Vodafone Qatar brings the Huawei P8 to Qatar

There’s no shortage of smartphones using Google’s Android platform, and Vodafone Qatar has you covered with the new Huawei P8. Building on the rich heritage of the P Series, the Huawei P8 strikes a perfect balance of artistry, creativity and functionality.

Taking notes off the design elements of leather-bound handcrafted book binding, the Huawei P8 is a unique smartphone that combines clean, aesthetic lines with innovative technology, beauty and elegance. We even took the P8 for a spin.

Mobile Photo Studio on the go

The Huawei P8 introduces a new philosophy for camera design – a camera optimized for low light and high contrast. Even in the worst lighting conditions, the P8 leverages a combination of hardware, software and proprietary algorithms for capturing beautiful photographs.

Enhanced technology and software provides four professional quality low-light shooting modes, a director mode, and fun creative shooting modes. Further look at the camera feature set includes:



  • Industry-leading Optical Image Stabilizer Technology: phone can shoot high-quality photos and videos as well as managing camera shake so that images are consistently sharp.
  • The world’s first four-color RGBW sensor: Enhancing brightness by 32 percent in high contrast lighting situations, reducing it by 78 percent in low light environments.
  • DSLR-level independent image processor: Enabling noise reduction when shooting, intelligent detection of a high-contrast lighting environment, thus perfectly capturing the high contrast and low light details in one image.
