The Huawei Y6 (2019) is a budget smartphone which arrived with designs that are quite unique. It comes in four different variants: Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, Modern Black and Amber Brown. Midnight Black is a dark and classic colour.

The dark matte colour of Modern Black features a soft, smooth faux-leather finish. Users will appreciate the craftsmanship and detail of this chic material.

The 8 MP front facing camera was paired up with an advanced Selfie Toning Flash 2.0, a front flash toning light assisted by screen light that enables users to capture a true, natural and accurate portrait even in low-light conditions. Users can also capture greatness with the 13MP rear camera. The wide f/1.8 aperture lens lets in 50% more light to enhance the quality and clarity of low-light shots.
