There’s a new Y series budget smartphone besides the Huawei Y6p that was launched in Cambodia for $139 (around P7,024).

The Huawei Y5p is now official in Romania, retailing at lei 599 (P6,800 or $135). It will probably cost between P6,000 ($119) and P7,000 ($138) if and when it arrives in the Philippines.

From the front, it looks like phones from more than a year ago, what with its wide bezels. The 5.45-inch screen is also a bit small by today’s standard. But flip it over, and you’ll see a modern rear design. The look of the camera is something like the one on the popular Huawei Nova 7i. There’s only one camera, though, and it has 8 megapixels. A 5-megapixel shooter takes care of selfies.
