It is official HUAWEI Y8p and Y6p is available in the market, each with its own set of features and innovations that make them stand out from the crowd. HUAWEI Y8p will be retailing at Kshs 24,999 while the HUAWEI Y6p will be retailing at Kshs 14,999 respectively. On shelf purchase will come with Bluetooth Headset as free gift for the first one week. The devices will be available in all retail stores across the country including Jumia Kenya.
Speaking of the launch, Huawei Mobile Kenya Country Head Jim Zhujie said, “One look at the HUAWEI Y8p and its clear that this is more than a middle level smartphone. Adopting a 48MP AI Triple Camera setup, solid performance with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and an impressive 6.3-inch OLED Huawei Dewdrop Display, this new smartphone brings to the segment features that were seen before only on higher segment devices. While the second device introduced to the series HUAWEI Y6p, takes a more performance focused approach. While it also packs a 13MP main camera, 3GB of RAM and a big 6.3-inch HUAWEI Dewdrop display, the key feature here is actually its 5000mAh battery.”
The HUAWEI Y8p boasts a 48MP AI Triple Camera that boasts a 48MP main camera, 8MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth camera for bokeh effects. However, the highlight of this camera lies in its low light shooting capabilities thanks to its support for the Super Night Photography. The HUAWEI Y8p’s camera setup uses its 1/2-inch sensor for better light sensitivity that improves brightness and details, while the on board AI helps in stabilizing the shot, resulting in a perfectly lit photo even in low-light conditions. On the other hand, users can enjoy taking wide angle shots with the 8MP wide-angle camera that boasts a 120 degree field of view that makes wide scenic shots and group photos easier to take, without having to crop anything or anyone out.
The HUAWEI Y6p’s large 5000mAh battery targeted at those users who do a lot more with their smartphones, requiring them to have a battery that is large enough to last for all their tasks. This battery is large enough to provide up to 32 hours of video playback or even 20 hours of Internet surfing on a single charge. It is further supported by the Huawei Power Saving mode to support more power. In addition to this, the HUAWEI Y6p can also function as a power bank to charge other devices and even act as a backup storage for other devices.
Both HUAWEI Y8p and HUAWEI Y6p come pre-installed with HUAWEI AppGallery. Huawei’s official app marketplace and the third largest app platform globally, this platform allows users to download a wide selection of global and local apps, and also enjoy a rich library of quality entertainment media on HUAWEI Video, HUAWEI Music and HUAWEI Reader, with new content from top providers being constantly updated.
With its sophisticated smartphone designs, solid performance features and powerful camera setups, the HUAWEI Y series devices are exactly what the entry-level segment needs to revitalize the segment as a whole. The new additions to the series, the HUAWEI Y8p and HUAWEI Y6p are perfect examples to this statement, making them two entry-level smartphones that have to be considered by those looking for a new phone.
