Few days after the device was spotted on China’s regulatory agency TENAA’s website, Huawei has launched the Maimang 5. Huawei Maimang 5 is the company’s latest mid-range device and is expected to go on sale outside China as Huawei G9.
Huawei Maimang 5 features an all metal clad body with diamond cut edges. It sports a 5.5-inch FHD display with 1080pixels resolution. The display also has a 2.5D glass on top, protecting it from scratch. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor from Qualcomm, which is somewhat of a surprise, given that Huawei has its Kirin processor. There’s also a 3D fingerprint scanner at the back.
The device comes in two different RAM versions, one with 3GB RAM and yet another with 4GB RAM size.
Huawei Maimang 5 sports a 16MP rear-facing camera with Sony IMX298 sensor with three axis OIS, dual-tone LED flash, 6P lens, PDAF and Hybrid AF. Also, the rear camera captures 4K videos at 30fps. In the front unit, Huawei crams an 8MP camera withf/2.0 aperture and beauty 2.0.
The Maimang 5 will boot Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ENUI 4.1 on top. The device also crams a generous 3340mAh battery inside which Huawei claims offers users about 15hours of HD video playback, 18 hours of continuous 4G internet access and 82 hours of continuous music playback, apparently working hand-in-hand with the Snapdragon 625 chipset.
Huawei Maimang 5 also provides other amazing features like 4G+, dual-SIM, dual standby and USB Type-C port.
