Up until recently, light painting was only possible using a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera – a DSLR and even then, only by skilful photographers who would have taken great time and patience learning the skill.

Enter the audacious cutting edge Huawei P8 smartphone with it revolutionary 13mp camera not only outperforming all other camera phones within its class, but also turning up at the party with a party trick to put all other party tricks in the shade. Literally.

This unparalleled trick is of course, the aforementioned light painting feature on the P8.

For those who per chance, may not know of which new king of the smart phone world we speak, a brief introduction:


The Huawei P8 is a slim and stylish new phone that packs quite the punch in a very elegant body. With a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, and an octa-core Kirin 930 system chip, it's got the silicon, but what it is particularly proud of is it being World’s 1st 4 –colour 13- megapixel RGBW, F2.0 large aperture, 8 megapixel front camera with a flashy new mode that lets you capture light in enchanting new ways.

Continuing the minimalist design of previous generations in the P series, the Huawei P8 embodies the ultimate in elegance, craftsmanship and durability. Highlights include:

The nano-injection molding process results in an industry-leading seamless tight junction connecting a 1.5mm thin plastic bar with one of the industry’s largest screens.

The triple-layer shark-gill design enhances the reliability and robustness of the device, while the body’s sleek back cover is constructed of steel, for reinforced structural rigidity.

However, it is the P8’s ultra-lowlight capable camera and its light painting skills that most captures the imagination.


The Light Painting mode leverages the Huawei P8’s manual camera shutter to capture broad swaths of light. Light Painting mode can capture headlights on cars at night, showing the long streams of light in an artistic photo. Users can also “light paint” their own freehand pictures using a small torchlight in the dark.

Another industry first low light technology is the light check and preview mode. By giving users a preview of what the shot will look like, the device makes it easier to experiment creatively with light sources in the dark.

The Huawei P8’s Director Mode is the industry’s first professional-level video capture function on a smartphone. It allows consumers to direct and control up to three other Android phones when shooting a video scene from four angles simultaneously, and also synchronize video clip editing.

The device introduces a powerful new Selfie mode, which allows preset image enhancement settings to capture and customize users’ unique beauty, enabling even more people to get in on the process.


With these features, the P8 makes a bold statement, putting the rest of the market on high alert – Huawei has taken its rightful place as a trendsetter. And this revolutionary device is only the beginning as Huawei unleashes its unrivalled Research & Development unit on the smart phone market.

No wonder the Senior Marketing Manager, Consumer Business Group, Huawei Nigeria commented saying,“The Huawei P8 takes beauty to the next level, striking a flawless balance of artistry and creativity. Based on a deep understanding of human-machine design, the Huawei P8 delivers a new level of usability for applications impacting everyday life – at work and at play. With craftsmanship that pushes the bounds of possibility and new revolutionary light painting modes, the Huawei P8 provides consumers with an inspiration for creativity”.

The P8 represents choice for consumers, creating value for money otherwise unseen in the highly competitive smart phone market.

And so with the P8, it’s a win-win for Nigerian smartphone buyers and the smartphone powerhouse, Huawei.

Competitors however, must now play catch up.
