Huawei is being a bit cheeky with its promotion of the P8 flagship as it has been revealed that the company is making the landscape bezels thinner than they really are in promotional shots. If you look at the image above you will see an officially Huawei shot of the P8 with very thin landscape bezels, so thin in fact that they are almost non-existent with the powered up screen almost meeting the edge of the device.

The reality is actually a bit different as the P8 actually sports a black band around the screen, similar to HTC's One M9 and indeed many other handsets, you can see this in the image below. Of course, many manufacturers get crafty in how they market devices and of course the renders of handsets are typically changed in some way. However, Huawei has gone to another level and the press shots of the Huawei look like an entirely different product... misleading in the extreme.
