Huawei’s P8 Max Pushes Limits With 6.8 Inch Screen

After announcing the P8, Huawei announced what is essentially a larger version of that phone in the P8max, but thankfully didn’t stop there. The P8max certainly has other factors in its favour too.

huawei p8 maxFirst is the screen, which is set at a mammoth 6.8”. Though, it does come with a bit disappointing 1080p resolution, it is made to make use of the resources. The homescreen, for instance, can shift to landscape view while split-screen multi-tasking is supported. Thanks to minimal bezels, there’s a whopping 83% screen-to-body ratio. The phone itself is just 6.8mm thick.

There’s also a new 7 layer heat conducting system which the P8max up to 5 degree cooler than competing phones so the aluminium unibody won’t flare. Under the hood, you get the in-house baked 64-bit octa-core Kirin 935 processor with 3 GB RAM and 16 or 64 GB worth storage. The processor comprises two quad-core Cortex-A53 processors clocked at 2.2 Ghz and 1.5 Ghz, while the storage is expandable via microSD card slot.

The back boasts a 13 megapixel camera with OIS but we don’t know if it’s the same RGBW sensor of its younger sibling. The front also sports a 5 megapixel camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth LE and 4G LTE.

Battery capacity is set at 4,360 mAh. The phone will be released in the coming few days for 550 Euros for the base and 650 Euros for the 64 GB model.

    This phone actually is a good one from huawei and the first one i actually feel like buying. Else these guys juxt make useless n stupid phones.

  • Geekpk

    Their most selling phone 3c honor is still on jelly bean. Huawei cant succeed if they keep poor support of their phones.

  • Faran Qazi

    Huawei’s made impressive affordable phones in the past but they are too lazy with software updates. That’s what’s gonna leave them behind in the competition.

  • I wish, these phones get OTA updates. So people can have better options than nexus series (Nexus 6 is flopped)

    • Aamir Mustafa

      These phones will never get updates

    || “while the storage is expandable via second SIM card slot.”

    Azeem, bhai, I think you meant “MicroSD card slot”. :)

  • Ahmad Khan Sabri

    Huawei may not be compared with samsung etc. It may be compared with Q type

    • With those killer specs, they can be compared with any flagship out there..

  • Atif

    74% screen to body ratio..
    almost same sized, roughly 3mm taller than 6.4″ Z ultra it cant be 84%. ZUltra was 68%.
