We’ve seen the device pass through TENAA a few months ago, and now it’s official – alongside the brand new Mate S, Huawei has officially launched the G8 handset at IFA 2015.

Featuring a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, 2.5D Gorilla Glass and an all-metal chassis, the Huawei G8 looks to be quite the attractive device. It’s powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 3GB of RAM, and also comes with 32GB of on-board storage with microSD expansion up to 64GB. Rounding out the specs, it also comes with a 13MP rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, a 5MP front-facing camera, dual SIM card slots, a big 3000mAh battery, and runs Huawei’s Emotion UI software overlay atop Android 5.1 Lollipop.


There’s also a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back side of the handset, which Huawei says comes with its Fingerprint Sense 2.0 technology.

This 4G LTE-capable device will be available sometime this month for the recommended price of €399. So far, we know the device will launch in China, Egypt, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. For more information on the Huawei G8, check out the official product page at this link.
