Huawei Mobile Kenya is set to launch the Huawei Y6s in early March. The Huawei Y6s is their latest entrant in the budget category that comes after the launch of the midrange Huawei Nova 5T. In the run up for the launch day, Huawei has opened up a pre-order window for the Huawei Y6s.
The Huawei Y6s comes to succeed the Huawei Y6(2019) that was launched in March last year. We got to play around with it, did a comparison review and a full review – it held its own. So what does the Huawei Y6s bring to the table?
There are some features it carries from its predecessors such as the single 13MP rear camera and 8MP selfie camera. A 6.09″ inch LCD screen with a resolution of 720 by 1560 pixels, PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 3020mAh battery and Android 9 Pie.
Huawei updated some of the other features including bringing EMUI 9.1, MediaTek Helio P35 chip which is a relatively faster processor than the Helio A22 chip found in the predecessor.
Internals got upgraded too – from 2GB of RAM to 3GB of RAM and from 32GB of onboard storage to 64GG of onboard storage.
The phone will come in two colours, namely Orchid Blue and Starry Black and both look beautiful. It’s worth noting that the Huawei Y6(2019) had a Amber Brown version that came with a faux leather design that gave it a premium look.
