Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) Review – Specs, Features and Price

Huawei recently has been churning out budget smartphones, beginning with the Huawei Y9 2019, Huawei Y6 Prime 2019, Y7 Prime 2019 and the Y5 Lite which share similarities with the Huawei Y6 Prime 2019.

The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is actually the latest smartphone from Huawei which can be classified as the successor to the 2015 Huawei Y6 Pro. Despite being a budget smartphone, the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 still comes in with some amazing specifications and features which we will be revealing in the preceding sections.

Design

The design is one of the interesting features that the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 arrives with. The body of the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is made of plastic, while the frames are made of aluminum. We believe the choice of a plastic body was the result of the low-cost of the smartphone, and though it is a plastic body, the device still looks premium.

The front of the smartphone is occupied by a huge 6.09-inch IPS LCD display which has a resolution of 720 x 1560 pixel and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The front also has a water drop notch which houses the selfie camera. Meanwhile, the speaker grill, indicator light, Proximity sensor, and the Ambient light are all slightly seated above the notch. On the top of the display, you will find a really slim bezel which houses the hidden selfie toning flash2.0.

The bottom side of the front of the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019, you will see a chin in which the company’s name (Huawei) is written. On the back side of the smartphone, there is a vertical single primary camera sensor which is positioned on the left-hand side. Under the primary camera, there is a powerful LED flash and unfortunately, there was no fingerprint sensor in sight, but for your biometric authentication/verification, you have the Face ID.

One of the reasons I admire the smartphone is because of its weight, the smartphone weighs 150 grams and measures  8mm in thickness. The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 also comes in two different color options, the Sapphire Blue, and the Midnight Black.

We have other specifications and features of the smartphone retain their ancestral positions, the 3.5mm jack, the charging port, and dual Nano SIM slot and the dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.

Camera

One of the cool specification I found on the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is its cameras. The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 has a total number of two cameras which take decent images and is made up of the single selfie camera sensor and the single primary camera sensor.

The selfie camera sensor which is comfortably seated in the notch on top of the screen is an 8-Megapixel camera sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The selfie camera can record videos of 1080p at 30fps.

Meanwhile, the primary camera sensor on the back of the smartphone is a single 13-Megapixel which has an f/1.8 aperture and comes with other features like the PDAF, HDR, Panorama and its powerful LED flash. The primary cameras are capable of recording videos of 30fps.

Performance

Under the hood, we have the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC holding the Huawei’s Y6 Pro 2019 performance at the center. The processor is a 12nm Chipset with a Quad-Core processor which runs at 2.0GHz and it also comes along with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Inside the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019, you will find a 32GB worth of internal storage as well as a 3GB RAM that will ensure a smooth and lag-free running of Applications. For those who the 32GB internal storage may not be enough for, there is no need to worry because you can further expand the storage with up to 512GB via a dedicated MicroSD card slot.

The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 runs on Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 which is based on the latest Android Operating System, the Android 9.0 Pie.

Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 also comes with lots of other specifications and features like the Huawei’s SuperSound AKA the Histen 5.0 which enhances the performance of the speaker’s quality and sound.

Network and connectivity entail the following; the 4G LTE, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, WiFi direct, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, GPS, FM Radio, and micro USB port.

Battery

There is a moderate 3020 mAh Non-removable Li-Ion battery which supply’s power to the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019. The plastic body build will certainly pose a trait to wireless charging technology, which is one of the reasons the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 didn’t feature any. We had expected to see a fast-charging technology since the wireless wasn’t possible, but unfortunately, we found none.

Other Features

  • FM ~ Yes,
  • 3.5mm Jack ~ Yes,
  • Expandable storage ~ Yes,
  • Triple Rear Cameras ~ No.

Huawei P30 Pro Price

The Huawei P30 Pro is actually a budget smartphone and comes with a starting price tag of $135 which is equivalent to N50,000 Naira for the 32GB internal storage with 3GB RAM configuration.
You can actually purchase this smartphone from most online stores or from some offline stores that are within your region.

Verdict

Like we earlier mentioned, the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is a budget smartphone which is targeted at budget-conscious customers in search of a smartphone with both good looks, large screen, good cameras, moderate performance, moderate battery life, and also runs with the latest Android Operating System, the Android Pie.

Considering the price tag the smartphone comes in with, you will find out it is actually a good bargain and the smartphone has what it takes to go head to head with other mid-range budget smartphones. If you are in search of a good budget smartphone, then you can add this smartphone to your watch list.
