Huawei CEO Richard Yu announced last year that he does not support QHD displays for smartphones. To clear his stance, he mentioned that there is no considerable difference between Full HD and QHD displays and that human eye can’t even distinguish between both. However, as of now, the CEO has changed his mind.
CEO Ricard Yu made a ost on Weibo, which says,
“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!.”
Note that he is definitely pointing towards QHD displays by using the word 2K. In addition to that, it must also be mentioned that this change in ideology came just days after Huawei officially unveiled their flagship P9 series and their own VR headset.
For those who haven’t heard, earlier this month, we saw an official unveiling of Huawei P9 and P9 plus. Not long after that, another smartphone was spotted on GFXBench. The benchmark lists the Huawei P9 Max with a massive 6.9 inch screen. The Huawei P9 Max’s screen will offer 1920 x 1080 resolutions while an octa core HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC will power the device. Moving on to an anomaly that exists in the listing, we saw an alleged 4 GB of RAM in the AnTuTu benchmark which came out last year, however the recent test shows just 3 GB RAM. Other features include 32 GB of storage, 16 megapixel rear shooter, autofocus, LED Flash, HDR support, 8 megapixel selfie camera and Full HD video capture support. Last but not the least, the P9 Max will feature Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the Huawei Emotion UI over the top. Is this the upcoming smartphone which might feature the QHD display?
