[MUSIC] You've seen the Huawei P8 and P8 Max, but this is the first time you've ever seen the P8 Light. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNet, and this is a brand new phone being announced for the US market. Huawei says it's build on a premium design ideal, and it does look pretty good. It's slim. It's got straight sides It's got a white back with a little bit of texturing and and a gold rim around the sides. I think it looks nice. It has a 5" 720p HD display with 13MP camera on the back and 5MP on the front Front, there is LED flash. There are all the capture modes like panorama and HDR, but there's also something called all focus, which is kind of shoot now, pick the focus later. There's also a shortcut to launch the camera even when the screen is locked, by double-clicking the bottom volume marker button. Inside there's a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 615 processor that is octacore. The phone supports LTE. It's got a dual SIM option or single SIM option with a LTE phones. You can use one of those slots for a micro SD card up to 32 GB if you're not using it for the second SIM. Now this is a GFM phone, so it will work with carriers like AT&T and TMobile in the US. Now the phone costs $250 unlocked But Huawei is giving you an option to split that into three-month, six month, or twelve-month payment installments. Now you can buy it directly from Huawei at gethuawei.com or at Amazon starting June 3, followed later by BestBuy and [UNKNOWN]. But right now it's not being announced with a carrier. This is something interesting Waway is going to sweeten the deal and quell all of your fears by offering a two year warranty policy in the US, plus local repair with free shipping both ways and a US base call center that you can call directly from the phone. Phone. This is an interesting approach that Wild Way is taking and one that is hopeful so more phones through its direct channel and also through partner distributors.
