Huawei officially announced two new entry-level phones – the Huawei Y6p and Huawei Y5p along with the MatePad T8 tablet.
The Huawei Y6p has an HD+ resolution 6.3-inch IPS display with a waterdrop notch that houses its 8MP front camera. On the rear are three cameras with a 13MP main camera, along with a 5MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP depth sensor.
A MediaTek Helio P22 chipset powers the Y6p which is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Its storage, if lacking, is expandable.
The Y6p has a hefty 5000mAh battery which charges via a microUSB port. Out of the box, it runs on EMUI 10.1 which is based on Android 10 but like many Huawei devices nowadays, it doesn’t have Google Mobile Services (GMS).
The Huawei Y5p, on the other hand, is built around a TFT LCD 5.45-inch panel with 18:9 aspect ratio and bezels on the top and bottom. It is a more dated look, for sure.
As far as camera goes, the Y5p has two cameras, an 8MP rear shooter and a 5MP front camera.
It is powered by the same Helio P22 as the Y6p but this time comes with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. The latter is expandable via microSD card. Its battery is definitely smaller compared to the Y6p, with the Y5p packing a 3020mAh battery which also charges through a microUSB port.
The Y5p runs on Android 10 with EMUI 10.1 on top and again, HMS instead of GMS.
The Huawei Y6p comes in three colors – black, green, and purple and is priced at RON 799 (around PHP 9,000). The Huawei Y5p, on the other hand, is available in black, blue and mint and is available for RON 599 (around PHP 6,800).
It is uncertain whether the Huawei Y6p and Huawei Y5p will be available in other markets, more specifically, the Philippines. We’ll just have to wait and see.
