We’ve been waiting for Huawei’s follow up for their very successful G8 smartphone, and the company has finally unveiled its successor in China. The new G9 Plus, which looks almost exactly like the China-only Maimang 5, sports mid-range innards encased as always in a beatiful metal body.

The G9 Plus has a 5.5-inch full HD display, along with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor and either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage. There’s a 16-megapixel shooter on the rear with AF and OIS, PDAF and 4K recording capabilities while a 8-megapixel camera resides on the front.
There’s a fingerprint scanner thrown in the mix as well which is pretty much the norm for mid-range Huawei phones, and a 3,340mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android Marshmallow is the OS of choice for the G9 Plus, though it’s been given Huawei’s EMUI treatment just like every other phone the company has released so far. A USB Type-C connector allows the phone to enjoy fast charging.
The G9 Plus is slated to be released in China come August 25, and the 3GB/32GB version of the phone is priced at RMB 2399, or around 16.7K in our currency. No idea for the higher 4GB/64GB as far as pricing goes – same for international availability.
