There’s a new Y series budget smartphone besides the Huawei Y6p that was launched in Cambodia for $139 (around P7,024).
(Update, June 28: Our review of the Y5p is up! Read Huawei Y5p review: Is it a decent starter phone?)
(Update, May 21: It’s launched in the Philippines! Read Huawei Y5p, Y6p, MatePad T 8 start at P4,490 in the Philippines.)
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.
Inside is a 12nm-based MediaTek Helio P22 chip, paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
The Huawei Y5p also features a 3,020mAh battery, a 3.5mm audio jack, and — this one’s music to our ears — Android 10-based EMUI 10.1. The said latest EMUI version debuted at the global launch of the Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Plus.
