Highlights
  • Huawei's G9 Plus appears identical to its Maimang 5 smartphone
  • For now, only a 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant is available
  • Huawei launched the G9 Plus on Thursday

Huawei on Thursday launched the G9 Plus smartphone in China, priced at CNY 2,399 (roughly Rs. 24,200) for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant. A 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant was also announced, but no pricing or availability details were given yet. The smartphone is already on sale in China.

The Huawei G9 Plus appears to be identical to the Huawei Maimang 5 that was launched last month, and according to a report by GizmoChina from the Beijing launch, the phone is just a variant of the Maimang 5 meant for China Unicom customers. The Maimang 5 was meant for China Mobile customers.

With the price of the G9 Plus matching the Maimang 5, it's fair to assume when the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant launches it will be priced the same as the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant of the Maimang 5, which is priced at CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 26,200).

The dual-SIM Huawei G9 Plus smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company's EUI 4.1 skin atop. It sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) IPS LCD display with pixel density of 401ppi. It is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 3GB of RAM.

It sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, OIS, and dual-tone LED flash, apart from an 8-megapixel front facing camera. The G9 Plus comes with 32GB of storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). As we mentioned, a 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage variant was also announced, but no pricing or availability details are available as yet.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, 4G, and USB Type-C. Sensors on the phone include a proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, and an accelerometer. It weighs 160 grams, and measures 151.8x75.7x7.3mm. It is powered by a 3340mAh battery.
