The Maimang 6 will make its way to global markets later as the Huawei Mate 10 Lite.
The Huawei Maimang 6 flaunts a 5.9-inch FHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ration making the bezels on the smartphone minimal. The resolution of the display is 2160×1080 pixels.

There is also a fingerprint scanner located at the back of the smartphone.
The camera department is where the Maimang 6 really shines, with a total of four camera sensors on board, this makes the Unique Selling Proposition for the device.

Up front, the phablet features a dual-camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel main camera and a secondary 2-megapixel depth-sensing camera.
