Huawei P8 garners 56% more press coverage than its predecessor

Huawei P8 garners 56% more press coverage than its predecessor
The Huawei P8 was introduced in London on April 15th and the event was streamed live to a total of 600,000 people watching it on YouTube and iQIYI. The latter is a video platform in China. Putting the strong interest in the handset into numbers, more than 200 unboxing videos for the model were generated in just two weeks (including ours). Those videos produced 1 million views during that time period. During those 14 days, the P8 won six awards from the European media.

Huawei has computed that the volume of press coverage produced by the P8 launch was 56% higher than the amount of coverage that the Huawei Ascend P7 had produced the previous year. But Huawei says that it expects more coverage of the P8 to take place on May 28th when the phone is unveiled in Bangkok, Thailand along with some wearable devices.

The Huawei P8 features a 5.2-inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. This works out to a pixel density of 424ppi. The home-grown 64-bit Kirin 930 SoC is under the hood featuring an octa-core 2GHz CPU, and the Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside with 16GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can access the 128GB capacity microSD slot. A 13MP camera adorns the back of the phone, and offers OIS and an aperture of f/2.0. The latter allows the camera to take quality photos in low-light conditions. A front-facing 8MP camera takes selfies and handles video chats. A 2680mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with Huawei's EMUI 3.1 skin running on top.


Thanks for the tip!

The Ascend P7 was trash in its class though.

It was a gorgeous phone, only thing it was missing was a better CPU/GPU and better software. It would have killed everything that gen if it had those too. I hope Google uses the P8 as a reference device instead of the Max version.

Hope the P8 max hits the USA. If it is half as good as my Mate2, I'm getting one!

Beauty without brains thats what i think about it. It makes me remember my mediapad x1, first time i saw it on a mall i felt inlove with the design its beautiful like a giant iphone 5, bought it the other day, use it as a replacement for my xperia z but then i installed some very 3d demanding games and it was god awful gpu performance.
