Unique Photo-Taking Functions for More Creativity

The Huawei P8max uses a combination of 5+13 mega pixel front and rear cameras. The rear camera Image Signal Processor, with a 13 mega pixel Optical Image Stabilization provides better night view photo-taking. The Huawei P8max’s optical image stablization technology reduces the aperture time 2-3 grades, which ensures brighter and clearer pictures. Additionally, the dual-tone flash effectively brings back true color and creates vivid pictures in dark and dim lighting.

The Huawei P8max offers consumers with the best instrument for art through a light painting function and video filming function that reduces later editing. It also has face-enhancing, Selfie, Pano, and Lapse modes for photo-taking. The large screen of the Huawei P8max enables consumers to create and enjoy the freedom of creating art.

Unlike light painting functions on ordinary phones, the Huawei P8max provides real time preview display and hand controlled aperture of a picture. The device has an Optical Image Stabilization function on the rear camera, which enables great pictures even without a tripod, and the unique Director mode enables consumers to share what they have just filmed. The smartphone can also form a filming group with three other phones, and by switching different views, consumers can make a blockbuster without having to edit.

A New Design Esthetic

The biggest characteristic of the Huawei P8max is the non-cut back of the smartphone with a metal ratio of 94 percent. The entire body of the device is cut from an aerospace grade aluminum block.

The Huawei P8max uses an industry-leading heat dissipation solution to avoid overheating. The smartphone uses the same DX19 high thermal conductivity alloy that’s found in some luxury automobiles; the thermal conductivity coefficient is nine times higher than that of stainless steel, and 3.8 times higher than aluminum – the magnesium alloy used in most phones.

Outstanding Commercial Apps, such as Wireless Projector BlueTooth Printing

The Huawei P8max is equipped with functions such as Blue Tooth Printing, Wireless Projection, and GPS for commercial use, all of which work together to maximize productivity. The Huawei P8max helps users more easily handle e-mails, edit documents and complete other office tasks.

The P8max also offers an optional innovative perforated leather cover with see-through dots that enables the user to view incoming calls and alerts without opening the cover, avoiding the fingerprints and smudges of traditional clear covers. The leather cover also supports standby mode, making it the perfect match for P8max.

There are two versions of the Huawei P8max; local pricing and availability for both the standard and the premium versions of the device will be confirmed in due course.
