Huawei, soon after launching the Huawei Ascend P8 flagship alongside the Huawei Ascend P8max (a large-screen variant), is now gearing up to debut a 'lite' variant of the flagship dubbed Ascend P8lite.

The Chinese company earlier this month launched the Huawei Ascend P8 flagship smartphone alongside the Huawei Ascend P8max. Both dual-SIM Android 5.0 Lollipop-based smartphones feature the company's EmotionUI 3.1 skin on top.
The Huawei Ascend P8 has been announced in two versions, standard (16GB inbuilt storage) and premium (64GB inbuilt storage). While the standard version is priced at EUR 500 (roughly Rs. 33,300), the premium version costs EUR 600 (roughly Rs. 40,000).
The Huawei Ascend P8max, on the other hand, is due to launch in 30 countries and was priced at EUR 550 (Rs. 36,700) for its 16GB inbuilt storage variant. The phablet will also be available in a 64GB inbuilt storage version at EUR 650 (roughly Rs. 43,300).
