Huawei have launched another smartphone for Chinese consumers to choose from, the device is the Huawei G6 Plus and features a metal body and 16 mega-pixel camera with OIS.
The Plus in the name had us first think that the new Huawei might be a larger 6-inch phone, but now that it has officially launched we learn the display is a standard 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 panel, similar to those found on other 2016 devices.
While the Huawei P6 Plus isn’t any larger than other phones it does come with some impressive kit piled inside the all metal CNC chassis.
Highlights include a 16 mega-pixel Sony IMX298 rear camera which comes with all the usual bells and whistles from OIS, PDAF and dual LED flash. Huawei have also included some software tweaks so that the G6 Plus is a great low-light performer.
