It has been a year since Huawei announced the Maimang 6 in China. So it comes as no surprise when it announced today the launch date for the Maimang 7. According to the official poster, the Maimang 7 will be unveiled on September 12 but that isn’t the only thing the poster revealed.
Huawei isn’t hiding anything with respect to the phone’s design as all the angles of the phone are shown on the poster. This isn’t surprising since the Maimang 7 is actually the same device as the Mate 20 Lite which is already official.
The Maimang 7 has a notched display and curved glass on the back. Just like its predecessor, the phone also has dual cameras on each side. The dual rear cameras are arranged vertically and are in line with the fingerprint scanner.
The Maimang 7 will come with a 6.3-inch 2340 x 1080 screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It will pack the new Kirin 710 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
The dual rear cameras are a 20MP + 2MP combo while the front cameras are a combination of a 24MP sensor and another 2MP sensor. The Maimang 7 will pack a 3750mAh battery, a USB-C port, and have support for fast charging. It will run EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
The Mate 20 Lite is sold for about $436 but the Maimang 7 will most likely sell for less.
