Peter, 05 January, 2016

Welcome to the US, Huawei Mate 8, but sorry you can't stay here. Huawei opened up its product presentations with its new flagship (which was already official, by the way) and unveiled the first-wave launch markets, along with the price. The phone that is coming to the US is the Huawei GX8, a version of the G8 / G7 Plus that's already available in other markets.

The Huawei Mate 8, a 6" metal behemoth, will launch across Europe, the Middle East, Southeast China, South Africa and Mexico. Here's the full list:

The price was unveiled in Euro only. For the 3GB RAM / 32GB storage model prepare to shell out 600, while the 4GB RAM / 64GB storage model will set you back 700 (that's with VAT included).

Oh, and did you hear about the Mocha Brown color? Huawei is quite proud of this Mate 8 paintjob and underlined that it's a unique color among smartphones.

The Huawei GX8 will be available in Q1 from Amazon US and GetHuawei.com for $350.
