Huawei Ascend P8 Lite images leak

With the Huawei Ascend P8 set to be officially unveiled on April 15, images of the handset’s little brother have popped up online.

Dubbed the P8 Lite, the sub-specced spin-off is expected to debut alongside its flagship sibling at a London-based launch event in the coming weeks.

Showing off a handset markedly similar to teased images of the high-end P8, the claimed renders have revealed a slightly stripped back, metal-bodied device.

With a smaller camera lens than past P8 leaks, the prematurely unveiled shots also show a device lacking the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner shown on the mooted Galaxy S6 rival.

With Huawei having yet to formally confirm plans for the phone, the images have surfaced courtesy of serial tech tipster Roland Quandt.

Taking to Twitter to out the device, Quandt accompanied the images with the proud proclamation: “Huawei P8 Lite – these are the first “official” renders from a European distributor. Dual-SIM and a price of 250 Euro.”

The €250 price tag (£183) would see the P8 Lite go head-to-head with the likes of the Moto G and Huawei’s own Ascend G7.

The handset has been shown in both black and silver colour schemes.

A direct follow-on to the 2014-released Huawei Ascend P7, the inbound P8 has been tipped to feature a flurry of high-end components.

From a 5.2-inch, 1080p Full HD display to an improved 13-megapixel primary camera – via Huawei’s own octa-core Kirin 930 chipset – the handset is expected to run the lot.

Specs for the lower end P8 Lite are still unclear.

Stay tuned to TrustedReviews for all the latest on the P8 and P8 Lite ahead of the phones’ April 15 unveiling.
