The mid-range is fast becoming the most competitive market in the industry and Huawei has expanded its mid-range G-series with the new Huawei G7 Plus. The new handset is similar to the Huawei G8, which was announced at IFA 2015 and aims to offer a competitive mid-range experience at an affordable price.

The G7 Plus is the successor to last year’s Huawei G7 and offers an upgraded display and processor compared to the previous model. The front features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

The back comes with a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone flash and a square fingerprint sensor beneath it, while the front camera captures 5MP images with Huawei’s beauty level software feature also onboard. Like other Huawei devices, there’s dual SIM capability and comes with LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth, while the software is Android 5.1 Lollipop with Emotion UI v3.1 on top.

The G7 Plus has launched in China and Thailand through the company’s official website at a price of 2095 Yuan, which is approximately $330. It’s currently unknown if the handset will be available outside of these markets at a later date.
