Huawei has quietly lifted the lid on a new mid-range smartphone – the Huawei G7 Plus. This mid-ranger, however, has more to offer than the ordinary mid-range device. It is clad in 90% metal and features a camera with OIS and a fingerprint scanner.
Say hello to the Huawei G7 Plus
Like the G7, the G7 Plus sports a 5.5-inch screen, but this time not a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (HD). It offers a bumped up resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). Under the hood is a pretty capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It also features 32 GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for additional storage options. The G7 Plus still features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, but this time with optical image stabilisation, sapphire lens, an RGBW sensor, and wider aperture, which means better performance in low-light conditions. Other additions include a fingerprint scanner, which is pretty much the trend in the mobile industry these days, and improved an improved speaker chamber. To keep the lights on, the smartphone features a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, with Huawei promising to roll out the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) update in February of next year.
The Huawei G7 Plus pretty much keeps the original design of its predecessor, but this time clad in “90% metal,” giving a mid-range device a more premium look and feel. Colour options include Silver, Grey, and Gold. It measures 152.5 x 76.5 x 7.5 mm and weighs in at 167 g. The only problem with these measurements is that, if you’re looking for a smartphone with minimal bezels, this is not the device that you have been looking for. Despite this, the 5.5-inch screen still offers a lot of real estate compared to a lot of devices out there.
The Huawei G7 Plus will be first available in Asia for the equivalent of £217 for the SIM free version. This isn’t a bad price for a device that has this much to offer.
It is yet to be determined if and when the Huawei G7 Plus will be available in the UK.
