First Look: Huawei Y6 Pro 2019
Here’s a new disruptor in the entry-level smartphone category: the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019! One of the latest devices to join from the brand’s Y series, the new Y6 Pro 2019 lets you create and explore.
We recently got our hands on the new Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 and it’s surprisingly premium-looking for its category. Our review unit came in the beautiful Sapphire Blue.
The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 features a symmetrical 2.5D curve design that gives it a truly premium feel. It weighs only 150 grams, and feels very light and handy.
Surprisingly, it features a 6.09-inch Dewdrop Display that is usually only seen in midrange to flagship devices. The barely noticeable notch houses the front camera, ambient light sensor, front flash, and a super-slim earpiece.
Given Huawei’s reputation for powerful cameras, we’re very excited to try its 13MP high-resolution rear camera. Although, obviously, it won’t be as sophisticated as the flagships P20 Pro of Mate 20 Pro, we are expecting to see crystal-clear shots under daylight.
Meanwhile, the Y6 Pro 2019’s 8MP front camera is said to carry smarter beautification algorithms for more natural results. It’s designed to emit a soft light from the front flash and screen when taking selfies under low light.
While we have yet to try this for ourselves, the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 boasts an immersive, theater-like audio. With Histen 5.0 HUAWEI SuperSound, excellent sound quality even at high volume levels is expected from this phone.
It has a smart power amplifier that can adapt to the surroundings in real-time, and configure an optimal audio quality output. I’m excited to play some music videos on full volume to see if I can have a party in my room with just the Y6 Pro.
Another surprising feature for an entry-level phone, the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is equipped with the latest OS. It runs on both Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 and Android 9.0 Pie. One key change is in the notifications. Instead of showing at the top, new notifications now display on the side to avoid disrupting the user.
Equipped with a large 3,020mAh battery, the Y6 Pro 2019 promises to run for long hours. It claims to run 10 hours in 4G network connection, play music non-stop for 73 hours, or stream local videos for 16 hours.
The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 also comes in Midnight Black. It will be available for pre-order from February 18 to 22, 2019, via Lazada for only P6,990.
