Huawei launches its Ksh 13,499 Y6 2019 to end Infinix & TECNO’s reign


TECNO and Infinix, brands from China’s Transsion Holdings have been the most popular affordable smartphones in Kenya, taking up to more than 40 percent of the middle and low range mobile market segments.

However, Infinix and TECNO are steadily losing out their market share because price is no longer their USP and their devices are substandard and not durable. Huawei is the beneficiary of Transsion Holdings’ mistakes.

Huawei Mobile Kenya has just unveiled Y6 2019 in the market which will be retailing at Kshs 13,499 across all retail stores in the country.  The Y 6 2019 features sleek, rounded curves carefully crafted in the shape of the screen, compared to the many wide rectangle shaped notches currently available in the market.  All purchases will come with a gift hamper that entails selfie stick, foldable bags and Bluetooth speakers or mugs in select stores.

Y6 2019 one of Huawei’s midrange devices is the second device to be launched in the market in 2019 following recent launch of Y7 Prime 2019 that has seen the company surpass its target by attracting over 5000 sales within a month. Huawei has also partnered with Lipa Later a credit facility that lets you pay for any device of your choice then pay monthly for Huawei Y6 2019.

The Huawei Y6 2019 boasts 13MP rear camera that ensures crystal- clear imaging quality with its high resolution, whereas the front camera is 8MP with smarter beautification algorithms.

Huawei Y6 2019 pre-orders will be live and customers are encouraged to pre-order within the two weeks.
