Huawei P8 leaks in promo poster, still missing a fingerprint sensor

Huawei is finding a hard time keeping the upcoming P8 flagship under wraps. The handset went as far as showing up in live images a few days ago and now a promotional poster has been leaked revealing its color options.

Apparently the smartphone will be available in a choice of 4 colors, with black, white, silver and gold models pictured. The black bar on the top of the smartphone’s rear, at least on the gold model, does not look like a particularly stylish design decision though.

The poster is yet another confirmation of the smartphone’s premium build showing the slim 6.6mm profile and extensive use of metal. The smartphone is set to pack a proprietary Kirin 935 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 5.2-inch FullHD display.

What it doesn’t disclose is whether the smartphone will have a fingerprint reader of any sort. Previously leaked cases suggested a rear mounted unit, much like on the Ascend Mate7, but TENAA certification ruled that out and the latest rumor is that the feature will be implemented in the tiny power button on the side.

The Huawei P8 is set to debut tomorrow, so the wait is almost over, and we’ll soon have official word on all the uncertainties in terms of the flagship’s design and features.
