Looking at the remodeling of a device which was first introduced in 2015, Huawei Y6 2018 model is still an entry-level smartphone in all ramification. Even as it possesses 18:9 aspect ratio, face unlock feature and a host of others, it is still lacks the fingerprint sensor, which might be a little bit disappointing. However, there is a new model of this particular device called Huawei Y6 (2019).

Design and Display
The polycarbonate build material with matte finish is the first thing that proves that this device is an entry level device. There’s really nothing to say about the display featured on the Huawei Y6 (2018) as it is more or less just the conventional arrangements on budget smartphones. Moving further, it has just 1440 X 720 pixels stretched over a 5.7-inch screen. Be warned, the display is not of quality as you have in premium smartphones with not so vibrant colours.
Moving back to the body design, there is the SIM tray at the left, volume rocker and power button at the right as well as an audio jack at the top. The Huawei Y6 (2018) has solid ergonomics and acceptable aesthetics for the budget segment.
Camera and Battery
You expect nothing more than a 13MP camera at the rear for capturing your images with the help of dual-LED flash to make it look better. Your selfie game won’t get any nudge up but you’ll have to manage with a 5MP camera which should take okay pictures in enough light. You’ll have to rely on a 3000mAh battery to see you through the day on this device.
Hardware and Software
Underneath the skin, the Huawei Y6 (2018) sports Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 having four cores with a clock speed of 1.4GHz. Being a low budget chipset, performance is not quite as fast as that of flagships like Huawei P20 but does fit the memo on this one. As for handling graphics, you have an Adreno 308 GPU in charge.
In addition, there’s 2GB RAM combined with 16GB internal storage space. However, the expansion limit is set at 256GB using a MicroSD card. Running on the smartphone is an Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8 skin atop.
Price and Availability
Huawei Y6 (2018) is available on all stores nationwide with the price of this device starting from N40,000. This depends on your deal and location.
