The much anticipated Huawei Maimang 5 has successfully gone through TENAA and has been certified. The device which looks like a smaller version of the Huawei Mate 8 had earlier been tipped to launch on July 14.
Around this time last year, Huawei released the Snapdragon 616 – powered Huawei Maimang 4 which was sensationally tagged the Chinese version of the Huawei G8. And one year on, what is obviously an upgrade of the Maimang 4 is about to shoot.
In appearance, the Maimang 5 sports a striking similarity in design with the Mate 8 albeit an inferior one at that. The device has a borderless design and also features a 5.5-inch Full-HD Touchscreen display.
At the back, the device packs a 16MP camera with LED flash just beside the camera and just under the camera, there is a fingerprint sensor. The Maimang 5 also features an 8MP front facing camera.
The TENAA listing showed the Huawei Maimang 5 is equipped with a 2.0GHz octa-core processor which is thought to be a Snapdragon 652 SoC, although it is likely that it turns out to be the Kirin 650 spec. The device offers both 3GB and 4GB RAM versions as well as 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of on-board storage variants all of which are expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. However, only the high-end 64GB internal storage version will come packing a 4GB RAM.
The listing also reveals the Huawei Maimang 5 will boot Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and crams a liberal 3270mAh battery under its hood.
The Maimang 5 will come in three different color variants; silver, pink and gold and will likely carry a price tag of around 2,000 Chinese Yuan (about US $300). We’re not sure about that though, but the entire information about the price will be made known when the device is officially unveiled come July 14.
