Honor had announced to launch its new smartphone Honor 8 on July 11th in China. But today a new device with the model number EDI-DL00 was spotted on TENNA which is expected to be called as Honor V8 Max. The device comes with a huge 6.6-inch display along with other high-end specifications. Recently we have seen Asus and Xiaomi launching the 6.8-inch Zenfone 3 Ultra and 6.44-inch Mi Max phablets, now the Huawei‘s sub-brand Honor is entering the league of phablets.
It features 6.6-inch AMOLED display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the Kirin 950 octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz. The device also includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB via MicroSD card slot. On the camera front, there is a 13MP primary sensor with dual tone LED flash and an 8MP sensor on the front for selfies. It offers dual SIM dual standby and supports 4G LTE with VoLTE.
The device is backed by a 4,400mAh battery that might last at least a day of usage. We also expect it to support fast charging with the 9V/2A power adapter as seen with Honor V8. It measures 178.8 x 90.9 x 7.18 mm and weighs almost 219 grams. From the images, we can find the device to come with a metal build body and is mentioned to be available in Gold and Silver colors. On the rear, there is also a circular fingerprint sensor which might also be used to access the notifications panel and as shutter button in the camera app.
The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with latest EMUI 4.1 overlaid. As of now, there is no information about the name of this device. Since the Honor 8 will be launched on July 11th, we also expect the V8 Max to be launched on that same day.
