Huawei Y8p and Huawei Y6p Pre-order Kenya

Update: Huawei Y8p FULL REVIEW


After the pre-order period, Huawei has now announced that the Y8p and the Y6p are on sale countrywide through retail shops, and online through Jumia. The prices of the devices as recommended by Huawei are:

  • Huawei Y8p – KES. 24,999
  • Huawei Y6p – KES. 14,999

In the pre-order announcement, we already shared on how these are pretty competitive prices, and how the Huawei Y8p brings competition to this sort of lower-midrange class of phones:

The Y8p could currently be the cheapest device with an on-screen fingerprint scanner. Huawei is continuing its push for good specs at low prices in an effort to lure more users into their Google-free ecosystem.

If you’re ready to jump ship and try out Huawei’s ecosystem without Google, these are pretty compelling devices to consider. Especially when you think of the value for money because of the specifications. Check out the specs down below for both devices.

Speaking of the launch, Huawei Mobile Kenya Country Head Jim Zhujie said, “One look at the HUAWEI Y8p and its clear that this is more than a middle level smartphone. Adopting a 48MP AI Triple Camera setup, solid performance with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and an impressive 6.3-inch OLED Huawei Dewdrop Display, this new smartphone brings to the segment features that were seen before only on higher segment devices. While the second device introduced to the series HUAWEI Y6p, takes a more performance focused approach. While it also packs a 13MP main camera, 3GB of RAM and a big 6.3-inch HUAWEI Dewdrop display, the key feature here is actually its 5000mAh battery.”
