Huawei P8 detailed as high-end competitor

The next relatively large device to come from Huawei will be the 5.2-inch Huawei P8. This device is coming to the market with Android under the hood and a set of specifications that suggest Huawei aims to take on the Nexus 6, iPhone 6, and Samsung Galaxy S6 internationally. This device is coming to the market in two colors with fantastic names: Mystic Champagne and Titanium Grey. This device will be launched with Android 5.0 right out of the box and works with a set of powerful cameras front and back.

Up front is an 8-megapixel camera for big-time selfies. Around the back is a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and an RGBW sensor. Inside, Huawei suggests this camera works with a "DSLR-level Image Signal Processor," and is capable of 1080p video recording.

The back-facing camera also has a dual-tone color temperature flash and works with Huawei's own camera software suite inside.

This device works with a G-sensor, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, compass, and accelerometer, as well as Wi-Fi 2.4GHz b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1+ LE.

You'll find a slightly unfamiliar face in the place of the processor. Here you've got a Hisilicon Kirin 930, working with 8 CPU cores and 64bit processing clocked in at 2.0GHz. With 3GB of RAM you'll be able to run multiple apps at once, and the device comes with 16GB of internal storage.

This device works with GRA_L09 and GRA_UL00 networks, meaning you'll have GSM and LTE on applicable carriers.

Two version of this device will be released. The standard version will be released for 499 Euro, while the Premium version will cost 599 Euro. The difference is in the internal storage and color casings – 16GB and 64GB for the standard and the premium respectively.

Initial availability will include more than 30 countries this summer, including China, the UK, South Africa, France, Germany, and more.
