Last month we received some info on an upcoming Huawei Y8s with an actual notch on the front and a dual camera on the back. Today the device is finally official – it was listed on Huawei’s website in the Arab country of Jordan.
The phone brings a 6.5” LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution. It has a relatively small notch on the top, where we have two selfie cameras on both sides of the earpiece. There is a main 8 MP f/2.0 shooter, assisted by 2 MP f/2.4 depth sensor for background blur.
The main cameras are also two – while the secondary snapper is the very same as the one on the front, the main shooter is 48 MP with an f/1.8 aperture. They are both lined vertically and have an LED flash to keep them company in a black rectangle setup.
The Huawei Y8s comes with a Kirin 710 chipset and 4 GB RAM, but there are two memory options – 64 GB and 128 GB, both with support for MicroSD. The battery of the phone is 4,000 mAh, but sadly, it charges through a microUSB port. The OS also isn’t ideal – Android Pie with EMUI 9.1 on top, but at least it has Google services.
Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
