Huawei Maimang 6 / RNE-AL00 spotted in the wild

Huawei has scheduled an event for September 22, which seems to be for the Maimang 6, aka RNE-AL00. We saw its specs on TENAA, now let’s look at some live photos of the device. It has a 5.9” 1080p screen – 1,080 x 2,160px specifically due to the 18:9 aspect ratio (never mind that the benchmark claims 720p).

The octa-core chipset has been named – Kirin 659, the chipset used in Huawei’s nova 2. It has eight Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU, in this case paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

Additional info from someone who handled the device claims Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1. The benchmark claims Android 6.0 and EMUI 5.0, so this particular unit may not be running final software.

The front dual camera has 13MP + 2MP sensors and its own flash. The strength of the flash will be adjusted automatically based on ambient light conditions. On the rear is second dual camera, this time with 16MP + 2MP sensors.

The Huawei RNE-AL00 will be priced around CNY 2,000 ($305/€255 or so). There will be a 4GB/64GB version, which will presumably cost more. Chances are that this device will be called Huawei G10 when it launches in the west.
