The Maimang 6, despite the affordable price tag, doesn’t skimp on hardware at all. For starters, it’s the first Huawei phone to feature an edge-to-edge 5.9-inch (2160 x 1080 pixel resolution) display up front. There are a total of four cameras as the Maimang 6 sports dual-camera setups on both the sides.

On the rear, you will find a standard 16-megapixel sensor with an additional 2-megapixel lens for evaluating the depth in your pictures, hence producing relatively realistic bokeh effects. Similarly, it sports a 13-megapixel front-facing camera along backed up by a secondary 2-megapixel sensor and a soft LED flash.
