At a special event which took place today in London, Huawei has announced its newest flagship, the Ascend P8. Along with the 5.2-inch handset, the Chinese company has introduced the P8max phablet, as well, which features a big 6.8-inch screen. And, as you’d expect, the handset comes with a massive 4,360mAh battery which is said to offer over 15 hours of video playback for locally stored files, about 2 days of normal usage, or nearly one and a half days for heavy users.
The P8max comes with the same 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing sensor as the P8. Speaking of the display, Huawei says it’s actually the largest in-cell FHD screen in the world. Let’s have a look at the full specs and features of the device:
- 6.8-inch screen
- 4360 mAh battery
- Kirin 935 chipset with a 64-bit octa-core processor running at up to 2.2GHz
- 3GB RAM and 64GB of on board storage, expandable via microSD
- 6.8mm thick, weighs 228 grams
- Android 5.0 Lollipop, with Huawei’s custom Emotion UI
The P8max will be available in the same 30 markets as the P8, and will cost €549 for the standard 32GB model and €649 for the 64GB version. It will also work with a number of covers, including one made out of perforated leather, similar to HTC’s DotView case.
