Huawei announced the Mate 8 flagship late last year, however, the phone was finally available for sale only in 2016. The company announced and released the device in China, and now those who are looking to get hold of the flagship internationally can get it via the retailer lightinthebox. The store has listed the Mate 8 flagship for sale at a price tag of $599, but you can get it for $20 OFF if you buy it soon. The sale starts from 12AM on February 23 Beijing time. Just use the coupon HUAWEIMATE8 for availing the discount.

Mate 8 with the new Kirin 950 chipset on board is considered as one of the best phablets in the market. The phone features a beautiful sleek body with premium specs, making it a powerful flagship in this price segment. In case you were looking forward to buy this beast, this would be a good time since you can get it for just $579. But there’s a catch, only the first 20 units sold from 12AM (Beijing time) tomorrow will be eligible for the $20 discount.

As for the specs, the Huawei Mate 8 sports a large 6-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution IPS display with the Cortex A72 powered Kirin 950 chipset under the hood. The model being offered for sale comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which is further expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD. There are dual SIM card slots with 4G LTE support. For optics, you have a powerful 16MP rear camera while up front, there is an 8MP Selfie shooter. The battery is pretty large as well, of 4000mAh capacity.
The overall package is quite attractive. The Mate 8 is costlier than other Chinese flagships out there, but Huawei has always aimed to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple flagships. So, if you were planning to purchase the device, then head over to the listing and check out the device.
