Huawei finally unveiled its flagship P8 smartphone at an event in London on Wednesday, but the company also had an extra surprise: the P8 Max. Both smartphones offer sleek aluminum designs, solid specs and the latest software from both Android and Huawei.
The Huawei P8 packs a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 2680mAh battery, an octa-core Kirin processor clocked at 2.0GHz processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with microSD support up to 128GB. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company’s own Emotion UI 3.1 software and comes in “Mystic Champagne” or “Titanium Grey.”
The new flagship phone starts at €499 euros. There’s also a €599 premium version, which packs 64GB of storage and comes in fancy “Carbon Black” and “Prestige Gold” color options. Both models should be available soon in over 30 countries including China, the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Turkey, Spain, South Africa and Columbia.
Meanwhile, the P8 Max boasts a massive 6.8-inch display and a 4360mAh battery that should easily last two days on a single charge. It also features a modified version of Emotion UI that support landscape mode, packs 32GB of storage and comes with Dual SIM card slots (also optional on the standard P8). The supersized phablet starts at €549, and the company is offering a premium variant for €649.
Overall the Huawei P8 looks like a pretty solid phone. The company also packed a ton of extra features in, including a voice-activated find-my-phone option and the ability to tap the screen with your knuckles.
