Huawei Maimang 6 launches in China, may launch outside of China as Mate 10 Lite

Huawei has made the Maimang 6 official in China and pre-orders start today! The Maimang 6 is basically a Mate 10 Lite for the Chinese market, matching previous leaks and specs.

The device features the quad camera setup we saw earlier, with dual rear and front cameras for that bokeh effect Huawei does quite well. You can get a shallow depth of field like a DSLR through software and depth data from the second camera. Here are the rest of the specs:

  • 5.9-inch (2160 x 1080 pixels) Full HD+ 2.5D curved glass display
  • Octa-Core Kirin 659 processor (4 xA53 at 2.36GHz + 4 x A53 at 1.7GHz) with MaliT830-MP2 GPU
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 256GB with microSD
  • Android 7.0 (Nougat) with EMUI 5.1
  • Hybrid Dual SIM (nano+nano/microSD)
  • 16MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, secondary 2MP camera
  • 13MP front camera with soft LED flash, secondary 2MP camera
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Dimensions: 156.2 × 75.2 × 7.5mm; Weight: 164g
  • 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS / Glonass, NFC
  • 3340mAh battery

The device is aimed more towards the mid-range but retains some solid specs. It’s likely to launch in other markets as the Mate 10 Lite in the future. It’s currently available for pre-order in China in black, gold, and blue for 2,399 yuan, or around $364 USD.
