The Huawei P8 was brought up on stage by the company's CEO who wants to ignite "infinite creativity" among users. The new flagship follows in the footsteps of its predecessors with a metal frame and a 6.4mm thick body.
The design focuses on a modern, premium build. It has a full-metal unibody (unlike the metal and glass build of previos models). It takes 810 minutes to craft the body out of aluminum.
The Huawei P8 has bigger 5.2" IPS display though thanks to narrow bezels keeps the phone compact. The screen takes up 78.3% of the front, wasting less space on bezels than the Galaxy S6 and the like.
The camera on the P8 is the first on a phone to use a sensor with four types of sub-pixels - Red, Green, Blue and White. This will help the camera in teh low-light, but the 13MP camera also features optical image stabilization. It can rotate up to 1.6°, double what the iPhone 6 Plus camera manages. Huawei has also included an independent image processor, which it claims is DSLR-quality.
Huawei also made it a point that the camera is flush with the back and called out the iPhone and Galaxy S6 by name. And if you have four friends with a P8 you can snap a single video from four different angles with the Director mode.
The Huawei P8 uses the company's new Signal+ tech. It features two antennas (one on top and one on the bottom) and it can switch between them in just 33.5µs so your calls and data connection are not affected. The phone takes the best out of local networks with Wi-Fi+ which will automatically pick the best Wi-Fi signal....
