The tumultuous time for Huawei isn’t over and so as their smartphone launches. The Huawei Y8p, Huawei’s new mid-ranger, has been quietly launched through placement on the company’s website. It brings the beloved Kirin 710F chipset as well as the 48MP RYYB camera at the rear.
The phone’s front gets a 6.3-inch OLED screen with 1080p+ resolution and 90.17% screen-to-body ratio. Surprisingly enough, it also has an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is quite rare in this segment.
At the back is a 48MP primary camera with what Huawei calls a SuperSpectrum sensor — just a fancy name for RYYB sensors. The main camera also has a Super Night Mode that allows up to 6 seconds of exposure with AI image processing.
Apart from that, the main camera is paired with an 8MP ultrawide shooter(120-degree FoV) as well as a 2MP depth sensor. The front, which has a notch at the top, holds a 16MP selfie cam.
The Y8p, just like Huawei’s most mid-rangers lately has Kirin 710F chipset alongside 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There’s also an upgraded version with 6GB of RAM, nonetheless, expansion of storage on both variants can be done through NM card only. Out of the box, the phone boots on EMUI 10.1 layered on top of Android 10, and instead of Google Play Store, the phone ships with Huawei AppGallery.
Powering the phone is a regular 4,000mAh battery with 10W charging, which is quite disappointing. Thankfully there’s a USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack to the rescue.
The Huawei Y8p is available in Midnight Black and Breathing Crystal and can be purchased in Belarus for BYN 650 (~$267). The first sale will start from May 29, with a 99% discount on Huawei Band 4 Pro if you pre-order it by the 28th of May. The device is also available in Myanmar, but pricing for the region is unknown.
Huawei recently unveiled its predecessor, the Y7p in Nepal for Rs. 23,900.
