Huawei just introduced its latest flagship, the slim, powerfully equipped P8 (no more Ascend). With a sleek metal build and an emphasis on camera performance, Huawei’s hoping the P8 has what it takes to compete against other spring heavyweights like the Galaxy S6 and One M9. And over the next few months, a ton of factors will end up helping to determine the P8’s fortunes, from promotion, to pricing, to simple availability.

As we wait to see how those all will play out, there’s one set of data we can immediately start using to compare the P8 to some of its peers: its hardware components. Let’s take a moment now to go over the technical details that go into making up the Huawei P8.
