The enormous Huawei P8max smartphone was introduced back in April. Now, the company has announced the price and release date of the device.

As far as the Huawei P8max price is concerned, reports from China say, the handset will set the buyers back by 3,788 yuan, roughly the equivalent of $610. The unit is due to be released on June 26.

Speaking of key Huawei P8max specifications, Phone Arena says, the device will feature a killer 6.8-inch display, packed with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. Inside, the handset is reportedly powered by a 64-bit, octa-core (HiSilicon Kirin 935) processor, clocked at up to 2GHz and Mali-T628 MP4 will apparently govern the graphics side. Plus, this phone will be backed by a generous 3GB of RAM. On the software front, the handset will run on Android v5.0.2 Lollipop straight out of the box, says GSM Arena.

When it comes to memory configuration, the Huawei P8max will apparently come equipped with 64GB of built-in storage capacity. Furthermore, the handset will sport a 13 MP rear-facing camera unit, in addition to a good 5MP front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats. Lastly, the entire configuration will be held together and powered by a crazy 4,360 mAh battery unit, guaranteeing excellent battery life. 

The case for the P8max of Huawei Telecom reportedly resembles HTC's Dot View case. Speaking of design, Huawei has apparently made sure that the inclusion of a bigger battery does not affect the thickness of the device. As a result, this handset is slender at 6.8 mm. In any case, readers should note that the tech giant has not announced the release date of the device outside of China yet.

On the other hand, Huawei recently announced that the tech giant has reportedly shipped 50 million smartphones in the first half of 2015. This figure points to a gain of 46 percent when compared to last year's shipments of 34.27 million handsets in the same time period.
