Being the new powerhouse among the three, the Mate 8 stands out with its specifications. It has the biggest 4GB RAM and has a better 16-megapixel camera module. It also boots the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow version. And let’s not forget the home-baked Kirin 950 chipset with a so-called i5 co-processor that should give powerful yet efficient performance on the Mate 8.

The last year’s Mate 7 only stands out with its slightly bigger battery with an additional 100mAh while the Mate S boast a more favorable AMOLED display with 401ppi.

The Huawei Mate 8 is already available in China and pricing starts at $480 or roughly Php 22,600 in local currency. International availability is expected to be announced in January of next year.
