Earlier this week, we did bring you word that Huawei could be considering the removal of the word “Ascend” from its range of smartphones down the road. In other words, the existing flagship device, the Huawei Ascend P7, might very well see a replacement in the future which will simply be known as the Huawei P8, rather than the Huawei Ascend P8.
This particular upcoming flagship is said to come with a 5.2” display that has a resolution count of 1080 x 1920 pixels, running on Huawei’s very own octa-core Kirin 930 chipset, accompanied by 3GB RAM underneath the hood. Of course, there will also be the presence of a fingerprint scanner that allows it to keep up with the times, while a metal chassis ought to make it look extremely desirable.
It seems that we have received word from China that the upcoming Huawei P8 will not see a release at Mobile World Congress that is happening later this year in Barcelona, Spain, but rather, it could make its debut on an April 8th later this year. The particular handset is also tipped to retail for $483 after conversion. What do you think of this particular move, especially when it concerns the naming convention of the device?
