Pow­er­ful de­vice, per­fect per­for­mance

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TECH WORLD - Ef­fi­cient power con­sump­tion

CHAL­LENG­ING the tra­di­tional busi­ness land­scape with its in­no­va­tive prod­uct of­fer­ings, Huawei Tech­nolo­gies is now re­defin­ing pre­mium liv­ing and busi­ness man­age­ment with the Huawei Mate 8.

A pro­duc­tiv­ity- driven smart­phone with sig­nif­i­cantly en­hanced power, ef­fi­ciency and bat­tery life, the Huawei Mate 8 con­tin­ues Huawei’s track record of de­liv­er­ing high- end devices that re­flect global con­sumer de­mand.

The Mate 8 is cur­rently the most pow­er­ful smart­phone in the mar­ket and fea­tures sev­eral in­dus­try firsts, in­clud­ing the Kirin 950 chipset, 16nm FinFET Plus chip tech­nol­ogy and an ARM Cor­tex- A72 pro­ces­sor.

To­gether, th­ese el­e­ments al­low the mod­ern pro­fes­sional to stay more pro­duc­tive and con­nected than ever be­fore.

It runs on the next- gen­er­a­tion Huawei EMUI 4.0 op­er­at­ing sys­tem based on An­droid Marsh­mal­low. Com­pared with the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of EMUI, EMUI 4.0 fea­tures more than 500 in­di­vid­ual user ex­pe­ri­ence tweaks and im­prove­ments.

One key im­prove­ment is the in­clu­sion of de­frag­ment­ing tech­nol­ogy that au­to­mat­i­cally de­frag­ments the de­vice, im­prov­ing user ex­pe­ri­ence and en­hanc­ing per­for­mance.

At the prod­uct launch ear­lier this month, Huawei Tech­nolo­gies Malaysia Con­sumer Busi­ness Group coun­try di­rec­tor Zhu Yong Gang said, “We be­lieve the Mate 8 will fit the life­styles of many in­di­vid­u­als here. We are ex­cited to be one of the first in the re­gion to bring the Mate 8 to Malaysia.”

Ac­cord­ing to Zhu, Huawei’s con­tin­u­ous com­mit­ment to meet the evolv­ing needs of con­sumers has re­sulted in the com­pany en­sur­ing the Mate 8 re­de­fines de­sign and ex­pe­ri­ence, bring­ing about a new style for young busi­ness elites.

The Mate 8 of­fers speed, con­ve­nience and con­nec­tiv­ity in a beau­ti­fully de­signed pack­age that stands out in a com­pet­i­tive land­scape.

The compact, slim phone has an 83% screen- to- body ra­tio. Its edges are only 2.7mm wide – 0.4mm thin­ner than the Mate 7. Its di­men­sions are 157.1mm x 80.6mm x 7.9mm and it weighs ap­prox­i­mately 185g.

The Mate 8 has a six- inch FHD screen with neg­a­tive LCD. The screen’s 95% colour sat­u­ra­tion is higher than both the Mate 7 ( 71%) and iPhone 6s Plus ( 68%).

The side and rear sur­faces of the phone are de­signed with great pre­ci­sion. A metic­u­lous sand­blast­ing tech­nique is used on the rear sur­face to cre­ate an el­e­gant tex­tured ap­pear­ance.

The glass of the rear cam­era is placed ac­cu­rately to the near­est mi­cron with a metic­u­lous pro­ce­dure of sand­blast­ing, trim­ming and fine metal­lic draw­ing.

The Mate 8 comes in four themed colours: cham­pagne gold, moon­light sil­ver, space grey and mocha brown.

De­signed for users to ex­pe­ri­ence a world with­out bound­aries, the Mate 8’ s Kirin 950 chipset strikes the per­fect bal­ance be­tween high per­for­mance and low- power con­sump­tion.

Fur­ther­more, the SOC chip ar­chi­tec­ture in­cludes new 8+ 1 cores: quad- core Cor­tex A72 2.3GHz+, quad- core Cor­tex A53 1.8GHz+ and i5 co- pro­ces­sor.

The Mate 8 is the first smart­phone in the in­dus­try to adopt the 4 x A72+ 4 x A53 big. LIT­TLE ar­chi­tec­ture and the first to use the ARM Cor­tex A72 SOC pro­ces­sor. With the Kirin950, the Mate 8’ s CPU boost­ing power in­creases by 100%, GPU per­for­mance up to 125% and power ef­fi­ciency up to 70% com­pared with the Kirin925.

This smart­phone’s in­no­va­tive six- layer ther­mal con­duc­tiv­ity struc­ture al­lows for higher heat dis­si­pa­tion and lower power con­sump­tion.

The DX19 ther­mal ma­te­ri­als’ con­duc­tiv­ity is nine times higher than stain­less steel, re­sult­ing in a phone with a cooler tem­per­a­ture. For ex­am­ple, af­ter 30 min­utes of gam­ing, the Mate 8’ s tem­per­a­ture is recorded at 4.1° C, which is cooler than the iPhone 6s Plus.

It also al­lows users to take ad­van­tage of its high per­for­mance with­out los­ing bat­tery power quickly. The de­vice is equipped with a 4,000mAh high- den­sity bat­tery, com­pared with the 2,750mAh bat­tery of the Ap­ple iPhone 6s Plus.

To pre­vent the bat­tery from run­ning low too quickly, the Mate 8 com­bines the re­mark­able Kirin 950 chip with the new EMUI 4.0 smart­power tech­nol­ogy, which al­lows users to en­joy a long standby time. In fact, reg­u­lar users can go with­out charg­ing their phone for 2.36 days and heavy users for 1.65 days.

The charg­ing speed is 105% faster than the Ap­ple iPhone 6s Plus. With only 30 min­utes of charg­ing, the bat­tery is charged to 37%, which equates to a whole day of reg­u­lar us­age.

As the Mate 8 is meant to as­sist a new gen­er­a­tion of busi­ness in­di­vid­u­als and en­trepreneurs sync work with leisure, se­cu­rity is a ma­jor con­cern.

The smart­phone comes with next- gen­er­a­tion fin­ger­print recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy; its speed is twice that of the Mate 7 and the er­ror rate has been de­creased by half.

The con­cave depth of the cir­cu­lar fin­ger­print sen­sor on the back of the phone has been re­duced from 0.85mm to 0.45mm, in­creas­ing the ef­fec­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tion area by 10% and fur­ther im­prov­ing user ex­pe­ri­ence.

The Mate 8 also has a pro­tected fire­wall formed by the Kirin950’ s TrustZone and se­cure OS. The phone au­to­mat­i­cally saves fin­ger­print data and has strong chip- level se­cu­rity achieved by the hard­ware iso­la­tion be­tween op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment and stor­age space of the An­droid sys­tem.

Data pro­tec­tion is high pri­or­ity – ev­ery time a user reads or writes data, au­to­matic en­cryp­tion and de­cryp­tion are logged into the chip, pro­tected by TrustZone. If a user’s Mate 8 is stolen, this data can­not be ex­tracted.

The Mate 8 en­ables the mi­croSD card to lock, pre­vent­ing any­one from ac­cess­ing con­tent in the card with­out a pass­word so that user data can­not be ob­tained if the phone is stolen.

The Mate 8 is per­fect for the mod­ern on- the- go pro­fes­sion­als who need to be con­stantly con­nected any­where in the world.

The smart­phone comes with built- in sup­port for var­i­ous net­work bands and 1,334 sets of op­er­a­tion pa­ram­e­ters. There­fore, it can be used in 217 coun­tries and re­gions.

The de­vice in­te­grates the world’s lead­ing Cat6 LTE In­ter­net con­nec­tion tech­nol­ogy, of­fer­ing down­load speeds of up to 300Mbps.

Users will en­joy high- speed In­ter­net con­nec­tions that al­low them to take ad­van­tage of the best that the In­ter­net has to of­fer, from web brows­ing and stream­ing me­dia to con­nected gam­ing.

The Mate 8 also sup­ports Net­work Neigh­bor­hood CIFS stan­dard pro­to­cols and au­to­mat­i­cally dis­cov­ers home wire­less equip­ment such as PC and iMac that sup­port Net­work Neigh­bor­hood CIFS stan­dard pro­to­cols.

This sim­ple process al­lows users to log in to shared fold­ers and di­rectly copy pho­tos and doc­u­ments be­tween mo­bile phones and com­put­ers.

Busi­ness is made con­ve­nient and ef­fi­cient with the Mate’s abil­ity to au­to­mat­i­cally recog­nise and save in­for­ma­tion on scanned busi­ness cards to the phone’s con­tact list. The de­vice fea­tures scan­ning sup­port for 17 lan­guages.

Fur­ther­more, the Mate 8 of­fers a pro­duc­tiv­ity- en­hanc­ing split- screen mode that en­ables en­hanced mul­ti­task­ing be­tween apps.
