Last year, Huawei CEO Richard Yu said that he does not support QHD displays for smartphones. As there is no considerable difference between Full HD and QHS displays, it would difficult to distinguish between the both with a human eye. It seems that he has changed his mind.
On a post on Weibo (via GizmoChina), CEO Ricard Yu said, “Last year I would certainly not buy a 2K device as the power consumption was high and the difference to my eyes non-existent. But now I have changed my mind and my next phone will be 2K as I like VR!.”
Yu had said that the next smartphone would have 2K, which means QHD display would be used. To note that the change in ideology was followed by the launch (two days ago) of Huawei P9 series and VR headset.
For those who are unaware of the launch event, the official unveiling was earlier this month and it saw the release of Huwaei P9 and P9 Plus.
Meanwhile, GFXBench spotted another smartphone that shows a massive 6.9-inch screen. The benchmark notes that the newly spotted device is Huawei P9 Max, and it also says that the device will offer 1920 x 1080 resolutions. The device is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC. However, the anomaly is that AnTuTu benchmark- that came out last year- showed a 4GB of RAM but the recent tests showed 3GB of RAM, notes TechBeasts.
The device includes other features such as 16MP rear camera, autofocus, LED Flash, HDR support, 32 GB of storage, 8MP front camera, and Full HD video capture support.
Lastly, the P9 Max will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the Huawei Emotion UI over the top. Rumours suggest that the device may have QHD display.
