Huawei today announced the Mate 8, a flagship phablet that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Mate 8 features a 6-inch full HD display and Huawei's new processor, the Kirin 950. The 950 is an octa-core chip with four Cortex ARM A72 cores at 2.3GHz and four A53 cores at 1.8GHz. The Kirin 950 is aided by Huawei's i5 coprocessor for low-power tasks, such as managing always-on sensors. Huawei didn't provide details about the Mate 8's camera, but the phone offers some intelligent tools like voice controls, a firewall, a defragmenter, and mobile payment capabilities. The Mate 8 runs Huawei's EMUI 4.0 skin. Huawei said the phone will be revealed in full at CES in January and made available in China during the first quarter of 2016.

I hope this comes to the US

I have the Huawei Accend Mate II and it's been very reliable ( after early problems ) with a huge screen and enormous battery. This would be a great follow-up.

For some reason , major phone manufacturers seem reluctant to make phones larger than 5.7 inches. An upper level , high spec 6 inch+ phone would be nice to see ( with a microSD slot , sorry Nexus6 2014 )
While I think 6 inches is big, there is a market for it, and it should be available. No matter the phone OS you choose, it's not a one size fits all. Right now I use a Note 5 and it doesn't seem so big after using phablets for several years.
