Next year, perhaps even during the forthcoming CES, Huawei will unveil the Ascend P8, its next mid-range flagship device.
Thanks to the French site NowhereElse.fr, we’re glad to report about what kind of hardware this device will pack under its fancy hood:
- 5.2-inch full HD screen
- HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core chipset built on TSMC’s 16nm process
- LTE connectivity (in some markets)
- Camera with single-LED flash (13MP?)
- Metal chassis
- Expandable storage (with microSD cards)
We don’t have all the details just yet, but we do expect one fancy phone from Huawei. Perhaps, the Chinese firm decides to include sapphire glass display as a standard option and not just on the special version (like that was the case with Ascend P7).
Pricing is also unknown at this stage, but we doubt the P8 will be one of those super-affordable handsets. Rather, Huawei said it wants to go for the mid- and high-ends of the market and will price its product(s) accordingly.
So, who’s waiting to buy one of these?
