Huawei P8 max will weigh a heavy $610 at debut
If you are weighing in to grab a unit of Huawei’s beastly P8 max once it’s on the menu, you might have to check your wallet again as this device is not turning out as your regular Chinese smartphone in any way.
Huawei sent out a teaser on Wednesday revealing the P8max’s price in China as CNY 3,788. The teaser also outed the release date of the metal Android flagship.
Ask about the price in US dollars, the Huawei P8 max will set you back a whole $610 after it gets released on June 26 (Friday). This price tag is nowhere near that of a regular Samsung or Apple flagship but it wasn’t expected to go all that way up, some sections of the crowd will argue.
But then, what can you say? Huawei, just like other Chinese OEMs, is trying to beat off the “made in China” mentality from its products and the pricing (and accompanying high quality build) seems to them like a good point to start with.
The Huawei P8 max, spec-wise, houses a massive 6.8-inch 1080p display in a 6.8 mm-thin aluminum body. The handset is powered by a Huawei-made HiSilicon Kirin 935 SoC with octa-core CPU (quad-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53), 3GB of RAM, expandable 64GB storage, Mali-T628 MP4 graphics card and 4360mAh battery.
For photography, the smartphone is armed with a 13-megapixel OIS rear camera while a 5MP selfie camera sits at the front. The handset will hit the shelves in Luxurious Gold, Mystic Champagne, Titanium Grey.
