In an interesting development, Chinese smartphone major Huawei has introduced a brand new entry-level smartphone called the Huawei Y6s. This new handset comes with Google Services installed which makes it clear that it is destined to be launched in markets outside of China. The Y6s comes with several interesting quirks — one of which is the use of a MediaTek processor – something that you do not usually see Huawei use on its devices. This, perhaps, is one way for the company to bypass the restrictions they have with the usage of Qualcomm and Google because of their U.S. connection. All said, the Huawei Y6s is not really a new device and the first images of this phone were leaked back in November 2019.
Huawei Y6s Specifications
As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Y6s is an entry-level handset and comes powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC. It comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory with a microSD card provided for additional storage. The display on the Y6s happens to be a 6.09-inch LCD panel with HD+ resolution in the 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Moving on to the cameras, the phone gets by with a single camera at the rear that uses a 13-megapixel sensor and is mated to an f/1.8 aperture lens. At the front, the phone uses an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 camera. The rear panel also gets a fingerprint scanner. The phone uses a fairly large-sized 3020 mAh battery with no support for fast charging. The phone runs EMUI 9 atop an Android 9 Pie core.
We still do not know which markets would see the launch of the Huawei Y6s. There is a good chance that the handset would make it to India as well. The phone, if launched in India, would have to be priced under the INR 10K mark for it to sell.
