Huawei was one of the biggest surprises in 2014, this Chinese smartphone manufacturer released a couple of really compelling products, like the Ascend P7 and Ascend Mate 7. The company put a lot of effort into delivering great hardware and has also revamped their Emotion UI Android skin, which resulted in a really positive experience here, on both the software and the hardware side of things. We haven’t heard much from Huawei in 2015, but it seems like the company is cooking something up.
According to the latest report from China, Huawei is working hard in order to produce Ascend P7’s successor, the P8. This device will lose the “Ascend” branding though, as will all Huawei devices it seems, this is the second report that claims that will happen. The company has already stopped using the “Ascend” branding in their official documents and yesterday’s report confirmed that the company won’t be using that branding anymore. This device will be called simply Huawei P8, which is a good thing if you ask me.
Anyhow, the report claims that the device will sport a beautiful design and that it will be really thin, I just hope not too thin. This thing is expected to feature a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display (2.5D glass), 3GB of RAM for your multitasking needs and various storage options, of course. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core processor is expected to power this thing on, and a fingerprint scanner will reportedly also going to be included. The device is expected to make an appearance in March on MWC, even though the P7 launched in May last year. The device won’t debut before April though, at least according to this report.
It seems like this handset will be Huawei’s first high-end offering this year, but the company is expected to release a couple more of those by the end of 2015. Huawei Ascend Mate 7’s successor will most certainly get released, the original was really popular, and according to some leaked information, the company will release an ultra high-end D8 handset sometime this year as well. This might be yet another great year for Huawei. Did you have a chance to use either of Huawei’s devices lately?
