Huawei’s definitely set to unveil the Ascend P8 soon

Looks like the device’s all about having a better battery life

MWC 2015 was home to the unveiling of many devices, including Huawei’s new smartwatch, the Huawei Watch. But it seems like the Chinese multi-national company has been pacing out the reveal of its tech goods.

Why do we say that? Because it’s just released a teaser image for what looks to be the Huawei P8. Leaks and rumours of this device have been making their rounds over the past few weeks, so we were quite surprised when it didn’t rear its head at the trade show.

But we won’t blame Huawei – going up against some of the other bigger names such as HTC or Samsung might have taken the Huawei P8 off the limelight it deserved.

This teaser image, which was posted on Weibo, shows a massive numerical ‘8’ emblazoned across the poster. In addition to that, an image of a fully charged battery is situated on one of the corners, with some light shining on it.

One can only assume that this signifies that the Huawei P8 will have a better battery life as compared to its predecessor, the Ascend P7. The teaser doesn’t give off much else except that it’s coming in April.

Although, previous speculations have suggested what the smartphone might boast. For now, you can expect a 5.2in Full HD screen and a slim ceramic uni-body. Along with that, you might find an-house Kirin 930 chipset (which you saw on the Huawei MediaPad X2), 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP snapper. 

But just like all other rumours, until official details are released (presumably in April), take what you read with a pinch of salt.
