Announced just a little over a week ago, the upper mid-range Huawei G7 Plus
packs quite the hardware for a $330 equivalent, and has them looks nailed. The metal-clad phone
is built using aviation-grade aluminum and is just 7.5mm thick — impressive when you consider the Chinese giant has managed to cram a 3,000 mAh battery and a sapphire lens-protected camera with optical stabilization. The news? This bad boy has already received the review treatment and we can glean more about it.
A phablet by all means, the 5.5-inch G7 Plus packs a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 and 3 gigs of RAM, with Android 5.1 Lollipop behind the wheel. One of them excellent, touch-type fingerprints that Huawei has been using lately is also available at the back, offering quick access to the phone without even having to power on the screen first. Overall, a solid upgrade from last year's Huawei Ascend G6
Now, our Thai is a little rusty, so it's unclear if there were any overarching issues with the G7 Plus, though we're free to make sense of the hands-on images of the phone and the camera samples available. Since we weren't physically there, we won't presume to be in a position to judge camera performance, though we won't deny that Huawei has worked out a very likable phone in terms of design.
