Huawei has just released the top models of the P9 series and rumors about the next version of the phone have already appeared. The company has announced the P9 and P9 Plus models last week but seems that there will also be a P9 Max with a bigger display and similar hardware. The phone has already been listed in the GFXBench database, so probably will not be long until we’ll hear about it through official ways (channels).
GFXBench listing describes P9 Max as a smartphone with a 6.9’’ display (already entering into tablet class with phone function). Despite the generous dimensions, the display resolution remains Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). The phone is equipped with a Kirin 950 chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz, a small downgrade from Kirin 955 present on P9 and P9 Plus models. Alongside these details, we can also see information about the RAM memory of “only” 3 GB, 32 GB storage and cameras of 8 and 16 megapixels.
Apparently, the optic conducted in partnership with Leica, won’t be present on the new P9 Max, since the dual sensor system isn’t mentioned and the 12-megapixel resolution is not the same either. The operating system remains Android 6.0, equipped with EMUI, Huawei’s proprietary interface. This isn’t the first time when P9 Max emerges, the phone being listed in AnTuTu benchmark a few weeks ago, where it scored 73.759 points, less sensitive than the top phones of the moment. However, the AnTuTu listed version was different because it had 4 GB of RAM.
Probably the P9 Max will be released alongside the modest version, P9 Lite, after the already announced versions, P9 and P9 Plus will hit the market in all regions. Huawei has already started pre-orders for the standard model of P9, with prices starting at $630.
