Huawei decided today to quietly unveil a new mid-range smartphone dubbed Huawei Y8p. However, it’s not actually a “new” handset. Not if you’re familiar with the Huawei Enjoy 10s. Apparently, this handset will be offered in some specific regions, while others will get the Enjoy 10s handset.
Huawei Y8p specifications
The Huawei Y8p is powered by the Kirin 710F SoC that comes coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. If you need more RAM, there is a variant with 6GB of RAM. However, 128GB storage is the maximum you can get. Unless that you have a Nano memory card, something exclusive to Huawei smartphones and that is hard to find outside of China.
The specifications are built around a 6.3-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution. The handset boasts an in-display fingerprint scanner. Moreover, there is a waterdrop notch at the top housing a 16MP selfie snapper. Moving around to the back we have a triple camera setup comprising a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide, and 2MP depth modules.
The phone ships with Android 10-based EMUI 10.1 straight out of the box. Unfortunately, there’s no Google Services onboard, meaning that you’ll have to rely on Huawei Mobile Services. The Huawei Y8p draws power from a 4,000mAh battery, however, the charging rate is a true disappointment. Despite the USB-C port, you’ll be limited to the 10W charging rate.
Pricing and Availability
The company is offering the smartphone in Breathing Crystal and Midnight Black colors. The handset is being offered in Belarus for around 245 Euros. Shipments start on May 29, but costumers can get a 99% discount on a Huawei Band 4 Pro by pre-ordering the phone until May 28.
