Earlier this week, an upcoming Huawei smartphone had been certified by TENAA in China. As speculated, the smartphone is indeed going to be marketed as the Maimang 6 in China, successor to last year’s Maimang 5. Huawei has released a new poster for the smartphone’s upcoming launch, happening on the 22nd of this month. A press render of the smartphone has also been leaked online by reputed smartphone leakster Evan Blass.
The Maimang 5 was released in markets outside China as the G9 Plus, so it does seem likely that the Maimang 6 will debut as the G10 Plus in other markets later this year. The Maimang 6 will be Huawei’s first mid-range smartphone to feature an 18:9 EntireView display. While the screen-to-body ratio isn’t as high as a few flagship smartphones, it does seem very impressive for a mid-range offering. The display will measure 5.9-inches diagonally and come with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution. It will be running on an octa-core processor under the hood, clocked at a high 2.6 GHz. In the memory department, the TENAA listing revealed the Maimang 6 will come equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.
The main USP of the Maimang 6 will be the presence of dual cameras both on the front as well as at the rear. At the back, the smartphone features a 16MP + 2MP setup, while on the front it features a 13MP + 2MP setup for selfies. Huawei has equipped the Maimang 6 with a 3240mAh capacity battery inside, although it looks like fast charging will not be supported. In terms of color options, the handset will be offered in three colors – Black, Blue, and Gold. On the software front, it will be running on Android Nougat OS out of the box, with Huawei’s custom EMUI layer running atop.
While the G9 Plus did not make its way to India, we are hoping Huawei will be bringing the G10 Plus to out shores later this year.
