HUAWEI sends out invites for April 15 event in London, Ascend P8 incoming?
Huawei has begun sending out invitations to a press conference that will be taking place in London on April 15th, which was initially hinted at by HUAWEI back in January. The event will begin at 3pm GMT (11am EDT) and the company is expected to announce its new high-end Ascend P8 smartphone. HUAWEI has launched its previous Ascend P smartphones in Europe.
A dual rear camera rumor also appeared last month, which would allow photographers to re-adjust the focal point of a picture after it has been taken. This feature is similar to what Samsung, HTCand LG have offered in previous handsets. A fingerprint scanner could also feature on the P8. A focus on new build materials is also expected during HUAWEI’s P8 announcement. We’ve previously heard rumors suggesting a metallic frame with a ceramic back and buttons.
The HUAWEI Ascend P8 will supposedly be priced at around ¥2999 ($480), which would easily undercut the current batch of flagship smartphones. We should know more about price, availability and specifications come April 15th.
