Huawei, the popular Chinese brand, is flooding the smartphone market with continuous induction of new and upgraded variants of earlier devices. The latest such addition is a Y-series device dubbed as the Huawei Y6 2018 with full-view display as the selling point.
Huawei Y6 2018 – Features
The Huawei Y6 2018 is a perfect budget devices that gives you value for your money and perhaps even more. The device features a 5.7-inch HD+ display with 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio.
Huawei has powered the Y6 2018 with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset clocked at 1.8GHz with graphics controller Adreno 506 GPU. We consider an efficient GPU may bring an FHD+ visual experience on an HD+ panel.
The processor is backed by a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB by using the dedicated microSD card slot located on the left side of the phone.
On the camera front, the Huawei Y6 2018 is packed with a single 13MP lens at the rear positioned on the top left corner. One may be disguised to consider the camera as the dual lens by the design features but it actually carried a single sensor with an LED flash by the side.
Huawei has placed a 5MP selfie camera on the front that is equipped with some AR features for tweaking the photos. Huawei hints the device packs the Face unlock technology as there is no sign of fingerprint sensor on either sides.
The Y6 2018 is a dual SIM supported device that runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with Huawei’s own EMUI 8.0 on the top. A decent 3000 mAh battery unit is also there to keep the lights on; with no quick charging options though.
Huawei Y6 2018 – Pricing and Availability
Although Huawei has not officially shared a word on pricing factor of the budget device but we expect to see Huawei Y6 2018 in Black, Blue and Gold colors with price tag of $150. The Philippines and Russia would be the first ones to welcome Y6 2018 in coming days. Stay tuned to know exact release date and price tag for your country or region.
