The Huawei P8 flagship has just been made available for pre-order in the UK. So far, the Chinese high-end smartphone is exclusive to the iD carrier, a subsidiary to major retailer Carphone Warehouse.
The smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch FullHD display, 13MP/8MP camera combo and Lollipop 5.0 out of the box. Processing power comes from a home-grown Kirin 935 chipset with modified 2.0GHz Cortex-A53e cores in charge of demanding tasks, and regular 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores for efficiency. 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage are also on board.
You can have one for as low £21.50 a month with a year-long contract and no upfront cost. That will get you 300 minutes, 5000 text messages and a 1GB of data traffic. Of course, there’s a myriad of other options to choose from.
Two color versions can be pre-ordered now, and the phone will start shipping and also be available in stores on June 11. Subscribers to other carriers, willing to pick a P8, will need to wait until June 30, when Carphone Warehouse’s exclusivity will expire.
