p8-mediaHuawei have just unveiled the new P8 at a media event in London.

The “Ascend” brand has been removed from the P8, which I personally prefer – the shorter the name, the better (as easier to type).

As you can clearly see, Huawei have put a lot of effort into the design, including the packaging.

They are trying to appeal to a wider audience. Huawei says its for those who “pursue high fashion and the latest design trends”.

A more detailed story will appear on Vodacom Now tomorrow. In the mean time, here are some photos of the 5.2″ device.
