Chinese tech giants Huawei has launched its new flagship handset, the P8 in a packed event in London, a smartphone it says is perfect blend of technology, sleek styling, usability and revolutionary low light camera features.

The Huawei P8 is the culmination of the P series’ rich heritage of style and functionality, and Huawei says this will redefine the smartphone market with easy-to-use features that amaze and inspire consumers.

The phone is 6.4mm thin, with dual SIM cards, and works seamlessly with a 4G network. Inside, the new Kirin 930 64-bit Octa-Core chipset boosts performance by approximately 20 percent compared with other phones with similar levels of battery life and a 3GB of RAM

“The goal of Huawei P8 is to become the most user-friendly smartphone for consumers globally” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.

The P8 runs Google’s Android operating system and has a 5.2 inch display screen, slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6 unveiled last

“Through in-depth market research, Huawei has addressed the most pressing pain points for premium smartphone users today. Huawei seamlessly combines the best elements of style and durability in this device, delivering a revolutionary user experience – especially in terms of camera capabilities and network connectivity. Building on the outstanding market performance of Huawei’s P series, we fully believe the Huawei P8 will become one of the most popular smartphones of 2015.”  Yu added.

The P8 smartphone comes with a customised version of Android 5.0 featuring a number of custom widgets including one that lets users create custom user interfaces for specific scenarios, like work and home.

There are two versions of the Huawei P8; the standard device for €499 and the premium version for €599. Huawei says the phones will initially be available in more than 30 countries including China, Columbia, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, South Africa, Turkey, UAE and the United Kingdom.
