PhoneArena says it has received a document that claims to show Huawei's smartphone roadmap for next year, showing the roster of devices added to the company's portfolio in 2015.There are some good things to look forward to as well, such as the sequel to the Ascend Mate 7, the Ascend Mate 8, a handset that will land during the third quarter of 2015 and will arrive with a cost of $650, a new Kirin 930 processor, and a 2k resolution display. The Ascend D8 will also land with a 2K panel pasted on the front. Other specs for this device include a 5.5-inch screen and will also boast a 64-bit Kirin 950 chipset, a massive 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage. A true flagship heavyweight it seems, and one that will be arriving in May and will cost a massive $800, although as this is Huawei we are unsure whether it or any of the handsets here will ever make it to the USA or Europe. We have already heard about a new Ascend P8 earlier in the week, the follow up to this year's Ascend P7, which also had a sapphire screen edition launched in China recently The Ascend P8 is reported to land at the CES Las Vegas event in January and will boast a 5-inch 1080p Full HD screen, a Kirin 930 chip coupled with 3GB or RAM and a price of $490. Other devices pencilled in for a launch are the Ascend 5, 5X, 7 and 7X. These devices will range in quality, price, and specs from 1080p HD screens to more affordable stuff like the $115 Ascend 5 with a 5-inch 720p screen. Huawei has a solid reputation building for making good looking devices with blazing specs, so we hope these device can follow that trend heading in to 2015, and maybe the company can finally crack the software front as well. source: PhoneArena
