Huawei has two new budget-friendly smartphones nearing launch: the Huawei Y5P and Huawei Y6P. Press renders and key specs of the two devices have now leaked online.
Huawei Y5P renders and specs leak
The upcoming Huawei Y5P is the company’s new entry-level offering. It features a 5.45-inch LCD display with HD+ (1440 x 720) resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display doesn’t have a notch housing the front-facing sensors and the selfie camera, which is a 5-megapixel sensor.
Huawei has instead opted for huge bezels here, a design which is obsolete now. On the back of this phone is a single 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash.
Under the hood of the Huawei Y5P is the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC with a paltry 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. It does have a dedicated MicroSD slot that supports cards of up to 512GB capacity. It also comes with dual SIM support.
A 3,020mAh battery fuels this phone, with Huawei promising 10W fast charging via a Micro-USB slot. It boots the Android 10-based EMUI 10.1 out of the box. The images accompanying the leak reveal that the Huawei Y5P gets a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. There’s no fingerprint reader on this phone, which isn’t surprising given its positioning in the market.
The Huawei Y5P has a dimension of 146.5×70.94×8.35 mm and weighs 144 grams. It appears this phone is a rebranded version of the Honor 9S, which was announced late last month. It packs the exact same specs. A patterned back panel is seemingly the only change on the new phone.
So it should be priced pretty similarly as well. The Honor 9S is listed on the Honor Russia website with a price of RUB6,990 (roughly $95). The Huawei Y5P comes in Midnight Black, Phantom Blue, and Mint Green color options.
Huawei Y6P packs better specs
The Huawei Y6P is significantly better specced than the Huawei Y5P. It features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ (1600 x 720) LCD display with a waterdrop notch. The tiny notch houses an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
This phone also has a triple camera setup on the back. The vertically stacked camera array consists of a 13-megapixel, a 5-megapixel, and a 2-megapixel sensor. The back panel also houses a capacitive fingerprint reader.
The Huawei Y6P is powered by the same MediaTek Helio P22 SoC as the Huawei Y5P. However, it gets more RAM and storage capacity. There’s 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable by up to 512GB via a MicroSD card. Dual-SIM support, 35.mm headphone jack, and Android 10 OS are on board this phone.
This phone also gets a much bigger 5,000mAh battery that charges via a Micro-USB port. It’s unclear if it’ll support the same 10W fast charging or Huawei will improve things here as well.
The Huawei Y6P has a dimension of 159.07×74.06×9.04 mm and weighs 185 grams. This phone also looks a lot like the Honor 9A, which costs RUB10,990 (roughly $150) in Russia. Huawei is prepping the Y6P in Hot Black, Hot Purple, and Hot Green color.
There’s no word yet on when the Chinese company plans to release its new budget-friendly phones. It also remains to be seen if they’ll be limited to certain markets or will be made available globally.
