Watch Huawei P8 announcement live stream here

The Huawei P8 is about to take over as the new flagship of Huawei, one of the largest phone makers with a global footprint and Chinese origins.

The company will livestream the Huawei P8 announcement (it has dropped the Ascend name from the title and it's just P8 this time around), so you can tune in and watch the event as it unfolds.

The big launch will be under the 'Revamp the possibilities of light' motto, a hint towards a better display and/or camera on the new phone.

The Huawei P8 is expected to come with a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution. Under the hood it is said to feature octa-core Kirin 935 system chip, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage that should be expandable via microSD cards. The P8 is also expected to come with a 13-megapixel main, rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera.

The Huawei P8 announcement event starts at 7am PT | 10am ET

cant wait to see the benchmarks for this phone. the kirin 920 was a beast. the 935 should be a lot better. im expecting great benchmark scores from the p8 especially since the phone only has a full hd(1080) display and not qhd(1440). I know benchmarks aren't everything but i still like them lol.

Well Kirin 920 score 40-44k, so score of 50k is possible. Only concern is if Huawei chose not to push that much due to battery and heating concerns.

Yea it will get a better score than 50k the kirin925 in the honor 6 pluss scores 44-47k. I think they'll push it to a 50k plus score. They just need to put in a good gpu this time cause the honor phones have a crap gpu.

If Huawei P8 is good after reviews, this is going to be the first time I'm going to buy a Kirin-based handset. I'm impressed with the leaked specs so I'm already forgetting that S6 and M9 happened.

Looking forward to this, looks great from the leaks but lets hope the Kirin 935 is beastly to match!
