And just about as Huawei as you could expect.
Huawei was once a giant in the smartphone space that got toppled thanks to political visions. However, that doesn’t stop them from developing new technologies and making new smartphones, as well as deals from other companies. If you could notice, Wiko and Honor appear to have been “borrowing” their designs, and Wiko announced last February that some of Huawei’s design smartphones would be branded to them with Google services and 5G as they are not blacklisted. We’re yet to see where this company is now though as they barely had any announcement since the Wiko 10.
Going back to Huawei, the company announced a new phone called the Enjoy 60 with a pretty attractive design. It’s got gold lined in the camera and in the logo so it is bound to be expensive. Well, thankfully this isn’t the case. It’s pretty, it’s premium, and thankfully the price is affordable. Well that’s because the phone has budget specs. Don’t look beyond the cover, fellow techies. There’s nothing in there.
The display is lackluster, only a 6.75″ HD+ screen and no high refresh rates either. It has an ageing Kirin 710A chipset inside (Oh, remember them?) with 8GB RAM and a choice between 128 or 256GB storage. You also get a 48MP+2MP setup and an 8MP front camera. Thankfully, the phone has a massive 6000mAh battery but you’re stuck to just 22.5W charging. We can’t wait until Honor resells this thing as one of the X series of budget phones. We’re gonna get there eventually.
It is priced at CNY 1,299 (~Php 10.5K) for the 8/128 trim and CNY 1,499 (~Php 12.1K) for the 8/256 trim respectively. There are three colours: Black, Blue, and Gold. Slim pickins. It’s only available in China right now.
By the way, Huawei still has a massive presence in the Philippines but we don’t think they still create live events for their budget phones.
