Huawei P8 is definitely the most talked about device by Huawei as of late. This thing has been leaking all over the internet for weeks now, we’ve seen a ton of specification rumors, device leaks, assumptions, etc. The most important part however, was the confirmation that the device will launch on April 15 in London, this confirmation came from Huawei’s Director of Marketing Communications. A mysterious Huawei handset paid a visit to Geekbench recently, and it seems like this is the P8 smartphone. This time around we have a new rumor to share with you, which reveals the alleged pricing of this handset.

According to the newest info, the Huawei P8 will cost less than 3,000 Yuan, 2,999 Yuan is the quite probable pricing for this device, if this rumor is to be believed that is. This pricing actually sounds quite probable, even though I still hope that Huawei will price this thing lower than this. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s see what previous rumors said about this device’s specifications, take this with a pinch of salt, as always, these are just rumors after all.

If rumors are to be believed, the Huawei P8 will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and a 2,600mAh battery. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 925 or 930 processor will power on this thing and the device is said to be about 7mm thick. 13-megapixel camera is expected to be located at the back of this handset, and you probably won’t be seeing a fingerprint scanner as part of this package. We’ll probably see glass panels on both front and the back side of this device though. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop was also mentioned in some rumors, but who knows.

The only thing that is certain at this point is the fact that this thing will launch on April 15 in London, in other words, Huawei won’t announce this handset at MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona this March. Those of you who are interested in this smartphone will have to wait a bit longer in order for Huawei to unveil it.
