Huawei Maimang 6 launched in China
It's all Huawei at the moment, as the company announced its first 18:9 phone in the form of the Maimang 6. The Maimang 6, particular to the Chinese market, identifies as an upper mid-range offering from the Chinese giant.
The Maimang 6 offers a number of improvements over its predecessor, the Maimang 5. It sports a 5.9-inch FHD display, with an 18:9 aspect ratio that effectively gives it the feel of a 5.5-inch one. While the Maimang 5 housed a Snapdragon 625, the 6 opts for the in-house Kirin 659, which outperforms the Snapdragon 625, albeit at the cost of lower graphics processing power and battery performance. It ships with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a dual rear camera setup (16 MP + 2 MP), dual selfie shooters (13 MP + 2MP), and a 3340 mAh battery.
The Maimang 6 has been touted to launch in western markets in the guise of the Mate 10 Lite. It comes in Obsidian Black, Streamer Gold, and Aurora Blue—along with a price tag that translates to US$365.
