Huawei Announces Y8s with Conventional Notch and Two Front Cameras

An updated Nova 3i?

Wrapping up Huawei’s slew of releases today is the Y8s. Unlike Huawei’s recent releases that utilize a punch-hole, the Y8s adopts a conventional notch that houses two front cameras: an 8-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Upfront, it looks like an updated Nova 3i with its smaller notch and a bigger 6.5-inch display. The Y7s has roughly the same internals with the Nova 3i: Kirin 710, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage.

As an “updated” Nova 3i, the dual rear camera setup now comprises of an 48-megapixel main snapper and 2-megapixel depth sensor. The battery is bigger at 4000mAh, though you are stuck with a MicroUSB port and 10w wired charging. Making this phone intriguing is that it comes with Android Pie-based EMUI 9.1–and it has Google services.

  1. This is the workaround if you want a huawei/honor phone with google mobile services, re-release previous models with slight upgrades. The US government should just let huawei do their thing with gms.
