Although all our eyes are towards the Huawei Mate 8 flagship which will launch on November 26, its looks like the company is preparing for another smartphone launch, the Huawei P9 Max. This will be the next generation model of the P8 flagship which was announced back in May.
The Huawei P9 Max was recently spotted on AnTuTu featuring high-end specs (model number P950S). According to the benchmark listing, the phone will feature the latest Kirin 950 chipset, probably the second device to use it after Mate 8. Further, there will be 4GB of RAM inside with 64GB of internal storage. This is going to be a true phablet since the listing reveals that the P9 Max will feature a large 6.2-inch display. What’s even more interesting is that the resolution is going to be 2K (2560 x 1600 pixels) which goes against Huawei’s principle of 1080p being enough for smartphone displays. Plus, the phone was running on the latest Android 6.0 OS.
With such high-end benchmarks, the Huawei P9 Max managed to score well above 73,000 points on AnTuTu. But the 3D graphics score was 16,822 points which is below many flagships like the Meizu Pro 5. In fact, you can compare the P9 Max with Kirin 950 and Pro 5 with Exynos 7420 side by side from the images below.
Apart from today’s benchmark leak, previous rumors have said that the Huawei P9 Max will come with dual cameras at the back with a side mounted fingerprint sensor.
