Huawei Mate 8 Handset Sets A New Benchmark In Mobile Battery Use

Huawei Technologies Australia has recently announced the Australian launch of its highly anticipated Mate 8! Remember the launch of the P8 we went to Singapore for? Good times.

The new phone is the latest in the technology giant’s ‘Mate’ smartphone series, boasting a range of advanced features including outstanding performance and ground-breaking power, offering users up to two days of uninterrupted battery life – a major step-up from the P8, which could muster about a day.

The Mate 8 strikes the perfect balance between fast performance and long lasting, two-day battery life, focusing-in on the Huawei user’s experience and penchant for all things social media and constant global interconnectedness. It comes bedecked with a gigantic 4,000 mAh battery, allowing regular phone users an experience up to 2.26 days’ power consumption, while heavy users will have up to 1.57 days of non-stop battery life.

It’s a sleek phone that takes the best of previous learnings with earlier models, combines them with the best of Android technologies for users on the Australian Vodaphone network if you’re after a contract and puts them into a great, new piece of tech.

“With superior advancements in technology and a focus on seamless design, the Mate 8 is one of the most powerful smartphones ever made, said Huawei Australia’s Head of Consumer Marketing, Marc Di Giacomo.

“The Mate 8 reinforces Huawei’s ongoing commitment to deliver the best in advanced technology, seamlessly integrating into modern day life and enabling customers to stay connected on the go.”
