Huawei to unveil phone with 18:9 aspect ratio display, dual front and rear cameras soon

Huawei set to unveil an intriguing new phone on September 22

Following one of this year’s major smartphone trends, Huawei is also gearing up to release phones with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. According to rumors we’ve seen so far, the Mate 10 flagship will come with a tall and narrow body characteristic of this aspect ratio.

But by the looks of it, the company will unveil a more affordable model with an “EntireView” 18:9 aspect ratio screen before launching the premium Mate 10 which is expected to arrive in October.

The Chinese phone maker recently shared a poster for an event scheduled to take place on September 22 on the social media website Weibo.

On this date, Huawei will introduce a new handset called Maimang 6 (on other markets the phone will probably be known as the G10) which will arrive with a 5.9-inch “EntireView” 2,160 x 1,080 resolution display. You see last year’s middle-range Huawei G9 Plus was sold as the Maimang 5 in China, hence the assumption.

The handset recently passed through TENAA revealing a few other specs in the process. The Huawei G10 will most likely take advantage of an unnamed octa-core processor, backed up by 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage and a 3,240 mAh battery.

But the most interesting part comes now. Apparently, the phone will sport dual-cameras on the back, as well as on the front. According to the listing, the Huawei G10 will feature a primary 16MP+2MP dual camera setup and a secondary 13MP+2MP combination.

Details about pricing and availability of the phone are yet unknown, but we’ll know more on September 22.
