Huawei Y6 (2019) Features, Specifications

Unsurprisingly, the new Y6 (2019) is very similar to the Y6 Pro (2019) both in terms of design as well as hardware specifications. It comes with a 6.09-inch Dewdrop display featuring 720 x 1560 Full HD+ resolution and a claimed 87% screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone is capable of blocking out harmful blue light and comes with TÜV Rheinland certification. The Huawei Y6 (2019) runs on a 12nm MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. In terms of memory, the smartphone includes 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Thanks to a microSD card slot, users can expand the storage further by up to 512GB.

For optics, the Y6 (2019) has a 13MP rear camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture lens and an 8MP selfie camera with Selfie Toning Flash 2.0. Connectivity features supported by the entry-level smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, FM radio, and 4G VoLTE. Thanks to Huawei SuperSound, the Y6 (2019) is claimed to produce an additional 6db of sound with stronger bass effects when compared to most of its rivals.

In terms of battery life as well, the Y6 (2019) should be more or less identical to the Y6 Pro (2019). Both smartphones pack a 3020mAh capacity battery with intelligent battery optimization. Unlike the Pro variant, however, the Y6 (2019) comes with both a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and face unlocking. The smartphone will ship with Huawei’s custom EMUI 9.0 running atop Android 9.0 Pie. EMUI 9.0 comes with quite a few new features such as full screen gesture navigation, an intelligent Phone Manager, system speed enhancements, and more. Color options include Sapphire Blue, Midnight Black, and Amber Brown. The Amber Brown variant comes with a faux leather design that is said to be both anti-fingerprint and fashionable.
