After a two week pre-order period, the Huawei Y6s is finally available in retail stores in Kenya for Ksh 13,999. This is the second smartphone Huawei is launching in Kenya in 2020, the first one was the Nova 5T that is doing really well in stores.
The Huawei Y6s is the successor to the Y6 Prime from last year. This was a good phone for its price and now it is getting an updated version for 2020. Given that we have not seen most of the top manufacturers launch new devices within this price range this year, the Huawei Y6s has all the attention of phone buyers looking for devices within this price range.
I did an unboxing post of the Huawei Y6s that you can check out here.
Speaking of the new device, Huawei Mobile Kenya Country Head, Jim said, “The introduction of the Huawei Y6s in the market is part of our strategy to target users who are looking for a budget device that offers unique experience that meets their needs and requirement. As we aim at positioning ourselves as the world’s number leader in the device category we are keen at ensuring that we provide devices that meet the needs of these consumers.”
