Huawei sure believes that size does matter, especially in the smartphone market. Which is why they came up with the Huawei Y Max — a device that could be the start of a new product line for Huawei.

The Huawei Y Max boasts a gigantic 7.12-inch FHD+ display. This could make ‘phablet’ smartphones a thing again. It’s actually the same screen size that the Mate 20 X has. There’s also a stereo speaker setup for the complete entertainment experience.


Besides the display, the Y Max also has a big battery. It brags a 5,000mAh battery, which is one of the biggest capacity you can find on a Huawei smartphone.

The hardware is pretty decent; we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset that’s aided by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It’s surprising that Huawei didn’t use any of their in-house Kirin processors on this thing.


Probably the most interesting characteristic of the Huawei Y Max is its design. The back panel boasts a leather-like aesthetic with fake stitching on the sides. It looks more refreshing than most of their midrange smartphone designs have, like the Y9 2019.
