According to the site’s sources, to add to a more premium feel, the Huawei P8 will have Gorilla Glass 3 protection on both the screen and the back panel. As for the frame underneath the glass, the P8 is said to sport a chassis made out of  zirconia ceramics. Like its predecessor, the smartphone is said to be extremely slim measuring at just 6 mm.

It is said to cost ¥2,999 in China, which converts to to around £313. It is expected to make its debut in the UK in April.

Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
