On April 15, Huawei is set to announce the P8, its next flagship smartphone offering. But it looks more and more like we might also be introduced to another device on that occasion.
We’re talking about the P8 Lite, a handset that should keep the general looks of the higher-end P8, but come with lesser specs – and a more affordable price tag, naturally.
Huawei P8 Lite renders
So far we’ve seen the purported P8 Lite getting certified for sale in China by TENAA, and that process resulted in a few low-quality images of the smartphone. Now though we’re treated to what are said to be official press renders for the P8 Lite, which you can see above (click the thumbnails for full size pics).
The renders reportedly originate at an unnamed European distributor working with Huawei. That said, they could also be nothing more than fan-made renders based on those aforementioned TENAA images, there’s no way of knowing right now.
Anyway, as you may have noticed, they show a metal body for the phone, and two color versions – though there may be more of course.
Alongside the pictures, the source of this leak tells us that the P8 Lite will have dual-SIM support and a price tag of 250 (sans contract, obviously).
Based on past info, it could sport a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, and a 5 MP selfie unit. It should launch running Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei’s own Emotion UI on top.
