The new Huawei P8 – a Video-Test: Advance Order at O2 and BASE coming soon
It is “the perfect companion for those who want more than mediocrity”, says the manufacturer. The new Huawei P8 was introduced in London just one hour ago, but the O2 Gurus are already presenting their first video test. Starting mid-May, the new flagship smartphone will be available at O2 and BASE shops and can already be pre-ordered starting two weeks from now. The big surprise: Who orders first will get a posh Android-tablet in addition!
With only 6.4 millimeters the Huawei P8 is extremely slim and one might seriously wonder how the super strong battery with 2.680 mAh even fits into the unibody aluminum casing. The key piece of the new super-slim device, which will be available at O2 und BASE shops in the color scheme champagne, is its strong octacore processor with 64-Bit-technology: The HiSilicon Kirin 930 can use four cores with 2.0 Gigahertz and four more with 1.5 Gigahertz. This guarantees speed even under demanding applications. Additionally, it will be supported by a three Gigabyte of RAM. Huawei P8: Best with O2 Blue All-In L or BASE All this is completed by the fast graphic processor ARM Mali-T628, which plays even demanding content like games or videos smoothly and in high definition. With all those powerful features, it is only natural that the newest technology for mobile data usage is included as well. Through LTE Cat4, up to 150 Megabit per second can be reached, and within the 3G-network, still up to 42 Megabit per second through DC-HSDPA+. The internal memory of the Huawei P8 has 16 Gigabyte and can be extended by up to 128 Gigabyte via microSD™-cards.
Another advantage: Huawei P8s 5.2 inch Full-HD-display is extremely easy to read, which can be attributed to the display technology that was used: color electrodes for In-Plane Switching (IPS) are especially arranged to make the display more readable than those using the usual LCD technology - from every angle. The O2 Gurus are demonstrating this elaborately in their video. The display test begins at minute 2:20. The colors look more vivid and real, too, with IPS. This can easily be detected in the video. Photographers and designers have been using this technology for a long time when it comes to professional image editing. On the IPS-Display, the main camera’s 13-Megapixel pictures look especially beautiful, but also the selfies taken with the 8-Megapixel-front camera are outstanding. The camera on the backside has been improved compared to its predecessor by the way: it has an optical image stabilizer now that compensates diffusions through long light-exposure times and is supported by a double LED flash. Its light is extra bicolored in order not to make faces appear as pale as before, but rather pretty natural. First pre-orders: O2 and BASE give away complementary Android-Tablet Another clou: the brand new director’s mode turns every camera user into a film maker. Up to three additional Android Smartphones can be connected to the Huawei P8 through an integrated app via WiFi-Direct connection. The user decides, just like a real director, which camera perspective will be used. Additionally, the user can send directions to the camera people‘s displays – like in a live show. The joint video can be saved to the Huawei P8 then. In addition to the standard video recording, special features like time laps are available. O2 offers the brand new Huawei P8 together with O2 Blue All-In L for a payoff of only 1 Euro and 45,99 Euro* per month, if ordered online. The versatile tariff includes a flat rate for calls and text messages to all German networks, an internet flat rate with three Gigabyte at full LTE speed of up to 50 Megabit per second and an additional landline number for easy reachability. And of course, the O2 Blue All-In L tariff includes the convenient EU-Roaming Flat that lets you use the received data volume abroad as well. But the best feature is the following: The first online customers will receive a Huawei MediaPad T1 8.0, worth 241 Euros, from O2 and BASE, but only as long as stocks last. Therefore, it is better to order right on the first day and secure the posh LTE tablet! The most convenient feature of the O2 Blue All-in L is, that it comes with an additional multicard. Therefore, the second SIM card can be used for the tablet and the tariff allows mobile surfing with the smartphone and the tablet at the same time. Pre-Ordering starts in early May already.
