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.
