According to it, referred to as "Huawei NXT-AL10", will spout a large 6.0-inch display, just like previous rumors have suggested. However, another recent source hints at QHD resolution, whereas this result suggest a FullHD panel. It might be a detection issues or perhaps even a forced resolution, as the rest of the data does seem to mostly match up.

The phone is said to be powered by the OEM's new custom Kirin 950 chipset. It promises to deliver unprecedented power thanks to a 16nm FinFET production process and a big.LITTLE architecture, with four Cortex-A72 cores running at 2.2 GHz or perhaps even 2.4 GHz and another four Cortex-A53 ones, clocked at 2.0 GHz.

The bundled GPU is the impressive ARM Mali-T880, which should also be joined by an i7 coprocessor and a Tensilica Hi-Fi 4 independent audio chip. The sheet also lists 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage (well 3.7GB and 53GB, to be exact) and previous info also hints at a less powerful 3GB version, with 32GB of bundled space.

As for the camera, what was previously said to be a 13MP main shooter is now being reported as 15MP, with a maximum resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. Some quick math reviews that this is actually a lot closer to 16MP. The second camera is said to be 7MP with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels.

Other specs on the Huawei Mate 8 should include dual SIM support, a microSD card slot, NFC and perhaps also a fingerprint reader and Force Touch display, like the Mate S, but the latter two are largely unconfirmed. In any case, we will know for sure come November 26, when Huawei should finally unveil the phone. The high-end device is said to carry a CNY 3,299 ($520) price tag for the 3GB RAM variant and CNY 3,899 ($610) for the 4GB one.

The Huawei Mate 8 release date is closing in and with talks about the handset launching with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board, we're excited. Hopefully, the Mate 8 price won't be as outrageous as the Huawei Mate S price, although if Force Touch does indeed make it to the handset, it might sport a similar price tag as the newly launched phablet. We are looking forward to Huawei P9, We'll keep you guys updated about the Huawei Mate 8 and its features once more information is released.
