Earlier this year Huawei officially announced the Ascend P7 handset which is why it is not hard to believe that Huawei could be potentially working on its successor, the Huawei Ascend P8. Now we can only assume that the handset will be launched next year around the same time as the Ascend P7, or maybe Huawei could take advantage of MWC to make an earlier announcement.
It’s been half a year since Huawei introduced the Ascend P7 to the market, and according to a new report out of China, a successor might be unveiled as early as next year’s CES in the beginning of January. According to MyDrivers, the Ascend P8 is already being tested internally. Their (unverifiable) intel points towards a 5.2-inch display with a standard resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, or a ppi of 424. Allegedly, the panel we’ll be looking at is of the 2.5D type – those are tapered off at the edges like on the iPhone 6 – and will be supplied by an unknown Taiwanese manufacturer.
