Huawei has launched a slightly more affordable version of the Y6 Pro 2019, which comes with lesser RAM.
The Y6 2019 looks the same as its more expensive sibling, but it features a fingerprint sensor on the back, unlike its more expensive sibling, which is weird, to say the least.
That said, it does feature a nice looking design with its 6.09-inch dew drop display, at an 87% screen-to-body ratio.
Let’s see how it stacks up against its predecessor, the Y6 2018.
Design and Display
The Huawei Y6 2019 features a 6.09-inch HD+ (720 x 1560) display, with a dew-drop notch and an impressive 87 percent screen to body ratio.
In comparison with the Y6 (2018), the design has definitely gone up a notch (no pun intended). The phone features a fingerprint sensor at the back with a vertical camera module, which gives it a distinct look over its predecessor.
It comes in three colors: Amber brown, sapphire blue, and midnight black. The amber brown has a faux (fake) leather finish while the other two colors have a metallic finish.
Internals and Storage
The Y6 (2019) is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC coupled with a PowerVR GE 8320 GPU. The processor isn’t anything to write home about, but it should be good enough for entry-level workloads.
It comes with 2 GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, this can be expanded to 512 GB with a memory card.
Apart from that, Huawei Y6 (2019) runs on Android 9 Pie with Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 skin.
The rear camera isn’t very different from its predecessor, with a single 13MP camera on the back. Coming to the front camera, it is 8MP with an f/2.0 aperture.
The front camera can be used for face unlock.
Battery and Price
The battery (3,020 mAh) of Huawei Y6 (2019) is not its best feature but should provide reasonable operating time.
The smartphone has not yet been released in the market, but you can expect it to cost less than the $135 Y6 Pro 2019.
