Huawei just released the highly anticipated Huawei P8 in China, the first country to receive the successor to the acclaimed Ascend P7. China is where Huawei is based on, so it makes sense that their flagship device is released there first. This was a great move by Huawei as they had an incredibly successful launch day. The Huawei P8 was completely sold out today after being made available for purchase through the online store Vmall, which is owned by Huawei. The retail price is 3588 Chinese Yuan (Or $578.98). Huawei is expected to release the new Huawei P8 sometime in May, meaning that the company’s latest flagship might be yours in less than a month. After going out of stock, Huawei is surely working hard to meet the elevated demand for the Huawei P8, and will most likely be resuming sales as soon as its inventories are refilled.
The Huawei P8 is the best smartphone ever released by the company in terms of specs. The newly released device carries a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 424 PPI, and a full metal body, making it feel a lot sturdier and more premium than it predecessor the Huawei Ascend P7, which only featured a metal rim with a glass back and front. The Huawei P8 only measures 6.4mm, a bit thinner than most flagships today, including the Samsung Galaxy S6. Huawei didn’t make any changes to the device’s camera sensors, the 13MP camera will let you take great pictures with features like OIS (Optical image stabilization) and Face detection; The front facing camera will let the user take 8MP photos.
This new device greatly improves performance over the last installment. The Huawei P8 is powerful smartphone which will let you run any game or app without a hassle thanks to the fact that it boasts an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 processor with a clock speed of 2GHz and 3GB of RAM. With a powerful processor like this, a device also needs a powerful battery, the Huawei P8 features a 2680mAh battery which is not what you would expect from a powerful device like this.
Customers can’t expect the Huawei P8 to have the same popularity as it had in China when it launches in May around the world (The Huawei P8 recently went through the FCC in the United States, confirming a worldwide launch) but the new smartphone will without a doubt be one of the main flagships of the season.
