Huawei is already selling the Y7p in Kenya for KES 18000 and some pocket change on top depending on where you buy it. The device is partly the successor of the Y7 series – but comes with some changes, the main being lack of Google services. The Chinese company and some customers are settling into this harsh reality, but things are not as bad as we have been made to believe. The Y7p, for instance, can be equipped with the majority of apps that most people use, and we detailed that process in a previous post.
Now, you should also remember that the Y series, which, as its price suggests, is a budget to the lower-midrange line, is also served by other members such as the Y5 and Y6. These devices, however, have not been replenished with their p counterparts, but that is about to change.
According to leaks that were posted on Twitter, the Y6p and Y5p exist, but they haven’t been made official yet. The leak goes an extra mile by posting the devices’ specifications, or at least some of them.
The Y5p is the cheapest of the duo with a compact 5.45” screen with an HD+ resolution. It has no fancy screen cutouts – although it is served by a selfless chin and forehead. It is powered by the MTK P22 chip and is expected to ship with 32 GB of space and 2 GB of RAM.
Its dual-cam set up has an 8 MP sensor and another unknown snapper. The selfie MP count has not been given. The package is juiced by a 3020 mAh battery. It also runs Android 10 and EMUI 10.1 – unlike the Y7p that runs Android 9 Pie.
The Y6p, on the other hand, has a bigger 6.3” display that runs at FHD+. That is a higher resolution than even the Y7p that is capped at HD+. The chip is the same Helio P22.
The screen has a small notch for the 8 MP front shooter. At the rear, we expect three snappers: 13 MP main shooter alongside a 2 MP and 5 MP camera. Android 10 and EMUI 10.1 run the show.
Judging from history, it is very likely these phones will make their way here.
