Huawei seems to be trying to capture the budget and mid-range segment with its range of smartphones. Now the company has launched Huawei G9 Plus that has been placed in the mid-range segment and offers the specifications in accordance with that. Huawei has tried to showcase the phone as a premium one in the segment.
It has a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display on the front and the front bezels are also quite thin. It features a full metal body and looks really good to look at. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner on the back, just like many of the recent smartphones from the company. The scanner is capable enough to unlock the phone in just 0.3 seconds. The Huawei G9 Plus runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and has Huawei EMUI 4.1 on top.
Snapdragon 625 14nm octa-core processor powers the device and is clocked at 2.0 GHz. The graphics are handled by Adreno 506 GPU. 3 GB of RAM takes care of multitasking, and the internal storage of the device is 16 GB, which can be expanded further. It is a dual SIM smartphone but has a hybrid slot which can take either a second SIM or a memory card. The G9 Plus supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and other connectivity features.
A 16 MP camera sits on the back and comes with dual-tone flash, OIS, PDAF and Sony IMX 298 sensor. The combination seems to be giving good images. An 8 MP sensor is there on the front for taking selfies. The battery capacity of the smartphone is 3340 mAh. It has been announced in China and has been priced at 2399 yuan or US$ 360 or Rs. 24150 approximately.
