Huawei’s upcoming flagship, the Huawei P8, is going to launch on April 15th in London. We’ve seen a ton of leaks and rumors regarding this device thus far, including a number of official teasers by the company. Huawei has released an official teaser video yesterday entitled “Capture The Wonder Of Light”. The video wasn’t exactly revealing as far as the device’s looks or features go, but it did hint that a really capable camera is on the way, well, kind off. There were a few hints in the video itself, and the whole theme of the video kind of hints at an OIS camera which will offer great low-light performance.

That being said, the “P8” page is now live on the company’s official webpage. The teaser video is listed there along with some details about the launch of this handset. The listing says that the launch event will kick off at 3PM BST (British Standard Time) on April 15th in London. Huawei will livestream the event on their official YouTube channel, and even the location of the event itself is listed on this page (source link down below). This is yet another teaser by Huawei in a way, the company has also listed the following caption “Ignite The Night With 7 Colors Of The Rainbow”. This could be yet another camera teaser, or perhaps a hint that the device will be available in a range of colors, which is not that likely. Either way, the event is only a week away, so stay tuned for that.

The Huawei P8 will quite probably feature very thin bezels on the sides, and the device has already been certified by TENAA in China, so we basically know its specs. This handset will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Huawei’s very own HiSilicon Kirin 930 or Kirin 935 SoC will power on this device. The Kirin 930 will be included according to TENAA, but some reports which arrived a couple of days ago claim that the company will opt for the Kirin 935 instead. This device will also ship with a 13-megapixel camera on its back and Android 5.0 Lollipop will come pre-installed here with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top of it. You’ll also be able to take advantage of 4G LTE connectivity which will be available on the Huawei P8. Fingerprint scanner has also been mentioned several times now, and you can expect premium build quality here as well.
