The Mate 10 Lite officially introduced as Huawei Maimang 6: four cameras, 5.9-inch 18:9 display
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.
