixels up front. The maximum memory you get with the tablet is up to 32GB but its expandable up to 128GB via MicroSd so you will not be wanting for space to store all those movies. It also has a MicroSIM tray ready with LTE connectivity to carry your internet around in case you want to stream a movie while you take the train. All this is also juiced with a 4800mAh battery wrapped in the 7.8mm metal body. The MediaPad M2 will start at MYR1,299.
Lastly though, and certainly not the least is the Watch. The Huawei Watch has been in the wearables market for some time now. It is also one of the most talked Android Wear to date due to its premium feel and construction. Some even argued that it is probably one of the best Android Wear you can get your hands on today. With it being International Women’s day Huawei decided to play its part celebrating the day with the introduction of the 44mm version of the Watch targeted to Women. This one comes in two flavours. The Jewel option will come in a Swarovski crystal wrapped encasing while the standard elegant version will be the usual stainless steel case. The elegant Watch is priced at MYR1,999 and the Jewel is MYR2,299.
