Huawei has started rolling out the Official version of Huawei P8 Marshmallow update, Which are getting to many users as of now only for Europe users. The update brings all the marshmallow features such as application permission, doze mode and etc.
This update also renews the Security patch level of the terminal, This firmware update is based upon EMUI 4.0.1 and is only available for GRA-L09 variants. Though if happen to have the phone and haven’t got the update yet, You can do it manually which we will show you below on how to do it.
The Huawei P8 was the new flagship of the Chinese company in 2015, the most representative model of its catalog of smartphones. Unlike the Ascend P7, the new model offers a unibody housing designed entirely in aluminum. The shapes vary slightly in the sides and corners, now more softened. As for the thickness of the equipment, the manufacturer opts again for a thickness below seven millimeters (6.4 millimeters). Within the technical section, it is worth mentioning the introduction of a 5.2-inch FullHD screen.
The Chinese maintain their philosophy of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and leave QHD displays aside. The performance of the equipment is given by a proprietary processor, a HiSilicon Kirim 930, a SoC with eight cores that will work individually or collectively at a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz and that also includes a proprietary modem that offers global LTE connectivity. Within the performance section also highlights the presence of a 3GB RAM module. The storage system is completed with 16 GB ROM (64GB version) and support for microSD cards up to 128 GB.
In the multimedia part, we find a Sony IMX278 sensor with a resolution of 13 megapixels where its main novelty is the introduction of an optical image stabilizer system with the ability to record FullHD video. On the front, we have a second camera that raises its resolution to eight megapixels. The autonomy of the Huawei P8 will be determined by a battery of lithium polymers with a capacity of 2,600 mAh. Regarding the software, Huawei includes in its new model the renewed Huawei Emotion IU graphics layer in addition to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
