G7 Plus goes official in Thailand, pretty much a rebranded Huawei G8.

Over the summer Huawei introduced on the market a successor of the Ascend G7, dubbed Huawei G8, a phone which is more than just an upgrade to the 2014 top of the mid-range line phone, because it comes with an all new design.

Now fast forward to today (months later), the device is seeing a rebranding from G8 to G7 Plus for its launch in Thailand, one that strengthens its rightful place as the successor of the Ascend G7, even though the Chinese company dropped the “Ascend” from its name.

Huawei G7 Plus feature a 5.5″ Full HD screen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it, powered up by a 3,000 mAh battery and the Snapdragon 615 SoC from Qualcomm, which packs an octa-core 64-bit 1.5Ghz processor, 4G LTE modem and the Adreno 405 GPU.


Additionally, the Huawei G7 Plus for Thailand’s market (could arrive as the G7 Plus in Europe as well) packs 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM (internal storage), dual SIM slots, 5 and 13MP cameras and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Huawei’s Emotion 3.1 UI on top of it.

Huawei G7 Plus weighs in at 167 grams, measures 7.5mm in thickness and feature’s a 90% metal body whose back houses a fingerprint scanner, right under the main camera.

As for the price, Huawei sells the G7 Plus for around 390 Euros.
