Huawei has expanded its product portfolio by adding the Huawei Y6 (2018) to the list. The Y6 (2018) which may not launch in the Indian market anytime soon will be heading to the Philippines and Russian markets in the next few weeks. The device is now listed on the company’s official website, hinting at an imminent launch. And as usual, the listing doesn’t have any pricing mentioned, but the device will retail for under $200, considering Huawei’s aggressive pricing strategy. The specifications of the smartphone are nothing special, and they’re in-line with the Honor 7C smartphone, which was launched in the Chinese market at the start of March 2018. This launch from Huawei comes right after the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 launch.
The Huawei Y6 (2018) packs a unibody and features a 5.7-inch HD+ display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. The device is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. It is backed by a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via micro SD card slot.. The Huawei Y6 (2018) runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with company’s EMUI 8.0 running on top of it. The device is juiced by a 3000mAh battery and support connectivity options like 4G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, Glonass, micro USB port and dual-SIM support. The phone measures 152.4 x 73 x 7.8mm and weighs 150 grams.
On the camera aspect, the Huawei budget smartphone packs a 13MP rear sensor which is located at the top left corner. The rear camera actually looks like it is a dual lens setup but there is only one sensor with an LED flash by the side. The Huawei logo is located at the bottom and there is no fingerprint sensor. The smartphone features face unlocking technology instead of the fingerprint sensor. The absence of a home button at the front effectively means the device doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor. You don’t need to fret even though this is a budget model. Huawei hints the device packs the Face unlock technology. There is also a 5MP selfie camera onboard with some AR features for tweaking the photos.
