Here is good news for tech savvy consumers in the UAE as Huawei's latest gadgets have arrived to power stores across the country.
Huawei has brought the all new Mate 8 smartphone and M2 Tablet in the Middle East markets soon after the first revealing during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month.
Dubai became the second global city to witness the launch on Monday evening.
Featuring the most powerful chipset, a high-capacity battery and stylish design - including a unique mocha brown color option - the Huawei Mate 8 is the ideal smartphone for today's on-the-go professional.
The Mate 8 is designed from the ground up for productivity and its hardware and software have been fine-tuned to provide an elegant, efficient experience.
"2015 was a successful year for the Huawei Consumer Business Group here in the Middle East and we anticipate 2016 to be an even bigger one with immense growth in the region following the launch of these two flagship devices," Sandeep Saihgal, vice president of Huawei Consumer Business Group told Khaleej Times at the launch event.
The Mate 8 is the ultimate high-end smartphone designed for the professional, striking the perfect balance between high performance and long battery life, Saihgal said, adding: "And when designing the M2, we equipped it with an impeccable sound system to take the user's experience to the next level. Both of these devices reflect Huawei's continued dedication to bringing the latest innovation and style to our consumers."
Phone features
The Mate 8 features a refined, elegant design that highlights its beautiful 6-inch high contrast display. With a leading 83 per cent screen-to-body ratio, the phone is able to stay sleek and compact without sacrificing a desired large display.
The Huawei Mate 8 introduces a new generation of fingerprint security with enhanced protection technology.
Running on Huawei's EMUI 4.0, based on Android Marshmallow 6.0, the Huawei Mate 8 offers hundreds of user experience tweaks and improvements, including a built-in automatic defragmentation service that continues optimizing system performance.
Featuring groundbreaking hardware, the Mate 8 is the first smartphone to run the Kirin 950 chipset, with CPU boosting power up 100 percent, GPU performance up 125 percent, and power efficiency up 70 percent vs. the Kirin 925.
Equipped with a 4000mAh high-density battery, the Mate 8 delivers industry-leading power efficiency offering over two days of normal usage. And with rapid charging technology, the phone is able to charge a day's worth of power in just 30 minutes.
Mate 8 also features an advanced six-layer thermal mechanics, which allows higher heat dissipation leading to an excellent holding experience and lower power consumption. Huawei invested $98 million over three years to develop the first proprietary image sensor processor for faster focusing, higher clarity, and more accurate colour shading.
Huawei M2 partnership
The Huawei M2 Tablet users will have an opportunity to enjoy the rich sonic experience of Harman/Kardon, as the result of a new partnership that integrates that company's leading audio technology into the 10-inch tablet.
In the M2 Tablet, Harman/Kardon will provide its cutting-edge Clari-Fi audio restoration technology designed to recover the lost details of compressed digital music. The resulting audio is clearer, crisper, wider and more dynamic - resulting in improved realism and fidelity.
