We have heard plenty about Huawei's next flagship the P8, a sequel to the Ascend P7 with the company opting to drop the Ascend branding. The company has now announced that the handset will be announced on April 15th at a special event in London. Huawei said that it would start selling smartphones in the United States officially this year, so could the P8 be the first flagship widely available from the company in the U.S.?The new smartphone recently passed through TENNA, the Chinese version of the FCC that certifies products for sale. The body listed six different variants of the P8, the HUAWEI ALE-TL00, HUAWEI GRA-UL00, HUAWEI GRA-UL10, HUAWEI GRA-CL10, HUAWEI GRA-TL00 and the HUAWEI GRA-CL00. All are essentially the same device apart from three of them being carrier variants with specific LTE 4G connections. We broke the news two weeks ago that the Huawei P8 will be launched on April 15th and the handset is likely to roll out in China first. The P8 will come with a 52.-inch 1080p screen, the company's in house 64-bit octa-core Kirin 930 chip, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on board storage, and a micro SD card slot. Other specs could include a fingerprint scanner in the home button, a dual camera with a 13 megapixel lens, and a 2600mAh battery. The mooted Chinese price is said to be $480, but if the P8 does come to other regions it will probably cost similar to other flagships, which unfortunately means it will be more expensive.
