Huawei’s P8 Max with 6.8 inch screen leaks, could arrive soon

Huawei’s P series (earlier known as the Ascend P series) is known for the design than anything else. It has been learnt that Huawei is working on a ‘Max’ version of the P8 (which itself was confirmed some days back), with a rather large screen for a phone.

The leaks show what is believed to be the phone in two angles, and from those pictures, I can tell that the P8 Max is going to be a very slim phone. Also, the edges seem to take cue from the iPhone 6/Samsung Galaxy S6, in the sense that they seem to be rounded.

The last P-series phone from Huawei, the Ascend P7 featured a 6.5mm thin body, upon which the P8 Max is expected to build with a thickness of just 6mm. It’s going to be quite large even for a phablet with a 6.8-inch screen – it hasn’t been long since 7-inch devices were classified as tablets.

The launch of the P8 is expected to take place in under a month, which is when we also expect the P8 Max to be announced. Huawei has been gradually taking a grip on the market, especially since the launch of the Honor 6 which was a truly worthy phone. In fact, the successor — the Honor 6 Plus — didn’t do too bad either, but the P-series is yet to take off in a similar manner.

    I think its fake .
    Just a rumour .
    And the phone in the picture is not from Huawei . It’s from ORION .
    And it’s also not 6.8 inch . Compare the finger with the phone . It’s just a regular 5 inch phone .
    As Huawei sending out teasers saying ‘Huawei Design’ . Huawei P8 should be a premium looking phone . But this doesn’t looks like one .

    Either that’s a giant with a giant thumb or the quoted screen size is off by two inches.

      People being illogical because they don’t want to think further than “I’m right, he’s wrong, let’s make fun of him.”.
