Huawei is introducing the Huawei Y6p, Y8p, and the Y5p to the Pakistani market this month. The trio will go on pre-sale starting from June 22, and which each pre-order, Huawei will be doubling the deposit you make.

Huawei Y8p

The Y8p brings a quintessential Huawei design to the table: a high aspect ratio, Midnight Black, and Breathing Crystal colors, a capsule-shaped triple camera, and a well-polished chamfered build. Its 6.3” OLED DewDrop display produces a 90.17% screen-to-body ratio and an FHD+ resolution. Huawei has embedded inside this panel an ‘in-display’ fingerprint reader.

The camera on the back uses a 48MP main lens, a 2MP depth camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens.

The number-crunching is handled by the Kirin 710F platform and the EMUI 10.1 (based on Android 10). Backed by a 4,000 mAh battery, the Y8p is available in 4GB/6GB memory and 128GB storage (expandable up to 256GB with an NM card). WhatMobile expects the 6GB variant to cost around 35,000 to 38,000 rupees in Pakistan.

Huawei Y6p

The Huawei Y6p is already listed on Huawei Pakistan’s webpage, next to the Y8p because of its shared design language. Think of the Y6p as a pocket-friendlier version of the Y8p. Instead of an OLED panel, you get an IPS LCD HD+ screen, identical in size, and the dew-drop notch. 

Around the rear-facing panel, it’s the same story, except for the addition of a traditional fingerprint scanner. Instead of the duo-tone gradients, the phone features abstract, almost shimmering patterns in Phantom Purple, Emerald Green, and Midnight Black editions. 

The primary camera is watered down to 13MP,  the wide-angle lens to 5MP, while the bokeh sensor remains the same. The processor running behind the scenes is the previous-gen MediaTek Helio P22, rounded off by 3GB of memory and 64GB of storage. The battery capacity, however, is bumped up to a massive 5,000 mAh. The Huawei Y6p is expected to arrive carrying a price tag of 20,000 to 23,000 PKR.

Huawei Y5p

The Y5p is cheaper still — essentially an entry-level Huawei. If it wasn’t for its modern-looking paint job, you might mistake it for a model from at least three generations back. Forget the fancy bezel-free look; the Y5p features a screen encased in two blocks of bezels. The screen extends 5.45”, corner to corner, producing an HD+ display.

The rear-shell has a single camera, inside an odd layout — made to look like a twin-camera setup inside a squircle bump. The body is plastic, painted in Mint Green, Midnight Black, and Phantom Blue shades. Huawei is keeping the cost to the minimum by lopping off the fingerprint scanner.

Underneath the hood, there’s 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable up to 512GB), and a 3,020 mAh battery. The hardware may be dated, but the phone boots to the latest EMUI 10.1 (powered by Android 10). We anticipate the price of Huawei Y6p to be somewhere around 15,000 to 17,000 PKR
