Huawei P8 and P8 Lite press shots leak out, along with specs and a premium feeling
The Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Lite are both expected to be unveiled on April 15th in London. The latest specs we get now, have the Huawei P8 carrying a 5.2" 1080p display, Kirin 930 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage that can be expanded with the use of the available microSD slot. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13 MP and 8 MP, respectively, and a 2520 mAh battery should keep the lights on. There is support for 4G dual SIM dual standby as well, as with any self-respecting Chinese flagship these days.

As for the P8 Lite, it will allegedly be a way more modest endeavor, with a 5" 720p display, 1.2 GHz Kirin 620 processor, 2 GB RAM, and 16 gigs of storage. The camera setup will differ, swapping the 8 MP selfie cam for a 5 MP one, while the "lite" version clock in very compact, at 143 x 70.6 x 7.7mm, and 132 grams of weight. The battery shrinkage brings it down to 2200 mAh.

The P8 will be 6.4mm thin and feature a metal and glass body. The price is expected to be the equivalent of $480 USD. There is speculation about a more expensive version of the phone, the Platinum Edition, which is rumored to be priced at over $800 USD. This model will allegedly come with sapphire glass on the front and back of the handset.
How exactly will these bodies look apart from teasers and TENAA schematics? Well, the alleged press renders for both the Huawei P8 and P8 Lite have leaked out, so you can judge for yourself below - they look every bit as premium as the current representative of the P-line. What do you think?

Certainly inspired by Sony, Apple and HTC. Image 2 has the m9 style, and image 5 the iPhone 5 style. Battery is disappointing, only a 20mAh increase from P7.

Why is so difficult for the manufacturers to make the right smartphone, looks like there is always one lack of things or two that let the phone out of perfection, I just one a GOOD battery, no matter if the phone is not 6mm thin, 1080p for better performance in games, not qhd or uhd please, sd card slot, 32 gb rom minimum, top notch specs, removable battery, I don't mind if the phone is made of plastic if looks good, mhl or slim port capable.....but everyone is just trying to sell to us just good looking devices with lots of lacks and compromises like the ridiculous qhd display and his effects in games....

So the lite one 5" is a compact size at 143x70.6
then Sharp Aquos Crystal 5" at 131x67 is smaller!
( 5" screen only = 110.7x62.3 )
