In the camera department, it has a 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation, and an 8MP front-facing shooter.
As for the Huawei P8 Lite, it is a lower-end and more affordable variant of the P8. In terms of specification, it features a 5-inch 1280 x 720 display, a Kirin 620 octa-core processor – same one powering the Honor 4C and Honor 4X – paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card up to 128GB), and a 2,200mAh battery. It also has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front snapper.
In terms of operating system, the Huawei P8 and P8 Lite are both running Emotion UI 3.1 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Both devices also feature 4G connectivity and dual-SIM support.
