We expect Huawei to announce the P8 and the P8 Lite just two days from now during an event that will take place in London and that is actually streaming live. There have been a lot of teasers highlighting some of the phone’s capabilities and also numerous leaks, including pictures and possible specifications, so the phones won’t come up as much of a surprise. Now, there’s been a new leak of the cases for the Huawei P8 and the Huawei P8 Lite.
The one regarding the Huawei P8 shows the actual case for the phone, so we can have an idea of how the overall design will end up looking. What makes it look like it belongs to the company’s new flagship and not the Lite version is the large cutout in the back below the one for the camera, which is supposed to be for a fingerprint sensor located in that position. On the top, some cutouts can be seen for what we assume to be the headphone jack and a microphone or an IR port to control some appliances like TVs. On the bottom, there are three cutouts, two of them will most likely be for the speakers and the one in the middle will be where the micro-USB port is located. Some rumors even suggest that the phone will use the new reversible port with the USB Type C standard. Keep in mind that the final device may not look like the depicted one in the cardboard illustration, at least that’s what the leaked renders suggest.
The leak about the P8 Lite illustrates how the device will look like with the clear case rather than showing the case itself. The design seems to be almost identical to the one of the former phone with the same cutouts similarly located, except for the one of the fingerprint sensor, a feature that is supposed to be absent on this phone. Then again, the illustrations don’t match what we’ve seen of the phone, the back being what changes the most, because the renders and the images we saw in some certifications seem to have a metal back with another material around the camera.
