High end Huawei D8 could be coming next year with Kirin 960 SoC, 4GB RAM and sapphire glass
Huawei smartphone chief He Gang reportedly said that he wants the company to expand its high-end offerings next year. One device that might help in that cause is the rumored Huawei D8. We first told you about the Android powered D8 in November 2014 when we were tipped to Huawei's 2015 road map. One device listed that did get released was the Huawei Mate 8. The D8, which was included on the map, will now apparently be pushed into 2016.

According to a report published today out of China, the Huawei D8 will offer a 5.5-inch screen, protected by sapphire glass. The display will feature a 1440 x 2560 resolution and be powered by the unannounced Kirin 960 chipset. The handset will come with 4GB of RAM inside. Those specs are close to what the road map called for back in 2014. The only difference is that last year's report had the D8 rockin' the then unannounced Kirin 950 SoC.

Today's report adds that Huawei is looking to surpass the top shelf handsets produced by Samsung. If produced, the Huawei D8 will be priced in the area of 5000 Yuan ($775 USD).

Thanks for the tip!
