Huawei recently launched the Y7 Pro (2019) entry-level smartphone, a direct successor to the Y7 Pro (2018). In the coming weeks, the world’s second biggest smartphone maker is expected to launch a few more Y series smartphones, including the Y6 (2019). Two variants of the upcoming Y6 (2019) entry-level Android smartphone have been spotted on the FCC website, hinting at an imminent launch.
Huawei Y6 (2019) to Launch Soon?
Two Huawei Y6 (2019) variants have been spotted on the FCC website: MRD-LX1 and MRD-LX3. According to the FCC filings, Huawei’s upcoming Y6 (2019) will be more or less identical to its predecessor in the battery life department. The Y6 (2019) will pack a 2920mAh battery, which is actually the minimum rated capacity. Its typical capacity will be 3000mAh, identical to the Y6 (2018). Even though the battery size will not be any different, the Y6 (2019) might offer slightly better battery life in case the handset is powered by a newer and more efficient chipset. Sadly though, the FCC filings do not include any clue regarding the processor powering the smartphone.
The current Huawei Y6 (2018) is powered by a 28nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor under the hood. There is a possibility that the upcoming Y6 (2019) might run on a newer 14nm Snapdragon chipset, which should allow it to deliver slightly better battery life compared to last year’s model. Moving on to connectivity, the FCC filings reveal the handset will support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, FM radio, and 4G LTE. Additionally, the smartphone will include a microSD card slot, dual SIM card slots, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. While the display size and resolution remain a mystery at this point, the FCC filings reveal the Y6 (2019) will feature TÜV Rheinland certification for being a ‘low blue light’ device. This means the smartphone’s display will filter out harmful blue light. While the Y6 (2018) was introduced in April last year, its successor is likely to be launched sometime in the coming weeks.
