How many times have you found yourself begging for just a few more minutes of battery life at the end of a long day? It’s a common problem due to smartphones emphasising processing power and larger screens. Luckily, Huawei is coming to the rescue with the HUAWEI Y6p, the latest addition to the HUAWEI Y Series.

A flagship-grade battery

The HUAWEI Y6p boasts a large 5000 mAh battery that works in harmony with the company’s proprietary Power Saving mode. This helps to support even the most demanding power users with an extraordinary battery life, which on a single charge can provide up to 32 hours of video playback, 36 hours of 4G calling, or 20 hours of 4G web browsing.

Want to share some of your newfound battery power with a friend’s flailing phone? Reverse charging transforms the HUAWEI Y6p into a high-capacity power bank, allowing users to take full advantage of the massive battery to charge other devices, even when it is used as an external storage for another smartphone.

Incredible photography with the 13MP Triple Camera

In many ways the HUAWEI Y6p is redefining what an entry-level smartphone can do, not least because it features a Triple Camera that comprises a 13 MP main camera, 5 MP wide angle camera and a 2 MP depth camera. This setup is usually found in higher midrange phones, with these three cameras synergising to capture stunning photos in various scenarios, including wide angle photography and natural bokeh effects.

An 8 MP front camera is augmented with advanced beautification algorithms, offering custom options that help users capture gorgeous selfies.

6.3" Dewdrop Display

Your images can be viewed on the stylish 6.3" Dewdrop Display with an 88.4% screen-to-body ratio which provides a wide and immersive visual experience. The HUAWEI Y6p offers an HD+ resolution, with 1600 x 720 pixels give-or-take due to the rounded corners of the screen.

Strong & Smart Performance

Inside the HUAWEI Y6p offers 3 GB RAM to support multi-tasking demands, and includes 64 GB of internal storage for media and apps. If you know you are going to go hard on downloads or taking images, there’s an optional expansion slot that supports up to 512 GB of additional storage via microSD.

The device also runs on a powerful MTK Helio P22 octa-core processor, which provides all-round performance across productivity and entertainment use cases.

The HUAWEI Y6P runs on EMUI 10.1, providing access to the HUAWEI AppGallery, which can now boast 400 million active users worldwide. The latest EMUI operating system also includes new templates for users to easily create photo collages for sharing on social media, as well as a Simple Mode enlarges icons and font sizes for a simpler user interface.

What about a few more tricks the HUAWEI Y6P can pull off? How about a wireless FM radio that doesn’t require earbuds to receive stations? Or HUAWEI SuperSound which releases 88 dB of sound, 1.6 times louder than other phones? It’s a feature rich phone for consumers that require more.

Pricing and availability

The HUAWEI Y6p is available in South Africa in Phantom Purple, Emerald Green and Midnight Black, at a starting price of R3 299.
