Huawei seems to be ready to answer HTC’s challenge, so after the Taiwanese brand release one of the cheapest handsets with OIS camera on the market, Huawei does the same. Their model is called the Huawei G7 Plus and it’s supposed to be a midrange phablet with “90% metal chassis”.
The newcomer also has a fingerprint scanner and the G7 Plus is a follow-up to last year’s G7. The 5.5 inch screen on board offers a Full HD resolution and inside the phone there’s the famous octa core Snapdragon 615 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. A 13 megapixel back camera is included, with OIS, sapphire lens, RGBW sensor, wider aperture and good low light performance.
G7 Plus adopts an aluminum aviation grade chassis, that comes in silver, gray and gold. The fingerprint scanner is at the back and we’re also getting an improved speaker chamber. Android 5.1 is the OS here, with the promised of Marshmallow in February next year. Weighing 167 grams and measuring 7.5 mm, this isn’t exactly a compact phone, that’s for sure.
That $330 price tag is appealing though…
