July 23, 2015 - Written By John Anon

Huawei is a company on the rise. They are already pretty well known in the smartphone industry and do seem to be cementing themselves as one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world. The latest report which emerged from the IDC this morning, further highlights this as it was reported that Huawei had managed to ship 29.9 million units in Q2 of 2015. This was quite the rise compared to last year and actually showed them to have the biggest year-on-year change of all the main manufacturers. Of course, part of their success comes from the number of good quality devices they are outputting of late.

Well, another device from Huawei is doing the rumor rounds and is currently being dubbed the Huawei Y6 Scale. In terms of the specs being rumored to come with the Y6 Scale, there is a 5-inch display which comes touting a 1280 x 720 resolution. Inside, the Y6 Scale is rumored to come with 1GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor. In terms of cameras, the Y6 Scale is reported to come equipped with an 8-megapixel camera which is coupled with a 2-megapixel front facing option. Internal storage is set as 8GB, although it is expected to come equipped with a microSD card slot for additional storage when needed. Additional features on offer include WiFi, Bluetooth and 4G LTE support. The Y6 is expected to come with a 2,200mAh battery and come running on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. With Huawei’s Emotion UI on top of course.

Beyond the rumored specs, nothing seems to be concrete about what to expect with the actual build. The device is said to be plastic based although little is known besides what is shown in the reported image of the device below. There also does not seem to be any firm details on what the likely price of the Y6 Scale will be, although it is being suggested it might be available around the 150 Euro ($165) marker. There are no details at all in terms of availability or where the device will be available to buy. However, it is being reported that it will likely debut on July 30th. So chances are, more will become known soon enough.
