In addition, the phone’s branding has also changed, and as of now, it will go by ‘Maimang’. This change of ownership and branding is likely due to the chip ban sanctioned on Huawei, which prevents Huawei to secure any chips made by TSMC, which is the leading contract manufacturer for chipsets.

The screen has a punch hole cutout for its front camera, placed in the top center.
For optics, the Maimang 10 features a triple camera setup with a 40-megapixel AI primary sensor, 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The device also features a 16-megapixel snapper for selfies and video calls.
Under the hood, the device houses a 5G enabled MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC consisting of four fast ARM Cortex-A76 cores and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores, all clocked at 2 GHz. The GPU present on the SoC is the Mali-G57. The device comes with 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage expandable via a micro-SD card.
