Huawei's purported 2015 lineup leaks out, boasts flagships with 2K displays
We were just sent what is supposedly a table listing Huawei's phone portfolio for the next year, and it includes some pretty intriguing handsets, like the Ascend Mate8 successor to the Mate7, but with a 2K resolution display this time,  new Kirin 930 chipset, and availability in the fall for about $650. 

That's not the only 2K horse in the stable, though, as an Ascend D8, purportedly with a 5.5" screen diagonal, is listed with the high-res panel, too. This one should be the company's absolute flagship next year, as it also features a yet-unannounced 64-bit Kirin 950 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage. It is apparently scheduled to appear in May, and cost the equivalent of $800 when it lands.

A successor to the popular Ascend P7, a P8, will be announced as soon as CES in January, it seems, and sport a 5" 1080p display, the same Kirin 930 chipset as the Mate8, 3 GB of RAM, and a $490 price tag - not too shabby. Later in the year we will see Ascend 5, 5X, 7 and 7X, with 5" or 5.5", HD or 1080p displays, ranging in price from the lowly $115 for the 5" Ascend 5, to $320 for the 7X. All in all, a very promising lineup, and we can't wait to see Huawei's traditionally strong point with these handsets - the thin and premium designs.
