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. However, the Sapphire Blue has this new material that hides reflective particles as small as 15 microns to diffract light and produce a bright colourful effect. 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. As for the Amber Brown, it has a faux-leather design and a type of material that is both anti-fingerprint and fashionable. Amber Brown is a distinct style that will catch all the attention. The Huawei Y6 (2019) measures 8 mm in thickness and weighs 150 g. As for the display, the Huawei Y6 (2019) has a 6.09" Dewdrop HD+ display. This wide screen with a 87% screen-to-body ratio provides a great display for videos, photos and favourite books. The Huawei Y6 (2019) also blocks out harmful blue light and is TÜV Rheinland certified. 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.

The 12nm chipset, 2GB RAM and large 32GB ROM expandable memory of the Huawei Y6 (2019) can store all content and has the ability to multitask smoothly. The Huawei Y6 (2019) leverages a 3020mAh battery with intelligent battery optimization. The software-hardware synergy works together to keep the phone going all day long. As for the operating system, the Huawei Y6 (2019) runs on EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie. EMUI 9.0 is a smart, simple and intuitive software upgrade. The full-screen gesture navigation and added system speed enhancements with an intelligent Phone Manager help to deliver an overall smoother experience. The Huawei Y6 (2019) also protects information with face unlocking and a fingerprint scanner. Face Unlock intelligently increases the brightness in low-light conditions to easily see user’s face. Conclusively, the Huawei Y6 (2019) is a budget phone that still delivers good features, such as a good-sized display, decent performance, good cameras and  Android Pie. It is suitable to be a teenage phone, elderly phone or a secondary phone on a budget. The Y series has always been the budget model for Huawei, but there are other choices in the same price range from Samsung, Xiaomi, and even Huawei’s own sub-brand, Honor.
