It’s bizarre to see a smartphone in full glory, only to be then relegated to spotting it with a camouflage case. That’s the case of the Huawei Mate 8, that recently leaked in full glory in hands on shots, only to appear today with a case.

We can still see that camera with a metallic looking area around the lens, plus the dual LED flash and fingerprint scanner at the back. Said back looks like the one of the Huawei Mate S and the unibody metal gray approach is confirmed but the parts we can spot from the case. There’s also a bit of novelty, since the pics are accompanied by info: it would appear that this model is going to cost more than $548 and offer VoLTE support.

The handset is said to offer fast charging, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage on the more powerful model, but there will also be a 3 GB RAM/32 GB storage combo. A 4000 mAh battery should be available, plus a 20 megapixel back camera and obviously the star of the show, the Kirin 950 chipset.
