Huawei launches Ascend P8 smartphone, P8max phablet

Huawei logoHuawei has launched two smartphones as successors to last years' slimline Ascend P7. The Ascend P8 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display held inside a unibody casing measuring just 6.4mm thick and weighing 144 grams (5 ounces), and is flanked by the phablet-sized P8max with a larger 6.8-inch 1080p screen and a set of similar specifications, but with a thicker 6.8mm and heavier 228g (8 ounces) body.

The P8 runs on Android 5.0 with Huawei's EMUI, with an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 processor using four Cortex A53 2GHz cores and four A53 1.5GHz cores, 3GB of RAM, and a choice of either 16GB or 64GB of storage. On the back is a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, dual color temperature flash, and an f/2.0 lens, with an 8-megapixel version on the front, and power comes from its 2,680mAh battery. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, NFC, and LTE connectivity are also included.

Using a 64-bit HiSilicon Kirin processor with 3GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of expandable storage, the P8max appears to be simply a larger version of the P8. LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS are all present, along with the rear 13-megapixel camera with OIS, autofocus, and flash, but the front camera is a lower-resolution 5-megapixel version, and the battery has been upgraded to a 4,360mAh model.

Huawei is expecting to ship the P8 soon, with the 16GB and premium 64GB models priced at €500 ($535) and €600 ($640) respectively. The P8max should be coming out at the same time, priced at €550 ($590) and €650 ($900) for the 32GB and 64GB storage options. A launch in the United States has yet to be confirmed.
