Huawei launches the Ascend P8 and Ascend P8max


Huawei has launched its flagship smartphone, Ascend P8 alongside its large screen variant, the Ascend P8max.

The 16GB variant of the Ascend P8 will be selling at EUR 500, while the 64GB variant will be available for EUR 600. The device will be launched globally in May.


The Ascend P8max on the other hand is priced at EUR 550 for 16GB variant and EUR 650 for 64GB variant. Both phones come with a metal unibody design made of space-grade aluminium.

The Ascend P8 sports a 5.2 inch full HD display with 1080*1920 pixel resolution and 424ppi. The display uses 78.3 percent of the front panel, as compared to Apple iPhone 6’s 65.8 percent and Samsung Galaxy S6’s 70.8 percent.

It is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Cortex-A53 Hisilicon Kirin 935 SoC clocked at 2GHz paired with 3GB RAM. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.

The device is equipped with a 13MP rear camera which can captures light in RGBW (Red-Green-Blue-White) pattern and has optical image stabilisation. It also has an 8MP front camera.

The device is juiced by a 2680mAh battery. The smartphone measures 144.9×72.1×6.4mm, weighs 144 grams and will be available in Mystic Champagne and Titanium Grey colour variants.

The Ascend P8max on the other hand comes with a larger 6.8 inch full HD display with 1080*1920 pixel resolution and 326ppi. It uses the same processor as the Ascend P8.

The only difference is the 5MP front camera and a huge 4360 mAh battery. It also equips a 7-layer heat conducting structure, which keeps the processor’s temperature lower.
