Yesterday, the images of the Huawei Maimang 7 had appeared on TENAA, the telecom regulatory body from China. Today, the TENAA listing of the smartphone has been updated with its entire specifications. A recent report has revealed that Huawei has shipped more number of notched display smartphones than any other phone brand in the world. The Maimang 7 which is expected to land in European markets as Mate 20 Lite is yet another smartphone with notched display.
The Maimang 7 that has a model number of SNE-AL00 measures 158.3 x 75.3 x 7.6mm and it weighs 172 grams. The TENAA listing states that apart from black, there is no other color variant of the Maimang 7 smartphone. The handset houses a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display that produces Full HD+ resolution 2340 x 1080 pixels. It means that the display will offer an aspect ratio of 19:9. The wide notch of the phone houses two front-facing cameras.
The SNE-AL00 is fueled by 2.2 GHz octa-core processor which suggests that it could be the second phone from the company to feature the Kirin 710 SoC. It is packed with 3,650mAh battery. The handset is preinstalled with Android 8.1.0 Oreo.
The SoC is coupled with 6 GB of RAM. It includes 64 GB of internal storage. Since “not support” is mentioned for external storage, it seems that the smartphone won’t be carrying support for adding a microSD card. For photography, the Maimang 7 features 20-megapixel + 2-megapixel rear-mounted dual camera and its frontside features 24-megapixel + 2-mgapixel dual camera.
The Maimang 6 that was rolled out as Mate 10 Lite in other regions had featured an aluminum body. The Maimang 7 seems to be featuring a glass build on the rear. Below the vertical dual camera, there is a fingerprint scanner. The appearance of the back panel of the phone is similar to Porsche Design Mate 10. Now that the Maimang 6 has been certified in China, it may go official soon. There is a possibility that the Mate 20 Lite may go official by September as the October launch event could be only meant for announcing Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones. Since Mate 20 Lite has a notched screen, it is likely that the Mate 20 and 20 Pro smartphones may also feature the same display design.
