Huawei Ascend P8 image leaks out: metal frame and chamfered edges

The Huawei Ascend P8 is expected to get officially unveiled at a big event in London on April 15th, but an image showing the design of the upcoming device has leaked out and it shows a beautifully crafted phone with a metal frame and an interesting, glazed back coating.

This image of the Ascend P8 comes from the depths of the Chinese rumor mill, and it was dug out by serial leakster of French origins @OnLeaks, so chances are that it is close to authentic. Do keep in mind that this picture portrays a pre-release prototype of the Ascend P8, though, and the final phone might differ.

So far, rumors suggest that the Huawei Ascend P8 will feature the following specs:
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei Emotion UI
  • 5.2-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel display
  • ceramic unibody construction
  • a setup of two 13MP cameras on the back
  • Huawei Kirin 930 SoC with an octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 
  • 2600mAh battery

We are yet to see more of this interesting two-camera setup that should allow for some neat computational photography effects, so do stay tuned.

In all honesty, this is what I was hoping for when I heard the ceramic galaxy s5 rumors. This thing is sexy. Ceramic, graphite, and carbon fiber have always been my choice materials. I just might get this phone as a backup for black tie events.

2600mAH for flagship device with power hungry CPU? I hope they really have a great device.

Samsung use ADVANCE 16nm FinFET, the best AMOLED display, DDR4 and so on. I don't think Huawei can beat that....

DisplayMate disagrees with you. They said AMOLED is superior to LCD.

Not a chance ! Dark oversaturated non realistic colors and yellow whites ? Pleeeese.. IPS - Rules !

Are you going to keep regurgitating BS? Samsung's AMOLEDs have vastly superior color accuracy compared to IPS displays. It's IPS displays that have inaccurate, washed-out colors.

Looks like a very thin phone. Im guessing the camera is going to be some cheap sensor due to the size of the phone. But if they can fit the 2 13mpx sensors without a bulge in the front and rear then more power to them.
