Huawei P8 Singapore

Huawei P8 Singapore - Design inspired by leather-bound book binding

Huawei is constantly innovating to deliver fresh and exciting features to their smartphones, both for the design standpoint as well as in the technical standpoints. Taking inspiration from the classic handcrafted books that were bound by leather, the P8 combines retrospective designs with modern technology to bring out the best of both world.

The Huawei P8 is crafted out of a single piece of metal unibody aluminium that brings great form and functionality in the form of a great smartphone model. Huawei passionately calls this a harmonious work of art. The smartphone is also only 6.4 millimeters thing – it will slide into your pockets and bags with no problems, and it will not cause an unsightly bulge in your pants pocket.

Huawei P8 Singapore - A Camera that does More

Smartphone cameras are the go-to for capturing images or memories these days – gone are the days where smartphone cameras were just last-resort measures for when your camera isn't available. The Huawei P8 packs an incredible 13 megapixel rear-facing camera (four color RGBW sensor) that is backed by OIS (optical image stabilization) and a DSLR-level Image Signal Processor with a lens aperture of f/2.0. It also has dual-tone color flash that helps to enhance your shots in low-light environments; it gives better natural-lighting compared to most overpowering camera flash.

It is a very fast camera that is able to capture a lot more with features that also help you to express your personality in the photographs you take. Light Painting mode slows down the shutter speed of the camera so that you can paint with any light source to create unique and amazing images. Time-lapse mode lets you capture an entire scene as the weather and time changes. And of course, the ever present Perfect Selfie mode that helps to keep all of your selfies beautiful, constantly.

Huawei P8 Singapore - A whole new level of Performance

The Huawei P8 is powered by Huawei's own in-house developed Kirin 930 octa-core 64-bit chipset. Kirin's very own in-house chipsets have often bee commended for their great performance and efficiency, and the one in the P8 is no different. It is very efficient and delivers optimal performance with very little power usage.

All of this great features are placed into an incredibly slim smartphone; the Huawei P8 is a great smartphone that does a lot in a minimalistic form factor.
