Huawei will announce the Huawei P8 in just a few minutes at a special event taking place in London. Actually, it kicks off at 7AM Pacific (10AM Eastern), so it is starting in less than 30 minutes. I know what you may be wondering – “Why do I care about the Huawei P8?” For a few reasons.
First of all, Huawei is growing incredibly fast and putting out all sorts of quality phones at the moment. They are one of the Chinese manufacturing dominating with low-cost, phones that still pack in the features you need. Most lists have them ranked as either 3 or 4 in the world in terms of smartphone makers.
Remember the Huawei Watch that, outside of the Galaxy S6 and One M9, was the talk of the show at MWC? Yep, they made that. It’s still coming, by the way, so hopefully we hear more on pricing and availability today.
Third, the P8 is their new flagship. While we don’t know if it will come to a US carrier, it should be available at a reasonable price unlocked. Flagships are flagships – this one should be worth a look. Last year’s P7 had a premium build with lots of glass, 1080p display, 13MP/8MP camera combo, and connectivity all over the world.
Finally, there are pretty heavy rumors suggesting that Huawei is going to make a new Nexus. Don’t you want to start familiarizing yourself with them now? That’s what I thought.
The stream starts shortly.
