The Ascend P7, Huawei’s flagship of yesteryear, has found itself a successor. Aptly called the Huawei Ascend P8, it’s thinner, stronger and made of premium metal design.

People are talking about Huawei Ascend P8 mainly on its camera features, and for good reason. For one thing, there’s the new Super Night mode that can capture images in low-light settings and reduce noise. For another, there’s the Director Mode that lets you edit and create videos that’s filmed with up to three extra smartphones in addition to the P8.

Huawei P8 Specs

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 5.2-inch IPS LCD (1080×1920 Full HD), ~424ppi
  • 2.0GHz 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 processor
  • Mali-T628 MP4 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD support up to 128GB
  • 13-megapixel main camera, with autofocus and LED flash
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Dual SIM with dual standby
  • 3G HSPA+, 4G LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou
  • Dimensions: 144.9 x 72.1 x 6.4mm
  • Weight: 144g
  • 2680mAh battery

Another aspect that Huawei Ascend P8 differentiates itself from the rest of the high-end crowd is its dual SIM configuration and microSD expansion up to 128GB. You can only choose one feature at a time though, because you’ll insert one into the secondary SIM card slot that also acts as the microSD card slot.

The Huawei Ascend P8 is scheduled to roll out to more than 100 countries in a two-month timeframe, with initial countries going to receive the device later this month. The 16GB model will cost 499 euros (approx. Php23,700), while the 64GB model is going to cost 599 euros (approx. Php28,500). For cheaper Huawei alternative, check out the SnapTo.
