Report: Huawei P8 to feature slightly more powerful Kirin 935 chipset
Up to now, all the talk about the Huawei P8 mentioned that the device would feature its home grown Kirin 930 CPU under the hood of the handset. On Saturday, a fresh new report states that the device will actually feature the Kirin 935 processor powering the phone. While there is not much information on the Kirin 935, it is believed to feature an octa-core CPU like the 930, but include a new "bumped-up" GPU for graphics.

Since the Kirin 930 includes four Cortex A53 cores and four enhanced A53e cores, there is the possibility that Huawei raised the performance levels on the Kirin 935 to make it more in line with a chip expected to be found inside a flagship device. It also means that the Kirin 935 might be less battery-friendly than the Kirin 930, but those who purchase flagship phones are usually more concerned with getting faster performance out of their handsets. Other Huawei P8 news Saturday morning confirms the use of Sony's IMX278 sensor for the 13MP rear camera.

The Huawei P8 should be unveiled on April 15th during a media even in London. The phone should be ready for launch a week later on April 22nd. We also are supposedly going to see Huawei introduce a smaller, less powerful Huawei P8 Lite during the event, which is taking place a week from this coming Monday.
