Huawei Maimang 8 With 6GB RAM, Triple Rear Cameras, Kirin 710 SoC Launched


Huawei’s ongoing battle with US authorities hasn’t stopped the company from launching new phones in the home market. The company has now launched the Huawei Maimang 8 in China. The smartphone comes with a waterdrop notch, a triple rear camera setup, and a rear fingerprint sensor. Looking at the specification and design, the Maimang 8 seems to be almost identical to the Huawei P Smart+ (2019) launched recently. The only notable difference is that the Maimang 8 packs 6GB RAM and has 128GB internal storage, whereas the P Smart+ (2019) packs 3GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The Huawei Maimang 8 price in China is set at CNY 1,899 (roughly Rs. 19,000) for the lone 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option. The phone has been launched in two colour options – Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue. The phone is up for pre-order already on Huawei Mall, and other major e-commerce platforms, and is set to go on sale from June 12 in China. As we mentioned, the smartphone appears to be the China variant of the Huawei P Smart+ (2019) that was launched recently.
