On Thursday April, 7th we headed down to the Launch of the brand new Huawei Mate 8 in Johannesburg to see what the phone that boasts so much had to offer! We were met with an impressive display in true Huawei style at one of Johannesburg’s hottest venues, Studio Blu.
Emcee for the evening was performer and Creative Director for the South African wing, J Something. The event hosted some pretty big players in the South African Media industry who were also proud ambassdors for the brand new Mate 8. Olympic gold medalist Ryk Neethling, business woman Lynette Magasa and fashion designer Shaldon Kopman put a unique spin on how individuals from each industry could get the most out of a smartphone.
The main Camera boasts an impressive 16 megapixels while the front camera has 8, which means crisp, clear selfies that will make you forget all about filters! The Huawei Mate 8 has a recommended retail price of R12 999, we love the selection of colours, available in champagne gold, moonlight silver and space grey.
One of the most appealing features that we simply had to tell you about was the impressive 4000mah battery that comes packed in the slim body of the phone. 4000mah, that’s incredible! Compared to some of the top phones on the market the Huawei Mate 8 definitely brought one of the most important features to any smartphone alive inside such a compact body. Charging isn’t a big deal either 2.5 Hours connected to a power source equals to a full battery that can last you just over two days.
The Mate 8 has some pretty impressive features and to top it off with an attractive price point that is certainly appealing to the South African consumer for an upper-class, top notch smart phone.
