Huawei has added yet another device to bolster its existing device portfolio in the mid-range price category. The all new device from Huawei is apparently being dubbed the Huawei G7 Plus and comes with a similar externals as seen with the recently launched G8.
The Chinese brand has laid the wraps of the metal clad Huawei G8 at the IFA, 2015 in Berlin a few months back. Surprisingly the resemblance of the newly launched Huawei G7 Plus doesn't end in the design. Rather it carries over to the internals too.
The Huawei G7 Plus features a 5.5" Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS display with a 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood is 64bit enabled Snapdragon 615 octa core SoC with cores clocked at 1.5GHz each. This is coupled with a Adreno 405 GPU.
The device further comes with a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Unlike most device, the Huawei G7 Plus also comes with an option for memory expansion via MicroSD card slot (upto 128GB). The Huawei G7 Plus also features a Square Shaped Fingerprint Sensor on the back of the device.
In terms of cameras the Huawei G7 Plus features a 13MP AF rear camera with dual tone flash and a 5MP front facing selfie snapper. To power the octa core SoC Huawei has bundled in a 3000mAh battery. The Huawei G7 Plus supports dual SIM cards and supports 4G LTE connectivity.
The Huawei G7 Plus runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 with the company's eMUI 3.1 on top. Apparently the device was spotted on the company's Thailand website as well its official online store Vmall at Rs 21,800 ($330). Furthermore the Huawei G7 Plus and G8 is identical in all respects except in the external storage - 128GB in place of 64GB.
Huawei hasn't come up with their plans to launch the device globally. However going by the specs it seems that the Huawei G7 Plus is a slightly modified G8 tailor-made for Thailand.
