Huawei Nova Y60 With 5,000mAh Battery Launching in Kenya this December

Huawei Mobile Kenya has announced plans to launch the Huawei Nova Y60 smartphone in the Kenyan market in early December. 

The mid-range device is a new branch of the HUAWEI nova series, integrating the nova and Y series. Huawei says the nova series is a design-focus lineup offering stylish design and affordable flagship features, while the Y series is designed to make Huawei’s innovations accessible to all consumers, especially for those who do not want to spend too much on a smartphone. By merging these two popular series, Huawei says it is going to clink the mid-range market and provide more product options to consumers.

Jim Zhijue,  Huawei Country head says there are quite a number of smartphones the company will be bringing to the Kenyan market in the next few months. ‘’Among them is an interesting option that you might be excited about, the Huawei Nova Y60,’’ he says.

‘’We are glad to launch the smartphone during the festive season when each one of us is looking for something to gift our loved ones.”

The phone has already been launched in other markets like South Africa. It runs on EMUI 11.01 based on Android 10 and features a 6.6-inch HD+ (720×1,600 pixels) TFT LCD display. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) SoC and packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
