Although Huawei uses its HiSilicon chips for most devices it launches these days, there are still some exceptions to this rule. Last month, they unveiled a successor of the GX8 series that uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB OTG, GPS, USB Type-C
  • Operating system: Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top
  • Weight: 0.35 pounds
  • Battery/Autonomy: 3340 mAh; over two days of regular use

This handset comes with an aluminum unibody design and features a fingerprint reader on the back, right below the main camera. The 3 GB RAM variant is priced at roughly $360 USD, while the 4 GB variant has no official price yet. Sales in China are expected to begin on August 25th, but there is no informational on the international availability of the G9 Plus yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
