Huawei has unveiled its latest P Series smartphones – the Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Max Phablet. According to Huawei, both devices feature 13-megapixel cameras and come with a dual-tone flash in order to brighten up photos taken in low-light conditions.

Huawei also revealed that the phones also offer a “light painting” feature. According to the smartphone manufacturer, unlike light painting functions on ordinary phones, the Huawei P8 Max provides a real time preview display and hand controlled aperture of a picture.

The device has an Optical Image Stabilisation function on the rear camera, which enables great pictures even without a tripod according to the company, 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. Huawei also revealed that both devices will feature a 8-megapixel front facing camera.

The 5.2-inch P8 comes with a minimum of 16GB of in-built storage, which is expandable up to 128GB, and is powered by an octa-core chipset with 64-bit processors. It features 3GB of RAM, a 2,680mAh battery and space for two 4G SIMs (one micro, one nano).

The P8 Max phablet, meanwhile, features a 6.8-inch display that covers 83 percent of the front of the phone and is the largest in-cell FHD screen in the world, according to Huawei. In spite of its size, Huawei claimed the handset was still “pocketable” thanks to being just 6.8mm thin. The Max has a larger 4360mAh battery that allows users to watch video for 15 hours or listen to music for 60 hours, according to Huawei.
