Huawei is known to be active on Weibo revealing and teasing its upcoming products. Under its “Make it Possible” theme the company had teased two new products for MWC 2015 launch. We had predicted that it could be the new smartwatch and the successor of the Mediapad X1 phone tablet. And we were right indeed as the company revealed both the 7-inch Mediapad X2 as well as the beautiful Huawei Watch at the event in Barcelona.
However, the company did not update its smartphone lineup at the event. But to our surprise, earlier today, the company released a new teaser with the words “Huawei P8”. Along with the teaser, the company said the following.
“If March can not give you more surprises, it is better and we look forward to April,”
As you can see, this confirms the launch of the much anticipated Huawei flagship at a special event in April. An earlier leak had predicted this and looks like it was bang on target.
We already know a lot about the upcoming Huawei flagship device. Previous leaks indicate that the Huawei P8 will feature the company’s latest Kirin 930 octa-core 64-bit processor clocked at 2.0 GHz and 3GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. At the front will be a 5.2-inch full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution display along with an 8MP camera on top. The rear camera will be of 13MP with possibly the same duo camera setup as the Honor series. Finally, like all flagship releases this year, the phone is expected to run on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system out of the box.
It is said that the device will be priced around $460 or 2888 Yuan, however, we can’t really confirm any of these information unless Huawei makes the P8 official.
Its already March and we are just a month away from the official launch of the device. So stay tuned for more details.
