Huawei announce the P8 and P8 Max
Over the years Huawei have been making a steady stream of well specified, great looking and well priced devices. Earning them a place near the top of the pile of phone manufacturers. Today we’ve been in London at the launch of their latest devices, the P8 and P8 Max. As you’d expect they’re both a bit of a looker.

Key points about the whole package are…

  • 13 MP RGBW Camera with OIS.
  • One piece aluminium construction.
  • Dual Nano SIM with Micro SD functionality.
  • Enhanced audio quality to reduce background noise.
  • Lollipop.
  • Double click on volume button to capture shots quickly.
  • Fancy camera modes from everything from star tracking to super HDR modes.
  • Enhanced network connectivity.
  • Ridiculously thin at 6.4mm.

Spec wise it’s as follows

  • Processor: HiSilicon Kirin 930/935 64 bit Octo Core chip.
  • Display: 1080p 5.2″ IPS, LCD Gorilla Glass 3, 424 PPI, 1080×1920.

Keep your eyes on the site for a hands on article with the P8, it just a matter of me taking hundreds of pictures and a few videos. In the meantime here are the official release images. I’ll add the link here when it is ready.

You could do worse than checking out our live blog page here which contains a lot of the slides from the presentation.

I’ll be updating this article later with specs on the P8 Max. Which seem to have been missed.

In the meantime salivate over these two images.
