The Huawei Y9 PRIME is available in the Kenyan market starting at KES. 24,999 for 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with a KIRIN 710F processor. It is a good deal, and great value for money.
The Huawei P30 LITE has been available in the Kenyan market for a while now. There’s a 6GB RAM variant and a 4GB RAM option too.
In Safaricom Shops, the P30 Lite is available as a SINGLE-SIM device, but the pricing is quite high compared to if you pick it up from Jumia.
