Today Huawei will unveil its next flagship smartphone at an event in London, and we'll be covering it live.

At the London launch event, the Chiense manufacturer is expected to launch the Ascend P8, the latest in its line of high-end Android phones. We're expecting Huawei to build on recent premium offerings like the Honor 6+ and Ascend Mate 7 by packing some of these phones' standout features into a smaller chassis.

We'll have to wait a little longer to find out what's in store for us, though. The action kicks off at 3pm London time — that's 10am EDT, or 7am on the West coast. Head past the break for our liveblog and livestream!
