Huawei Nova Y60 expected specs

The phone has already been launched in other markets like South Africa. It runs on EMUI 11.01 based on Android 10 open source using Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and the latest EMUI 10.1.

The Huawei nova Y60 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.

For the cameras,  the Huawei Nova Y60 has a triple rear camera setup featuring a 13-megapixel main camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. The selfie camera is an 8-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.

The phone also comes with a massive 5,000mAh battery. It will be available for Kshs 22,999. The Huawei nova Y60 pre-orders can be made on e-commerce platform Amaya here.
