Huawei P8 allegedly photographed again, a 6.8-inch Max version could be in the making
Huawei is reportedly getting ready to announce a successor to last year's Ascend P7: a new smartphone that should be called Huawei P8. The new handset is expected to be unveiled on April 15 in London, and we may have already seen a few photos that allegedly show it.

Now, two new photos appeared somewhere in China, and one of them suggests that the P8 will be very thin - possibly measuring only 6 mm, thus being a bit thinner than the Ascend P7 (6.5 mm). The other photo reportedly shows the back of the P8. It doesn't look like the handset has a Duo rear camera, but at least we can see what appears to be a dual LED flash. While the regular P8 should sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Huawei could also launch a lite variant with a 720p screen. Moreover, Chinese website CNMO has it that we might also see a Huawei P8 Max with a massive 6.8-inch display (of unknown resolution).

The Ascend P7 was (and still is) a pretty good smartphone, so we're looking forward to seeing what the Huawei P8 will bring.

Why does everyone feel the need to have two bars at the top and bottom of their devices?

This would make a great Nexus if the rumours are true and if media tek has improved.

Why didn't they go all the way to 10" Version? Heck I cannot go beyond the size of a Nexus 6. Note 4's size should be perfect.

Now I am using an 8" fonepad. If it had a good camera I wouldn't be in the search for another huge tablet phone.

If you compare the finger with the phone in the picture 2 .
It's not a 6.8 inch device .
It's a normal 5 inch phone .

For me going to a 6.8 inch screen would be easy since I already use a Sony Xperia Z Ultra with a 6.4 inch screen. But I would be hesitant to buy a completely Chinese designed and built phone after the scandal of Lenovo and Superfish. I am suspicious of what back doors and data collecting mechanisms might be on a Chinese phone.
