Huawei has introduced a new Nova series mid-range smartphone Nova Y60 in South Africa. The phone comes with a MediaTek chipset and a triple rear camera setup. The main focus of the phone is on the battery life which should last for a day with ease. All in all, it is a decent package for the asking price.
The Nova Y60 sports a 6.6-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) LCD TFT display with a dew-drop notch. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek MT6765 aka Helio P35 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. It has a single 64GB storage option with support for microSD cards up to 512GB. The latter is helpful in expanding the phone's storage if the native capacity gets full.
The square-shaped triple-camera camera setup includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on the phone is an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture for taking selfies and attending video calls. The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging. The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It will boot EMUI 11.0.1 based on Android 10 out of the box.
Huawei has priced the Nova Y60 at ZAR 3,099 (about $208) for the sole 4GB/64GB configuration. It is available in Black and Crush Green color options.
