Stopping the rumours engine, Huawei has announced its all new P8 smartphone for the price of $530. The device will kickstart its sale campaign first in UK and Europe within this month while US will receive it in the next month.
Going with the trend, the device is given four premium color looks as mystic champagne, titanium grey, gold, and carbon black. Coming at front, it features 5.2inch full HD resolution, which seems to be quite old because of latest trend of quad HD display especially in flagship devices.
Huawei P8 Specs
Android 5.0 Lollipop is powering the device on top of which EMUI 3.1 skin is there, which promise to be smooth, simple and performing, just like any other skin out there. But, its good to see the latest version of Android out of the box.
The main attraction is the unibody premium design, just like last year. The thickness measure is just 6.4mm which is pretty impressive, but it does count 144 grams on a weighing scale, hurting the score card a little bit.
One thing that Huawei managed to achieve is taking care of protruding camera issue which is getting common in every new flagship. So, even with that slim profile, it can rest flat on back.
Last year’s flagship attracted a lot of customers due to its insanely capable front camera and the trend is still being followed. There is an 8MP camera unit in front for selfies with lots of useful software tricks to improve image quality.
At the back, 13MP lens is packed that is said to have world’s first four-color image sensor and an image processor that can help the unit to get some DSLR level of imaging.
Optical Image Stabilization is also the part of rear camera. Dual LED flash is also there at the back to lighten up shots in dark.
Now to manage all these things booting up without any lags, an octa-core CPU is inside along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
The processor is build by Huawei itself (named Kirin 930) and it features four Cortex A53 processors at 2GHz and another four at 1.5GHz clock speed. The storage expansion is also supported, which is again a brave attempt considering the slim profile of the device.
LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC, are all in there along with Dolby Digital Plus technology powering up the loudspeakers.
To ensure enough juice is out there for each of the components to work for long, 2680mAh battery is in there out of user access.
So, what’s your take on this device?
