Like its little brother, the P8max has a metal unibody made of aerospace-grade aluminium which needless to say makes it very hardy. Its thickness measures 6.8 mm while under the hood it features a complex 7 layer heat conducting structure which helps the chipset run 5°C cooler than its rivals on the market.
The custom software of the P8max is able to offer split-screen multitasking thanks to the Kirin 935 chipset with 64-bit octa-core processor clocking up to 2.2 GHz running the show. To further confuse people about its classification, the P8 Max's homescreen has a landscape mode just like a tablet.
This 'phablet' is powered by a monstrous 4,360 mAh battery, which will last well over 2 days of regular usage and at least a day and a half of heavy usage according to Huawei themselves.
In terms of covers, the P8max is able to work with a variety of them including one made out of perforated leather which acts similarly to HTC's own DotView cases. Huawei's cases has magnets on them to adjust the phablet for a more comfortable viewing experience.
Huawei's P8max is able to last 15 hours of playback video for all your binge watching needs and it will be loud thanks to its 1W speaker at the bottom.
The Huawei P8max will launch in 30 countries roughly a month after the P8 is released and will cost €550 for the regular version with 16 GB of storage and €650 for the deluxe 64 GB model. They also differ in colors available so be sure to take note.
Like the regular 5.2" flagship, the P8max is a dual-SIM, dual-standby device and its 4G LTE connection can reach up to a whopping 300 Mbps.
