The 5-inch smartphone is expected to carry a very high capacity 4000 mAh battery.

The current Huawei Enjoy 5 is already available in China and may be renamed to the Y6 Pro if it launches internationally according to WinFuture.

If specifications remain unchanged, then the Y6 Pro will have:

  • 5-inch 720p display
  • 1.3 GHz 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P SoC
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 8 GB eMMC with MicroSD reader
  • 13 MP rear camera with up to 720p recording
  • LTE up to 150 Mbps and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • Dual SIM
  • 9.9 mm thickness, 160 g weight

Though a 16 GB model should exist, the source is unsure if it will be made available outside of China. The specifications alone place the Y6 Pro in the lower mid-range end of the spectrum. Its battery capacity is unusually large at 4000 mAh compared to 3000 mAh in the costlier flagship LG G4 or 2700 mAh in the Nexus 5X.

We expect to hear more announcements from Huawei and others this CES in Las Vegas and MWC in Barcelona. The highly anticipated P9 flagship, for example, should make an appearance by the end of this quarter.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
