The Mate 10 Lite officially introduced as Huawei Maimang 6: four cameras, 5.9-inch 18:9 display
The Mate 10 is one of the last major smartphones to hit the market this year, a flagship that Huawei says it's worth waiting for. There have already been lots of leaks about the Mate 10 and its many variations, but no official word on any of them.
Today, Huawei introduced the Maimang 6 in China, the company's first smartphone to feature an 18:9 ratio display. We don't usually report on devices that are exclusively available in China, but the Maimang 6 is expected to be introduced in the rest of the world as Huawei Mate 10 Lite or G10.
The Maimang 6 is now available for pre-order in China for around $365 and come in Obsidian Black, Streamer Gold and Aurora Blue. The smartphone is supposed to hit the shelves on September 30.
The smartphone is equipped with a 2.36GHz octa-core Kirin 659 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. A rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is included as well, along with a 3,340 mAh battery (some models come with a 3,240 mAh battery).
The Maimang 6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top, and features hybrid dual-SIM support. Connectivity-wise, Huawei's phone comes with 4G support with VoLTE, NFC (Near Field Communications), Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS with GLONASS.
As mentioned earlier, the Maimang 6 is likely to be unveiled as Huawei Mate 10 Lite next month, although some of the specs might be different.
