Huawei’s Maimang 5 smartphone is an interesting device
The Chinese Huawei has surprised its fans with the release of an unknown smartphone called Maimang 5. Literally until now nothing was known of the device so this is a rare case where we did not have a leak before the official announcement of a smartphone. Unfortunately it seems the Maimang 5 is for the Chinese market only and it is unclear if it will ever visit other countries.
The Maimang 5 comes housed in a metallic chassis that looks really nice. The smartphone has been built around a 5.5-inch display that works at 1920 x 1080 pixels. There’s a Snapdragon 625 processor inside, though, which is not the most powerful SoC there is. There are two versions of the Maimang 5 – the first one comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, while the second one has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. In both cases these two models sport a 16 MP rear camera with a Sony IMX298 sensor, a 16 MP front camera, optical stabilization and hybrid autofocus. A 3340 mAh battery provides power for the device. The Maimang 5 also runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow under the EMUI 4.1 user’s interface.
The 3 GB RAM version sells for USD 360, while the model with 4 GB of RAM costs USD 390.
