The Huawei Nova Y60 has been launched in South Africa, hitting the market as an able option in the mid-range smartphone price bracket. The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek processor, and despite its mid-range pricing, features premium elements such as a triple rear camera setup in a square module placed to the top left of the rear. The smartphone features a streamlined design language, giving it minimal aesthetics and bold colour variants to boot.
Huawei Nova Y60: price, availability
The Huawei Nova Y60 is already up for preorders in South Africa via the official Huawei website. Sales and shipments of the phone begins next week, from September 1. The smartphone has been launched in only one variant, with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which costs ZAR 3,099 (approx. Rs 15,000). Pre-order offers include either a Huawei wireless headset or a wireless mini speaker, free with the phone.
The Huawei Nova Y60 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC, along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The device gets a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a drop notch at the top. It runs EMUI 11.01 based on Android 10, and given that it runs on its old interface, it likely retains support for the Google Play Store, instead of featuring the Huawei app store.
Other key specifications include 13MP triple rear cameras with LED flash, which includes a 5MP ultra-wide camera. To the front, it features an 8MP camera for selfies. It also gets a 5,000mAh battery, a USB-C port for connectivity and charging, dual-band wi-fi, Bluetooth 5.1 and a 3.5mm audio port as well.
The Nova Y60 by Huawei features all the essential features of a mid-budget range smartphone, including a fingerprint sensor mounted on the power button at the side. It also claims to offer Histen powered 6.1 speaker technology to provide 3D panoramic surround sound experience with the phone’s built in speakers.
