Huawei P8 sells out on launch day (in China)


While the Huawei P8 won't be released around the world before May, today the handset was launched in China, Huawei's home country. It looks like Chinese customers really like the new smartphone, as this is already sold out. The P8 was made available via Vmall, Huawei's own online shop, costing 3,588 CNY (about $579), and Huawei is likely already getting ready to refill stocks.  

Once it reaches Europe, the P8 will cost €499. We assume its price for the US market should be around $500 (that is, of course, if it's going to be launched Stateside).

At 6.4 mm, the Huawei P8 is thinner than both the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. The handset has an all-metal construction, and, due to the fact that it sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display, it's a bit larger than last year's Huawei P7 (which has a 5-inch 1080p screen).

Running Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei's EMUI 3.1 on top, the P8 is powered by an octa-core 2 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 930 processor. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera with OIS, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, and a 2680 mAh battery.
