Huawei Launches Maimang 8 in China With Decent Specs

Huawei, under its Chinese Maimang series, recently launched a midrange smartphone under the moniker Maimang 8. The phone has been launched for its Chinese consumer base and might see an international launch under a different name.

The ongoing feud with the US government hasn’t stopped Huawei from launching new models, which is good news. However, we have seen a definite decline in the number of phones being launched by the phone maker.

Maimang 8 is identical to Huawei P Smart+ 2019 and features good specifications at a reasonable price.

Design and Display

Looks wise, Maimang 8 features a generic Huawei finish with rounded corners, a glossy back, triple sensor rear camera vertically set up on the left and a fingerprint sensor housed towards the center. The phone will be launched in two colors: midnight black and sapphire blue.

Moving to the display, Maimang 8 has a 6.21-inch IPS LCD display with 1080p resolution and 415 ppi pixel density. The display has small bezels with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.

Internal and Storage

The phone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset topped with an ARM Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. It features 6 GB RAM accompanied by 64 gigs of built-in storage.

Software-wise, the phone comes with Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.

Cameras

At the back, Maimang 8 features a triple sensor camera with 24 MP main sensor, 16 MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 2 MP depth sensor.

Towards the front, it has a modest single sensor 8 MP shooter housed in the waterdrop notch.

Battery and Pricing

Maimang 8 comes with a 3400 mAh battery with a MicroUSB charging port, no support for fast charging. It is scheduled for release on 12th of June at a price tag of $274.

  • Good product/specs., price now in PKR very, very, high. Please consider to an economically justifiable price to fulfill user, brand the beneficiary.
    Plan to work in a project of digitalisation project to score up the literacy for digitalisation of youth, women, seniors.
    Considering our interest would be higher, may team up with NGO, to jutify you with the audited statement. Will Huawei consider a participation program for pricing, support, upgrades, software, risk coverage i.e., insurance etc. Program should start in one or two months. Please resond.

    • Lol. Dude your post is well written and it’s good to see you’re highly motivated and in a good direction.
      But this is a tech review post on a blogging site.
      Don’t you think that you should look for the Huawei management email and contact them there?

    • My friend, firstly you should stop using big words, when you barely have any knowledge of articulation, pronouns, prepositions, or even punctuation for that matter. Secondly, this is more or less a blogging site, and it is of no consequence to Huawei if you complain over here. Go write an email to their business address, call on their helpline, or meet with a representative to promulgate your wonderful business ideas. Good day.

  • BRO YOU ALL MUST READ.
    WE ALL WANT TO HAVE ARK OS A BETTER PLATFORM.RECENTLY I FACED SOME ANNOYING THINGS FROM ANDROID.MOST IMPORTANT TO MENTION IS THAT IS BANS USERS TO RECORD INTERNAL VOICE WHEN SCREEN RECORDING FROM ANY THING.ALL THE VOICE IS COMING FROM THE MICROPHONE WHICH IS A PART OF HARDWARE.SO ARK OS MUST HAVE THE FEATURE TO RECORD SCREEN DIRECTLY WITH VOICE USING SOFTWARE NOT HARDWARE BECAUSE MOST YOUTUBERS AND APPLICATIONS HAVE TO RECORD USING MICROPHONES WHICH CREAT A LOTS OF NOISE.
    ARK OS MUST LOOK DIFFERENT SO TELL HUAWEI IN THE PAGES TO DEVELOP THIS THING.I TOO HAVE CONTACTED THEM ON FACEBOOK PAGE BUT WHY WILL THEY LISTEN A SINGLE IDENTITY.
