Highlights of the Story

  • The company hasn’t made the pricing go official and neither its availability.
  • It is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone.
  • The Huawei Y8s is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset.

As a ritual of updating its smartphone portfolio frequently, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has added yet another member to its ‘Y-series’ after the Huawei Y5p and Huawei Y6p. The new Huawei Y8s is only launched in China, with no word either on its pricing nor its availability in India.  

Huawei Y8s Specifications

From the spec-sheet we can assume the device to be a budget smartphone. So, there’s a giant 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. Surprisingly, the device still ships with a considerably larger notch. It feels even more dated when we consider that most manufacturers have started to replace smaller waterdrop notches by punch-hole camera systems in their devices.

Under the hood is a 1.7GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset (4 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 4 cores clocked at 1.7GHz) which is clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage expandable with a microSD card (up to 512GB). The device runs on EMUI 9.1 on top of Android Pie, which now feels old-school.
