If sources from China are to be believed, the Huawei Ascend P8 will have a 5.2-inch screen with 1080p display, reports MyDrivers. The spec sheet of the alleged Huawei Ascend P8 recently surfaced online, which, suggests the Ascend P8, much like the Ascend P7, is also a premium-tier of flagship smartphones. It sports a 5.2-inch camera with 1080p screen resolution and pixel density of 424ppi. The display is also said to have a 2.5D tapered edge. The phone is rumored to be powered by a 16nm FinFET Huawei Kirin 930 SoC manufactured by TSMC. Though, it seems unlikely as those processors were reported to not go under production until 2015.

From what we know about its body design so far, the Huawei Ascend P8 employs expensive build materials, including metal body, with a “porcelain texture” back cover, and ceramic buttons. The blurry image also suggests that the phone could be carrying a fingerprint scanner or dual-LED flash setup.
The company is expected to showcase the handset at the Consumer Electronics Show in January next year. The phone is rumored to cost 2,999 CNY ($490).
