Huawei just announced a new mid-range smartphone for its Chinese customers, as part of its Maimang range. The new Huawei Maimang 8 looks familiar, because the phone is identical to the Huawei P Smart+ 2019 that was launched last year.
Huawei Maimang 8 Features
The Huawei Maimang 8 features a 6.21 inch IPS panel with FHD+ resolution, and a waterdrop notch that houses the 8MP selfie camera. At the back, you will find a 24MP main camera and a 16MP ultra-wide combo, alongside a third 2MP depth sensor. The back also houses the fingerprint reader.
The Maimang 8 is powered by the Kirin 710 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The internal storage can be expanded further up to 512GB via a microSD slot. It also comes with a 3400mAh battery, which can be topped up via the dated microUSB port. The phone runs on EMUI9 on top of Android Pie.
Huawei Maimang 8 Price and Availability
The Huawei Maimang 8 price starts from CNY1,899 ( roughly $274 or €244). Pre-orders of the Maimang 8 begins today, June 6th 2019, while the official release is scheduled for June 12. The phone will be available in two colours – Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue.
