Youthful flair and power: Huawei launches latest Y series, Y6p and Y5p and MatePad T8 in the Philippines

Always being in touch with its audience is one of Huawei’s most remarkable qualities; doing so has enabled the tech brand to produce some of the most acclaimed products in the last half-decade, and this year is no different. By releasing a new set of entry-level devices in the Philippines this May 21st 2020, Huawei is once again poised to capture the attention of its user base — especially the younger ones.

With Huawei’s new edition of the Y Series and the MatePad T8, emphasis on value is on display more than ever, as these devices look and feel anything but basic. Offering modern stylistic flourishes and dynamic functionality at an incredibly affordable price point, it’ll be love at first sight for the notoriously picky millennials and Gen Z.

Huawei Y6p: Almighty all-rounder

Teens and young professionals are arguably the most tech-savvy demographic out there, so they’ll know fancy gimmicks on smartphones aren’t going to cut it.

Performance is the language that speaks to them, and the Huawei Y6p’s 64GB of ROM + 4GB of RAM and 5000mAh battery hits the sweet spot of speed + endurance that’s required for the media-heavy lifestyles they lead.

Throw in a triple rear camera system that handles a variety of shooting situations such as low-light environments, wide-angle scenes and bokeh photography, and the Y6p is suddenly a must-have. This recipe of performance and camera quality makes for incredibly fun TikTok and Kumu sessions, as more apps continue to push the envelope for lively self-expression. There’s more! To fully maximize your new Huawei Y6p, you can also download top gaming apps, shopping, social media, food delivery apps, such as Plants vs Zombies, Candy Crush Mania, Lazada, Viber, Viu, Kumu, and FoodPanda.

Three new color options – Emerald Green, Phantom Purple and Midnight Black – further reinforce the importance of personalized style.

Huawei Y5p: One-Handed Wonder

Full-screen chic isn’t normally what describes an entry-level phone, but that’s exactly what the Huawei Y5p is about — and more. Featuring a 5.45-inch FullView HD Display on a compact frame, comfort and enjoyment are at max levels for that optimal one-handed operation. The Y5p comes in three fashionable colors – Midnight Black, Phantom Blue and Mint Green – with a shifting color coat for extra allure.

The Y5p gets a new camera module in the form of an 8MP rear shooter with HDR mode, while the 5MP front camera features ambient light detection for great-looking selfies.

Huawei MatePad T8: Immersive Entertainment

Young people are all about the latest shows and movies these days so they don’t miss out on the pop culture references online, and what better way to catch up on all of them than with the Huawei MatePad T8? This slim and stylish tablet has a juggernaut octa-core chipset underneath its sleek 8-inch display, and more than enough power to last season-long marathons on apps like Viu, thanks to the phenomenal 5100mAh battery. The display itself has a fantastic 80% screen-to-body ratio, with an ergonomic and lightweight frame designed for comfortable all-day usage.

There’s also no shortage of smart features on the MatePad T8, with the latest EMUI 10 and face unlock built in for an exceptional user-friendly experience. The tablet also has kid-friendly features such as Kid’s Corner and Multi-layer Eye Protection, to the relief of parents everywhere.

Huawei AppGallery: Bigger and better every day

The new Y Series + MatePad T come pre-loaded with the AppGallery, Huawei’s official app distribution platform and the third-largest app store globally. All apps on the AppGallery work with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) as a framework, which seamlessly connects all Huawei devices. Every day the AppGallery grows bigger as more developers partner with Huawei, including all the top names like Facebook, Snapchat, and Viber for social apps, while Viu and iFlix offer a wide variety of media streaming titles. Online banking apps like PayMaya and Unionbank, news apps like GMA, ABS-CBN News and CNN and government services like SSS have landed in the AppGallery – with more on the way.

Huawei also partnered with Viu and livestreaming app Kumu to enrich the AppGallery and its users with a trove of entertainment apps – a fitting trio of titles that define the trendy online lifestyles of millennial/Gen Z users.
