Weibo account leaks information about the Huawei P8

The Huawei P8 is expected to miss the flight to Barcelona for MWC 2015 next month. Instead, the handset will board a plane to London for its unveiling on April 15th. On Sunday, a posting on Chinese social media site Weibo revealed information about the handset including a price and some specs.

According to the post, the Huawei P8 will feature a zirconium oxide porcelain uni-body design. The double sided glass will most likely carry the protection of Gorilla Glass 3. The P8 will be powered by a home-grown octa-core Kirin 930 SoC produced using the 16nm process. The Kirin 930 could be the first chipset in the industry to use this process. The Apple A8 and A8X both employ a 20nm process as does the Snapdragon 810.

The battery specs seem to be light as a 2600mAh cell will keep the lights on. But the HTC One (M8) proves that optimizing a 2600mAh battery can produce long battery life. And at 6mm, the P8 will be slimmer than the Apple iPhone 6 (6.9mm thin). According to the Weibo post, the phone will be priced at the equivalent of $480.

Other previously leaked specs for the Huawei P8 produce a more complete vision of the phone including a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, 3GB of RAM and a 13MP rear camera with OIS. The manufacturer had the fourth largest global share of the smartphone market in the fourth quarter according to Strategy Analytics, and is battling a surging Xiaomi to keep that position. Lenovo-Motorola claimed the third spot according to the researcher.

Just buy a battery case or something. The added bulk will just make it have a normal thickness.

So HiSilicon managed to get TSMC to build their Kirin 930 with their 16nm FinFET process
But Qualcomm just settled with TSMC building their 810 on TSMC's older 20nm planar process
This year seems like its going to be another disappointing year from Qualcomm

I support Huawei, their main problem lies in there update cycle, I do not know why they push this EMUI and its iOS-like interface. They should of sticked to the stock Android vibe like the Ascend P1
