Huawei has updated its Maimang series in China with the launch of Huawei Maimang 8. It is the successor of last year’s Maimang 7 offering a 6.21-inch display, waterdrop notch, and triple rear camera setup. The Huawei Maimang 8 looks familiar because it is identical to the Huawei P Smart+ 2019 from last year. The only difference we see between the two handsets is that the Maimang 8 offers 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage compared to 3GB RAM and 64GB storage of P Smart+ 2019.
The Huawei Maimang 8 is priced at 1899 Yuan (approx.. Rs. 19,000 / US$ 274) and comes in Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue color options. The device is already available to pre-order and will go on sale from June 12th in China.
