Huawei Launches P8max Smartphone With Obscenely Large 6.8-Inch Display

Does your smartphone have a 5.5 or 5.7-inch screen? That’s amateur hour. Think that you’re the king of the hill with 6-inch Nexus 6? Guess again; that’s mere child’s play. How does 6.8-inches sound to you, because that’s exactly what Huawei is delivering with its new flagship P8max.

That’s right, the P8max is packing in a nearly 7-inch 16:9 display in a device that is just 6.8mm thick. Unfortunately — and somewhat surprisingly — the JDI IPS-Neo display is relegated to a 1920x1080 resolution instead of the QHD resolution that we’re more accustomed to seeing on smaller flagship smartphone that range in size from 5 inches to 6 inches.
