Huawei plans to stop using "Ascend" in smartphone names

Huawei plans to stop using "Ascend" in smartphone namesAccording to a new report, Huawei is planning to drop the Ascend part of its smartphone naming scheme, and will use the combination of one letter and a number. For example, the successor to the Huawei Ascend P7, will be named Huawei P8.

The Huawei P8 is expected to launch in March or April, featuring a 5.2 inch display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, 32GB of internal storage, a fingerprints scanner, and a Huawei built octa-core Kirin 930 processor with 3GB of RAM. The handset is also expected to feature a metal chassis for a premium and rich look.

Another handset which should benefit from the new naming scheme is the Huawei P8, which should be announced in March at the MWC in Barcelona. The Huawei P8 is expected to feature a 5.5 inch display with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution, 64GB of internal storage and a Huawei 64-bit Kirin 950 processor with 4GB of RAM. Expect this flagship to cost around $800 and to be released in May.
