Huawei, after launching its flagship smartphones — P20 and P20 Pro, is now gearing up to launch a couple of budget smartphones. The images of the company’s three upcoming smartphones — Y3, Y5 Prime and Y6 (2018) have surfaced online.
Evan Blass has posted images of the Huawei’s budget Y-series of smartphones, giving us a glimpse at the design of Huawei’s Y3, Y5 Prime, and Y6 (2018).
In the leaked images, the Huawei Y3 2018 appears to have a metal finish design, but there’s a high possibility that the phone will have a plastic body. There are thick bezels surrounding the display, especially on the top and bottom and no fingerprint sensor appears on the device.
The volume rocker and power button are placed on the right side. On the back side, there’s a single camera, LED flash and a speaker grille. The leaked image doesn’t have capacitive navigation buttons, hinting that the phone will have on-screen buttons.
The Huawei Y5 Prime also appears to have been crafted out of metal. Compared to the Y3, the Y5 Prime seems to have a premium design language. There’s a single camera sensor on the back side, coupled with an LED flash.
Apart from these two, there’s Huawei Y6 (2018), which is expected to the premium device among the three. This device too could come with on-screen navigation buttons.
On the back side, the camera module is placed on the top-left corner. The camera sensor is placed along with an LED flash in a horizontal bar, giving it a look as if the phone carries a dual camera setup, although it doesn’t.
Surprisingly, there’s no fingerprint sensor on any of the three devices. However, there’s a possibility that the company could opt to offer a facial recognition feature. Even with face unlock support, the exclusion of a fingerprint sensor is an odd step.
While the specifications related to these devices have not been revealed in this new leak, previous leaked has revealed the specs of Huawei Y3. The phone is expected to carry a display with screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and powered by MediaTek MT6737 processor. It’ll have 1GB RAM and 8GB RAM, and will be running Android 8.1 Oreo and pack 2,200mAh battery.
The Huawei Y6 (2018) has already been announced by the company. However, the company has not yet revealed its pricing and availability details. The smartphone has a 5.7-inch HD+ display with 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It comes equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.
There’s a microSD card support for up to 256GB. For the photography, it comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calling. Running on Android Oreo out-of-the-box with EMUI 8.0 on top, the device is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
