Huawei-G9-Plus

Huawei on Thursday launched the G9 Plus smartphone in China, priced at CNY 2,399 (roughly Rs. 24,200) for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant. A 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant was also announced, but no pricing or availability details were given yet. The smartphone is already on sale in China.
