The Huawei P8 is rumoured to sport Huawei’s Hisilicon Kirin 935 CPU not the Kirin 930 CPU found under the hood of Huawei Mediapad X2. Sadly not much is known about the SoC, until now.
According to Chinese-speaking MyDrivers, the Kirin 935 is an octa-core processor with each core clocked at 2.2 GHz and an enhanced GPU. For reference, the Kirin 930 comes with four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2 GHz. The trade off, however, is said to be battery life, as the new CPU will obviously require more juice to power.
Other rumoured Huawei P8 specs include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (pixel density of 424 ppi), Sony’s IMX278 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), 3 GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is said to measure 144.9 x 71.9 x 6.6 mm. It is said to sport a metal chassis with angled edges. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with Huawei’s Emotion UI slapped on top.
Huawei is expected to lift the lid on the Huawei P8 on the 15th of April in London. The Chinese firm is also expected to announce the Huawei P8 Lite, a scaled down version of its next flagship.
