Are 18:9 Screens the New Cool? Huawei Launches a New Device with an 18:9 Screen.

Maimang.

But that is the name of Huawei’s new device — there are other Maimang devices, but this is the latest in the series. And just like other devices launched this year from Samsung, Apple and LG, the Huawei Maimang 6 is sporting an 18:9 screen.

 
That is not the only unique feature, though. You also get a “quad-camera” system — two cameras on the back, 16 and 2 megapixels, and two on the front, 13 and 2 megapixels— not groundbreaking but still cool for a device that is about $364.

As for the remaining specs, the device is a 5.9-inch 2160×1080 screen with noticeable bezels on the top, bottom, and sides of the device. You also get a Kirin 659 processor with four cores clocked at 2.36GHz and other four cores at 1.7GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of expandable storage. There’s a non-removable 3,340 mAh battery inside and an Android 7.0 OS.
(I doubt if this would launch in Nigeria)
Coming in at $364 (N141,000), do you think the Huawei Maimang 6 is overpriced for the processor it houses?
Meanwhile, something tells me Infinix or Tecno might launch their 18:9 devices pretty soon.

      Which of them don’t you understand?
      The first gif is about MissTechy not understanding what Maimang means.
      The last gif is misstechy mimicking “sipping tea”. which means sitting by and listening to gossip — not necessarily incorporating any negativity into

    TECNO and infinix? Nah, not a chance.
    Honestly I couldn’t care less about the resolution just give me a damn current flagship phone from one of these OEMs and I’ll be eternally grateful. Don’t give me an iCrap X tho.
