Here comes another entry-level contender for 2020! Huawei Philippines recently launched the Huawei Y6P – a new smartphone under Php 6,000 which already packs good features like a triple camera, 4+64GB of RAM and ROM, and 5,000mAh battery that are fit for a user’s daily mobile needs. It comes in three colors – Emerald Green, Midnight Black, and our favorite Phantom Purple – with a shiny finish.
At an affordable price point of Php 5,990, the Huawei Y6P is already capable of reverse charging in case we need juice for our other devices. This can come in handy since the Y6P can reportedly provide up to 32 hours of video playback on a single charge.
We’ve also seen sample photos from the Huawei Y6P and they’re decent for outdoor shots, thanks to its 13MP main camera, 5 MP wide angle camera, and 2MP depth camera. In front, it houses an 8MP front camera augmented with advanced beautification algorithms for better selfies.
Compared with previous releases, what’s new about this new smartphone is the Huawei EROFS on EMUI 10.1, which improves random read speed and response rate. It can provide around 2GB of additional storage for storing 1,000 more images or 500 more audio files. The latest EMUI operating system also includes new templates for users to easily create photo collages for sharing on social media, as well as a Simple Mode enlarges icons and font sizes for a simpler user interface.
