Huawei’s entry-level lineup gets two new members today, the Huawei Y6P and Y5P, both of which share the same chipset as well as the support for Huawei Mobile Servies in place of GMS.
Starting off with the superior one, the Huawei Y6P offers a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch that hides the 8MP selfie camera. The back sees a 13MP primary camera with an 8MP ultrawide shooter and a 2MP depth sensor. There is also a capacitive fingerprint scanner.
Under the helm, the Huawei Y6P carries Helio P22 chipset accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage — expandable via microSD card. The phone runs on an impressive 5,000mAh battery but misses out on the fast charging trend, plus it also lacks the Type-C port in favor of outdated microUSB port. Out of the box, the phone boots on EMUI 10.1 on top of Android 10 lacking Google Mobile Services (GMS) — Huawei’s own HMS suite takes its place.
For pricing, the Huawei Y6P starts at a price of RON 799 (~Rs. 21,775). Pre-order is beginning from tomorrow with RON 200 (~Rs. 5000) discount. The phone is available in green, purple, and black color options.
The Huawei Y5P has the same Helio P22 chipset but differs in almost all aspects, including the screen which measures 5.43-inch diagonally. It’s a TFT LCD panel and has a thick top and bottom bezels with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The rear has only one 8MP camera with an LED flash while the front gets a 5MP sensor for selfies.
It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which is expandable via microSD cards. The battery is also downgraded to just 3,020mAh, carrying charge over the microUSB port. The phone runs on Android 10 with EMUI 10.1 and no GMS.
The Pre-order of the phone starts from tomorrow for 599 RON (~Rs. 16,324) with RON 200 (~Rs. 5,490) discount. The phone comes in black, blue and mint colors.
