Huawei today decided to quietly introduce a new mid-range smartphone called Huawei Y8p. However, it is not a "new" handset. Not if you're familiar with the Huawei Enjoy 10s. Apparently this handset is offered in certain regions, while others get the Enjoy 10s handset.
Huawei Y8p specifications
The Huawei Y8p is powered by the Kirin 710F SoC, which is equipped with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB RAM internal memory. If you need more RAM, there is a variant with 6 GB RAM. However, 128 GB of storage is the maximum you can get. Unless you have a nano memory card that is exclusively available for Huawei smartphones and is hard to find outside of China.
The technical data are based on a 6.3-inch OLED display with FHD + resolution. The handset has a built-in fingerprint scanner. In addition, there is a water drop notch at the top that contains a 16 megapixel selfie snapper. When we move backwards, we have a triple camera setup consisting of 48-megapixel main, 8-megapixel ultrawide and 2-megapixel depth modules.
The phone is shipped immediately with Android 10 based EMUI 10.1. Unfortunately, there are no Google services on board, so you have to rely on Huawei Mobile Services. The Huawei Y8p is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery. However, the charge rate is a real letdown. Despite the USB-C connection, you are limited to the 10 W charge rate.
Pricing and Availability
The company offers the smartphone in the colors Breathing Crystal and Midnight Black. The handset is available in Belarus for around 245 euros. Shipping starts on May 29, but customers can get a 99% discount on a Huawei Band 4 Pro by pre-ordering the phone by May 28.
