Huawei’s momentum shows now sign of slowing with news that the much anticipated Huawei P8 could be released in early April.

Huawei are looking to shake up their flagship Ascend line, first of all by dropping the “Ascend” branding, and then launching a top-of-the-range model to carry the brand in to 2015.

The simply named Huawei P8 will be the replacement to the P7, and from sources close to the company might be a 5.2-inch phone with 1920 x 1080 display. A FHD panel on a flagship phone might sound a little last generation, but upping the resolution to 2K would be deemed pointless on such a compact display.

That seems to be the only firm detail in the rumours so far, but there is a possibility that two version of the P8 might be released. The base Huawei P8 would have a Kirin 930 chip with 3GB RAM while the high-end P8 (Pro?) will get a Kirin 950 with 4GB RAM.

Initial rumours were that Huawei would release the phone at MWC but new details suggest an April 8th release date.
