Local telco Maxis is now offering the Huawei G8 on Zerolution for a low monthly rate of RM107. Announced at IFA 2015 and launched in Malaysia weeks ago, the G8 has a fingerprint sensor. It is a more affordable mid-range device compared to the Huawei Mate S that was unveiled at the same time.
Zerolution is a service that lets users bring home a device with zero upfront payment, zero contract, and “zero 24 month contract”. For the Huawei G8’s Zerolution price of RM107 a month, it is broken down into RM48/month for the rental of the device, RM44/month to ensure you get a new phone every year, and RM15 as an insurance to protect your phone (screen cracks, accidental damage and even theft).
The Huawei G8 has a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display and it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 paired with 3GB of RAM. The device has 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot that supports storage expansion of up to 64GB. On the back, there is a 13MP camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) with the fingerprint sensor right below it. As for the front, a 5MP camera will be in charge for those selfie moments.
