First Huawei P8 camera sample appears, confirming 13 MP rear camera

The Huawei P8 announcement is fast approaching, and with it we are expecting a thin and premium handset, as always with the P-line. 

The word on the street is also that it'll carry a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, an octa-core Kirin 930 processor and 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash and optical stabilization, and 32 gigs of internal storage.

While the OIS module is hard to imagine in what would allegedly be a 6mm chassis with no protrusions on the back, the camera resolution is seemingly confirmed by the claimed first photo sample from the device. The picture is a nighttime time one, which is even better, as it lets us gauge the low-light abilities of said 13 MP shooter. 

We can see some pretty decent results, and there is no light source halo that usually associates with OIS-equipped phones, but we will know for sure what's what when Huawei lifts the veil over the P8 soon.

With a 1080p display and the kirin 930, and whatever mali gpu they use will just be quick. I am not too worried about the gpu they use because I dont play real intensive 3d games so I know I wont be taxing the soc too much which will be fine by me. How does everyone feel about the soc or gpu that they will use

Nice hardware but software support ain't guaranteed with Huawei.
