Chinese smartphone maker and telecommunications giant Huawei has just launched a new smartphone, the Huawei Y6 Prime (2019). It looks like the device will be similar to its sibling, the Huawei Y6 (2019) and the only likely change will be the name of the device along with a few internals. While comparing the Y6 Prime (2019) with the Huawei Y6 Prime (2018) we can see that there are significant changes both in the terms of the design and the usability of the device.
According to a report by GSMArena, the Huawei Y6 Prime (2019) will come with a 6.09-inch LCD panel with HD+ resolution along with the usual notch and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. Huawei has added an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the front for selfies and a 13-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a LED flash unit on the back for regular photos. It is worth noting that the front will also come with a “Selfie Toning Flash2.0” that will be hidden near the proximity sensor in the bezel of the device.
