Huawei sets an event for April 15, P8 debut likely

18 March, 2015

For a few weeks now, Huawei has been rumored to make the upcoming P8 official at an event on April 15, in London. And today we get confirmation that these rumors were true after all.

The Chinese company has reportedly started sending out press invites for the gathering, including to Dutch websites. The event will take place in London from 3 PM to 4:30 PM local time on March 15.

As you can see, the invite itself doesn't reveal anything about the event's theme, yet it does tell us that a mysterious "it" is coming.

It's pretty clear that this is the P8 it's talking about, so it should finally be announced on this occasion. Huawei has been teasing its next flagship in China for quite a while now, promising us a strong screen, better camera, as well as great battery life.

The company did hold a press conference at MWC too at the beginning of this month, but for whatever reason it chose not to unveil the P8 then, instead giving it its own dedicated event.

Past rumors and leaks had the Huawei P8 coming with a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, a ceramic unibody construction, dual 13 MP cameras on the back, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery. Huawei's own Kirin 930 SoC should be powering things up, sporting an octa-core CPU. The P8 may run Android 5.0 Lollipop.
