In Phones by Alora Uy GuerreroLeave a Comment

We were checking a post on our site when a Huawei Together 2020 ad revealing a new pair of wireless earbuds and a probable Huawei Watch GT 2 sale inadvertently led us to discover that the Huawei Y6s is real and that it’s coming to the Philippines soon.

(Update, November 24: Philippine retailer Tekpone has revealed more details about the phone! See Huawei Y6s priced at P6,990 [$137] in the Philippines.)

See that ad on the right side? That led us to the information that the Huawei Y6s will be launching in the Philippines soon. Plus: Hello, FreeBuds 3 announcement, Watch GT 2 special-price promotion, and Mate 30 Pro bundle? Promo period supposedly starts November 30, 2019, and ends January 5, 2020

The smartphone has been the subject of rumors recently, with technology site Android Headlines publishing leaks of the Y6s’ design.

Well, guess what? They were spot on. The Huawei Y6s indeed features a screen with a waterdrop-style notch and a two-tone back that reminds us of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 and the new version of the P30 Pro models.

Plastered horizontally on the chin and vertically on the lower-left side of the rear panel is the company’s branding. There’s a single camera on the upper left and a fingerprint sensor in the middle.

Here’s what we at Revü spotted: The page confirming that there is a Huawei Y6s and that this is how it looks

Word has it that like on the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019, the display measures 6.1 inches; the camera on the back is 13 megapixels; and the memory configuration is 3GB RAM + 32GB storage.

The suggested retail price of the Y6 Pro 2019 recently dropped from P5,990 (around $118) to P5,490 ($108), so our guess is the Y6s will get the P5,990 ($118) SRP or the former’s P6,990 ($137) price at launch.

Android Headlines also leaked another still-unannounced yet more premium phone code-named Merida. The device has a dewdrop notch, too, but the chin is devoid of any branding. There’s an extra sensor in the rear camera setup and wording that says “AI Camera.”

Hmm, it could be the successor to the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019, considering that the latter was introduced with the Y6 in February 2019. To jog your memory, the Y7 initially sold for P9,990 ($196), but now costs P6,990 ($137).

What could this Huawei ‘Merida’ be? Will it be launched alongside the Huawei Y6s in the Philippines?

Huawei Philippines has scheduled an event on November 27. There’s a big chance we’ll see the Huawei 6s launched on that day. And probably this Merida, too? What do you think?
