Huawei’s P8 handset has been leaking for a long time now, we’ve seen all sorts of leaks come our way. The company has confirmed that the device will launch in April, as was reported earlier. Huawei will hold a press event on April 15 in London in order to announce their new flagship handset. The P8 is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display along with 3GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal storage. The company’s very own HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz will power on this thing, and 13 and 8-megapixel camera’s will probably be a part of the package as well. Android 5.0 Lollipop is expected to come pre-installed here with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top of Google’s OS.

That being said, another Huawei-branded handset got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC). The Huawei ALE-UL00 handset actually resembles the Huawei P8’s leaked schematics, which is kind of odd. Is Huawei planning to release a mini version of their upcoming P8 device? Well, it’s possible. Anyhow, according to TENAA, this handset will sport a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 2GB of RAM for your multitasking needs. An unknown octa-core processor which is clocked at 1.2GHz is also listed, same goes for a 13-megapixel rear-facing, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. This phone measures 143 x 70.6 x 7.7mm and will probably also ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop. There are a couple of images of this device in the gallery down below if you’d like to check the out.

It certainly seems like Huawei intends to release a “mini” version of the Ascend P8. This device resembles the P8 a whole lot, at least if the leaked schematics are legit. No matter what Huawei opts to name this handset, we’re looking at a solid mid-ranger. The launch event is still about 20 days away, so there’s still time for additional leaks to surface, which will happen for sure. We’ll let you know if we get any more info regarding either of these handsets, but it seems like Huawei will launch two devices on April 15. Stay tuned.
