In our study of what Huawei phones ‘made’ it in Zambia, we found that the majority of people went for the really low budget handsets that were not smart at all.
However, Huawei upped its game and now has some brilliant devices out there, like the Ascend P6 and Ascend P7. Yes, you’ve seen the billboards. No, you didn’t buy it, did you?
Well, you might rethink your anti-Huawei-nism and get a device from them. The new P8 which this time around doesn’t have the ‘Ascend‘ name on it, is worth the stars we’re giving it. Guess what, it also comes as a phablet, called the P8Max.
It has a very sleek look to it, very aluminium covered, and is light (why does it look so eerily similar to the iPhone 6 though?).
Anyway, more features of the phone and phablet are:
|Huawei P8||Huawei P8Max|
|Dimensions||144.9 x 72.1 x 6.4 mm||182.7 x 93 x 6.8 mm|
|Weight||144 g||228 g|
|Screen Resolution||1080 x 1920 pixels||1080 x 1920 pixels|
|Screen Size||5.2 inches||6.8 inches|
|Battery size (non-removable)||2680 mAh||4360 mAh|
|RAM||3 GB||3 GB|
|Internal Memory||16/64 variants||64 GB|
|Operating system||Android 5.0 (Lollipop)||Android 5.0 (Lollipop)|
|SIM||Dual SIM (one micro, one nano)||Dual SIM (one micro, one nano)|
|CPU||Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53||Quad-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53|
|Camera||13 MP back, 8 MP front||13 MP back, 5 MP front|
|Price||Not yet available||Not yet available|
The P8 may have a better front camera and weighs less than the P8Max, but the P8Max has a better CPU, and a bigger battery as expected of a phablet.
The Huawei P8 should be released by next month, May 2015 so once we have the actual price and it’s availability details, we’ll pass them right on.
