Although most manufacturers unveiled their big guns at MWC 2015, some companies like Huawei decided to keep a separate event for its flagship announcement. The company recently confirmed the Huawei P8 event by releasing a teaser on its Weibo page.


Now, the Huawei P8 has finally hit TENAA. This means that we have some real information about this upcoming flagship from Huawei.


According to TENAA, Huawei P8 will come in six different versions, out of which there will be three different carrier versions. The model numbers of all the models as listed on TENAA are as follows: HUAWEI ALE-TL00、HUAWEI GRA-UL00、HUAWEI GRA-UL10、HUAWEI GRA-CL10、HUAWEI GRA-TL00、HUAWEI GRA-CL00. The three carrier version will support dual 4G networks. Also, all the versions will come with MicroSD card slots, dual SIM card dual standby support and Android 5.0 Lollipop OS version.

As expected, the Huawei P8 will have thin side bezels. From the images on TENAA, it looks like the phone is made from a mixture of plastic and metal. You can clearly see the golden metal frame as well as the metal finish at the back. However, there are some areas like the strip around the camera as well as the front, which looks like its made from plastic and then protected by glass.


Interestingly, the power button, volume buttons, microSD slot as well as SIM card slots are all located on the right side of the device. As a result, the left side is completely clean. Up front, the bezels at the bottom of the display looks quite thick, probably for the capacitive buttons. Coming to the back, we can see the camera sensor as well as the dual LED (probably dual tone) flash on top as well as the Huawei branding at the center.

Earlier rumors said that the phone will be just 6mm thin. And from these images, it does look like the phone is going to be slim, although we are not sure if its as thin as said before. The phone will most likely run on the latest chipset from Huawei’s Hisilicon Kirin range, the 64-bit octa-core Kirin 930 with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. There will be a 5.2-inch display sporting a full HD 10802p resolution with Gorilla Glass protection.

A leaked image almost confirmed the 13MP camera at the back. Finally, the phone will run on Android 5.0 version and will retail around 2999 Yuan ($480).

Huawei will officially unveil the flagship on April 14, so we are just 15 days away from getting more details about this exciting new product from the company.

So are you excited about the new P8 flagship?
