Huawei has announced three ‘P8’ devices thus far this year, the Huawei P8, P8 Lite and P8Max. The Huawei P8 is the company’s flagship smartphone, P8 Lite is a mid-ranger, while the P8Max is the most powerful phablet in Huawei’s lineup. All three of these devices were announced back in April, and some are even available for purchase in select regions. That being said, Huawei has officially teased the arrival of their new phablet, read on.
The company has released a rather interesting teaser on their official Weibo (Chinese social network) account, an image which shows the Tyrannosaurus Rex coming out of the P8Max. Anyhow, the company has announced that the Huawei P8Max will be arriving in China on June 24. The Huawei P8Max features a huge 6.8-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) LTPS LCD display along with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 64GB). This handset is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 935 octa-core processor along with a Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. The 13-megapixel OIS camera is located on the back of this phablet, and flanked by a dual-LED, dual tone flash. On the front side of the device you’ll find a 5-megapixel snapper, and a 4,360mAh battery is also a part of this package. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this phablet with Huawei’s Emotion UI installed on top of it. This is a dual-SIM handset which offers 4G LTE connectivity. The device offers premium build, and is rather huge, though you can’t exactly expect it to be compact when it sports such a huge display. The P8Max measures 182.7 x 93 x 6.8mm, while it weighs 228 grams.
The Huawei P8Max will be available in Luxurious Gold, Mystic Champagne and Titanium Grey color options. We’re still not sure how much will this thing cost though, but according to reports from China, you can expect it to cost somewhere between 3500 and 4288 Yuan. This handset is going to be more expensive than the Huawei P8, though that was to be expected. There you have it folks, the P8Max release is just around the corner, the device will be available released before the end of this month.
