Everyone has been waiting for this almost legendary moment: Huawei has finally announced the release of the G7 Plus in China. This smartphone isn’t too different from the G8 (quite on the contrary), the launch of which we’ve already covered. The handsets are identical, the only difference is that G7 Plus offers as twice as much expandable storage, compared to G8.
The smartphone has a metallic body, antenna bands and speaker grilles similar to the iPhone. The Huawei G7 is the successor of the last year’s Huawei G7, only that the newer counterpart offers an improved processor and higher resolution, among other divergences. G7 Plus is listed on the manufacturer’s Thai site and on the official Vmall online store.
Let’s see what G7 Plus brings to the table specs-wise. It has a 5.5-inch IPS FullHD 2.5D display, with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixel. It is fueled by the Qualcomm MSM8939 chipset with an octa-core (1.2GHz quad-core + 1.5GHz quad-core) processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM. It also comes with 32GB of inbuilt storage, expandable with a microSD card up to 128GB. And let’s not forget the fingerprint sensor on the back.
Camera-wise, it has a 13-megapixel rear one with autofocus and a dual-tone flash, a 5-megapixel sensor on the front. A 3000mAh battery keeps the phone running. It’s a dual-SIM smartphone, supporting 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi and other standard connectivity options. G7 Plus runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with Emotion UI 3.1 on top.
The price for this handset is around $330, which converts to Rs. 21,800. But it seems like we’ll have to wait a while until it becomes available internationally.
