Two variants of the upcoming Huawei Y6 (2019) were spotted at the US FCC earlier this month. One of the two variants that appeared on the FCC website, MRD-LX1 has now been spotted on the popular Geekbench benchmark database. The Geekbench listing also includes a reference to the MRD-L21A, which could be the global variant of the handset.
Huawei Y6 (2019) to Run on Entry-Level MediaTek 6761 Chipset
The Geekbench listing tells us the Huawei Y6 (2019) will be powered by a MediaTek MT6761V quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz. In the memory department, Huawei’s upcoming entry-level Android smartphone will pack 2GB of RAM. Apart from the chipset and RAM, the Geekbench benchmark listing reveals the smartphone is currently being tested on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. This means the smartphone will debut with Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box. In terms of performance, the handset achieved 842 points in the single-core test and 2,443 points in the multi-core test.
The FCC filings had revealed the handset will pack a 3000mAh capacity battery and come with a TÜV Rheinland certified ‘low blue light’ display. Its other key hardware specifications, however, have not been revealed just yet. Going by the information revealed by Geekbench, we can expect it to be relatively similar to other entry-level smartphones released by the manufacturer recently. In the camera department, the Y6 (2019) may feature a dual-camera setup on the back, possibly a 13MP + 2MP setup similar to the one seen on the Y7 Prime (2019). In terms of design, the handset may come with a waterdrop notch display with slim bezels on all sides. However, since it will be an entry-level smartphone, there is a possibility of it featuring a wide notch as well. We expect the smartphone to be made official within the next few weeks.
