The sleek design combines comfort and ease of use, with the beveled body measuring a mere 6.4mm in height and weighing only 144g and will cost UGX 1.7 million. According to Huawei, the phone caters to the fashion conscious consumers. The Huawei P8 is available in silver, gold, black and grey. This was announced on Huawei Uganda’s Facebook Page as shown below.
It comes with a 5.2’’ full HD display with a 1080p resolution for that immersive screen experience. The phone runs the latest Android Lollipop 5.0Twith Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.0 (EMUI) user interface (UI) to distinguish its self from the Android pack of OEMs. The UI on the P8 features a bold design that is responsive and allows for quick ways to view and respond to messages directly from the locked screen.
All these features and functionality are powered by Huawei’s home brewed Kirin 930 Octa-Core 64-bit chipset, delivering outstanding performance that outpaces the smart phone market by 20 percent. The 2680mAh battery and offers 24 hours of standby power when only 10 percent battery power remains. This has been achieved by also applying Huawei’s unique battery management technology that includes features such as balancing brightness and energy consumption that provides 20 percent higher efficiency than comparative phones. The P8 is available with either 16GB or 64GB on-board memory, which can be supplemented with a micro SD card up to 128GB that fits into the dual SIM slot that alternatively accepts a second SIM card.
The Huawei P8 is optimized for 4G/LTE data connections as well as enhanced network roaming – which is performed nearly three times faster than competitor phone models. By the same token, voice quality has been given a boost with Huawei’s Signal+ technology that provides seamless network connectivity, even when users are travelling on a train at a speed of up to 300 kilometers per hour.
