: list of all Huawei smartphones and tablets that have started receiving the update to emui 10 and 10.1

Huawei continues to update the software of its mobile devices. In June, an update to the proprietary Emotion UI (EMUI) and Magic UI shells was presented for many Huawei smartphones. Even the company’s older smartphones are receiving an EMUI update to the modern version. The first month of summer is coming to an end and it’s time to take stock, sort through the multitude of news and roadmaps for EMUI and Magic UI updates, and understand which smartphones around the world have received or are still receiving the global June update to EMUI version 10.1 or 10, and which are being updated up to Magic UI 3.1.

EMUI 10 and EMUI 10.1 update for June 2020 according to the official schedule of Huawei received a total of 8 smartphones in the global market. Owners of previous generations of flagship Huawei smartphones, which include Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Huawei P20, Huawei P20 Pro, based on the eight-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 chip, received the long-awaited EMUI update to version 10 with many new features.

The latest version of the EMUI 10.1 shell has become available for many Huawei smartphones of the Mate 30 and Mate 20 series, Nova 5 and Nova 6. Huawei Honor 9X and 9X Pro smartphones recently received a stable version of EMUI 10.1, the distribution of which is only gaining momentum in Asia. Honor smartphones of previous generations, Honor 20, Honor V30, V20, Magic 2 and others also receive an update to EMUI to version 10.1 and Magic UI to version 3.1. The company does not forget about tablets; EMUI 10.1 was received by devices from the MediaPad M6 line and the MatePad Pro tablet.

Appearance and design are undoubtedly the advantages of the Huawei Y6 smartphone. The thin and light body fits comfortably in the hand. All corners are rounded.

The back panel is made of glossy plastic with a varnish effect. The solution is beautiful – shine and reflection, but without a cover it gets dirty quickly.

In the top center there is a round recess for the fingerprint scanner, on the left edge there is a protrusion with the main camera lens, and under it there is an LED flash.

The camera implementation is not up to par with a modern device; even budget models are increasingly using a dual camera and higher resolution.

The front panel is completely covered with tempered glass with a 2.5D effect. There is a narrow plastic edging.

In the upper part in the center there is a drop-shaped cutout for the front camera lens. Above it there is a narrow cutout for the earpiece, and there is also a light indicator.

At the bottom there is a strip with a shiny Huawei logo, except for it, the rest of the side frames are very thin.

Hidden under the glass are light and proximity sensors, as well as a front flash with a tinted effect.

All other elements are located at the ends of the device. At the bottom center there is a microUSB connector and speaker grilles.

On top there is a 3.5 mm jack and a microphone hole.

On the right side there is a volume rocker and a lock button.

On the left side there is a tray for two nano SIM cards and a memory card.

Design, materials, assembly

We won’t find anything extraordinary in the appearance of the Y6p. Typical design of a budget smartphone in 2020. The main thing that manufacturers continue to attract potential buyers in this segment with is multi-colored back covers with iridescence. But since color solutions are essentially exhausted, they are trying to interest us in different patterns of reflections and overflows.

As for the materials – plastic everywhere except the front part – here they used protective glass of an unknown brand. The frame is coated in the same color as the smartphone, but it is not glossy, but matte, it looks nice and no fingerprints are visible on it. The back is also plastic, it will probably be actively covered with scratches. And collects fingerprints, of course.

I tested Huawei Y6p in green. There are also purple and black options.

The build of the smartphone is excellent, traditionally for Huawei, there is not even a hint of complaints here at all.


The smartphone has a proprietary EMUI 9.0 shell developed for Android 9 Pie. Updating is possible over the air. Holding your finger on the screen for a long time launches an additional settings menu: widgets, navigation options, etc.

The lock screen has additional functions; thanks to multi-directional swipes, you can not only go to the desktop, but also launch a panel with “quick applications”, turn on the camera, change the wallpaper of the lock screen. Unlocking is possible using a fingerprint and facial recognition, the latter function is activated by tilting the smartphone. There is a funny animation of the charging process.

A swipe from the top opens the notification curtain, the settings icons are presented in short and full form, you can add icons of your choice.

There are quite a lot of interface settings, as well as built-in features – voice control, voice assistant like Alice, motion control, vision protection. In desktop mode, you can change the navigation system: the usual three touch buttons, or gestures.

Screen video recording is possible.

The main camera lens is light-sensitive, good shots are obtained even in low light. Photos are detailed, especially when shooting close objects. The flash helps to draw out the frame well. (Photos uploaded compressed)

Without flash:

With flash:

8 MP for the front camera is quite enough not only for video chats, but also for selfies for memory and Instagram. The image may be mirrored.

You can control the shooting with your voice – take a picture using the phrase “Cheese”.

Video is recorded with a resolution of 1920×1280 at 30 frames per second.

First of all, it is worth noting that the Huawei Y6p camera software does not have fancy artificial intelligence support. Probably because the smartphone uses a budget MTK chip instead of the proprietary Huawei Kirin. Whether this is good or bad, I can’t say for sure. On the one hand, AI often helps pull out complex scenes.

Now about the cameras themselves. It seems like nothing special if you look at the raw numbers. The main one consists of three modules – a main 13 MP wide sensor with a good aperture value of f/1.8, an ultra-wide module (120˚) 5 MP, f/2.2, and a depth sensor 2 MP f/2.4.

Suddenly, a smartphone camera can become a pleasant surprise for the buyer. Personally, she surprised me. The main module is definitely good. Naturally – within the limits of class and price. In good lighting you can get great photos. And even in low light conditions, the camera behaves more than decently – the detail is good, especially at close and short distances, there is practically no noise.

At the same time, the module demonstrates natural color reproduction and good dynamic range. As I already said, there is no AI support here, and the HDR mode is placed in a separate additional menu and cannot be activated directly from the shooting screen. But it seems to me that the camera uses it automatically.

When you point the viewfinder at objects in scenes with bright light and shadows, you see the exposure in the focusing area, respectively – a dark or overexposed picture. But if you take a photo and look at it later in the gallery, then, oh magic, it turns out that the photo looks quite good, both in the light areas and in the shadows. Cool!

The camera software seems simple, but it turns out that the algorithms are not so “stupid”. And all this happens automatically, without requiring any additional actions from the user. The only thing is that photos are not saved quickly and open in the gallery in almost half a second. But this, of course, is the fault of not very productive hardware.

There is simply no separate night mode in the camera interface. Night photos are weak in terms of detail in the shadows. Of course, compared to flagships. And in their class they are not bad. Overall, the Y6p probably has one of the best cameras in the price segment under $150.


Ultra-wide – normal for its class. Well, that is, it just exists and you can capture a wider scene. But the detail, naturally, is noticeably lower than that of the main module. This is especially noticeable in low light. But again, for the price it’s quite OK.

The depth module ensures that the “Aperture” mode works, that is, it helps blur the background. It works quite successfully. The object is cropped clearly, and the degree of bokeh effect can be adjusted. In general, it is not installed for show.

Regarding video shooting, I also can’t say anything directly bad, except that, of course, there is no stabilization. The videos are shot in 1080p and 30 fps, which is standard for the budget segment of smartphones. In general, the quality is quite acceptable if you have a steady hand and enough light.

The front camera in the Y6p is also not bad, it is completely enough for video calling and selfies of decent quality. There is a customizable “Beauty” mode that works for the front camera too – it will make your face smooth and remove imperfections. But background blur, unfortunately, for obvious reasons, is not supported by the front camera, so there is no normal portrait mode provided here.

Huawei Y6p camera software is the same as in other brand smartphones, but with significant simplifications. Many modes that are found in more expensive devices are missing. Panorama, HDR and a meager pro mode are hidden in the “more” menu. From the shooting screen, you can only turn on the flash and go to settings, which are not very diverse.

For some reason, there is an option to select the frame rate for shooting video, but there is only one option – 30 fps. But the very presence of the item suggests that perhaps something will change soon with subsequent updates and we will get an increase in resolution or frame rate.



In this regard, everything is also standard. Wi-Fi module 802.11b/g/n – single-band, 2.4 GHz only. Bluetooth 5.0 – which is nice. And suddenly – NFC support!

But it’s too early to rejoice for fans of contactless mobile payments. At least in Ukraine, Huawei and Honor smartphones without Google services do not currently support this function. But the company’s regional office says that such an opportunity will appear very soon.

As usual, I want to criticize the manufacturer for the microUSB port. Not out of harm, it’s just high time to install USB-C everywhere, stop mocking users. Therefore, I give a minus to everyone who uses an outdated connector in any devices.

The geopositioning module is characterized by support for GPS, AGPS, GLONASS, BeiDou networks. No problems were noticed in his work.

Another interesting feature of Huawei Y6p is the presence of FM radio, which works without connecting headphones, that is, it uses an internal antenna. But if you connect headphones, the signal will become more stable.

Processor capacity

Processor capacity is a parameter that indicates how many bits of data a processor register processes in 1 clock cycle. This is usually 32 or 64 bits.

64 bit

Instruction Set Architecture

Instruction set architecture (ISA) is a programmable part of the microprocessor core used by software to control the operation of the processor.


Number of processor cores

The processor can be either single-core or multi-core. The performance of the processor depends on the number of cores (threads). The more cores working simultaneously, the higher the power consumption, so in mobile devices all cores are used only under high load.


Processor clock speed

Clock speed is the number of operations per second that a processor or its core is capable of achieving. The higher the frequency, the higher the overall performance of the device, but performance also depends on the processor architecture and the number of cores.

2000 MHz (megahertz)

Most mobile devices have built-in Flash memory, which is used as a storage of system data, operating system, as well as user data – photos, videos, recordings and much more.
Mobile operating system (OS) is pre-installed software with a well-thought-out interface for user control of device functions.
To operate autonomously, a mobile device requires a battery that powers all its components.

Battery capacity

The main characteristic of a battery is its maximum capacity, that is, the charge it can store. Capacity is measured in mAh (mAh, milliamp-hour). The higher the capacity, the longer the mobile device can work.

5000 mAh (milliamp-hours)

Battery type

Many types of batteries have been used in portable devices, but NiCd (nickel-cadmium), NiMH (nickel-metal hydride), and even more so SLA (lead-acid) batteries are already considered obsolete. Instead, modern mobile devices use Li-Ion (lithium-ion) and Li-Pol, Li-Poly (lithium-polymer) batteries.


Power adapter

Characteristics of the charger (adapter, power supply) included in the standard package of the mobile device. More precisely, the output voltage in volts (V) and the output current in amperes (A).

14.59 cm (centimeters)

Aspect Ratio

Aspect ratio is the ratio of the shorter side of the screen, which is considered to be 1, to the longer side, which is denoted by a decimal fraction indicating the ratio to the short side.


Screen resolution

Screen resolution is the number of horizontal pixels (dots) multiplied by the number of vertical pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the image will be.

720 x 1600 pixels

Pixel Density

The number of pixels per inch or PPI (pixels per inch) indicates the density of pixels per 1 inch (2.54 cm) of the screen. The higher the PPI, the sharper the image, and the less visible or even invisible “squares and dots” (pixels).

278 ppi (pixels per inch)

109 ppcm (pixels per centimeter)

Color Depth

Color depth means how many bits are used in 1 pixel to display color (bits per pixel).

24 bit
16777216 colors

Screen area

Approximate usable area occupied by the screen on the front of the device. The higher the percentage, the narrower the frames around the display or the smaller the “chin with bangs.”

81.6% (percentage)

Touch screen

A touch screen is a device that usually covers the display and is a touch input tool. In fact, in mobile devices, the touchscreen is a replacement for the keyboard and mouse.


Touch screen type

There are many types of touch screens, with their pros and cons. Mobile devices often use capacitive touchscreens, but technology does not stand still and new types of sensors are appearing.



Touch screen support for two or more touches. For example, zooming photos with two fingers.


2.5D screen

2.5D is a display with rounded edges. Device manufacturers use a 2.5D screen as a design element, for a pleasant tactile sensation, or to add durability, dust and moisture protection.


The main camera, usually built into the rear of the device, is designed for creating photo and video content.

Maximum image resolution

This is the maximum number of pixels (dots) horizontally and vertically. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the image will be. Resolution can also be indicated in megapixels – this is the total number of pixels that can be in the image, calculated by the formula: vertical pixels multiplied by the number of horizontal pixels and divide the resulting amount by 1 million.

4160 x 3120 pixels
12.98 MP (megapixels)

Matrix type

There are two main types of photomatrix, CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) and CMOS (Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor). Mobile devices mainly use a CMOS matrix – it requires less space, has low power consumption and heating. Recently, new types of sensors have begun to appear, for example PureCel from OmniVision.

CMOS BSI (backside illumination)


Aperture (f-number, f) is used to control the light flux passing through the lens. The aperture is indicated by a fraction, and the smaller the fractional number, the higher the aperture passing through the lens. The more light that passes through the lens, the better overall, less noise in your photos and better night photography.


Flash type

Most mobile devices are equipped with light-emitting diode (LED) flashes, but there are also xenon flashes. As a flash, xenon is better – it is more powerful, but LED is more versatile (can work as a flashlight) and consumes less electricity.


Maximum video resolution

This is the maximum number of pixels (dots) horizontally and vertically. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the image will be.

1920 x 1080 pixels
2.07 MP (megapixels)

FPS video recording at maximum resolution

FPS (Frames per Second) is the number of frames that changes in 1 second. The higher the number of frames per second, the smoother the image will be. In this case, we mean the number of frames that the camera can achieve at its maximum resolution; the lower the resolution, the higher the FPS can be.

60 fps (frames per second)

Flash presence

Incorporating a flash into a mobile device allows you to take pictures in low light conditions. Creates the necessary lighting and compensates for the lack of natural light.


Digital zoom

With digital zoom (zoom, enlargement), the subject is brought closer due to software algorithms that “stretch and crop” the image. The higher the magnification with digital zoom, the worse the image quality (noise, blur) will be compared to a non-zoomed one.


Face Focus

Function of auto-detection of living objects and autofocus on their face or head.


Panorama shooting mode

Panoramic photography is a series of frames where each subsequent frame is a continuation of the previous one; at the end of the shooting, all frames are stitched together at the software level to create a panoramic photograph. Frames can be shot both vertically and horizontally, and their width can be up to 360 degrees. This type of shooting is used when the camera’s viewing angle is not enough to capture the entire scene.


HDR shooting mode

HDR photography takes a quick series of shots with highlights, midtones, and shadows, then combines them into a single frame with high dynamic range.


White Balance

White balance is a setting that helps ensure the correct color reproduction in an image by determining the color temperature of the light source in the frame. The balance can be set either automatically or manually.


ISO Setting

ISO is the level of light sensitivity. The lower the ISO, the less sensitive the camera’s light sensor and the smoother the image with less noise. The higher the ISO, the higher the light sensitivity, but more noise, graininess, or decreased sharpness.


Additional information

Additional information about the functions and characteristics of cameras.

This is a system in which communication and data transfer occurs between subscribers, the location of one or more of which changes. This section lists the supported mobile communication standards and frequencies.
What data transfer standards in cellular networks are supported by the device, as well as their speed.
Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a technology for wireless data transmission over a local network among devices based on IEEE 802.11 standards.
Bluetooth (BT, bluetooth (z), “blue tooth”) is a short-range wireless network (up to 10, sometimes 100 meters) operating on radio waves to transmit voice and data between devices.

Bluetooth version

Bluetooth technology is actively developing and, since 1998, has been constantly updating versions of the standard. Each subsequent version introduces one or several improvements in data exchange speed, range, facilitates pairing, reduces power consumption, or introduces some new protocols and operating profiles. The higher the Bluetooth version, the better. The technology is also backward compatible, for example, if your mobile device has version 5.0, then it will work with accessories version 4.2 and lower, but the improvements introduced in version 5.0 will not work; they will work only if both the device and accessories are version 5.


Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

Bluetooth LE is a low energy BT protocol specification.


A2DP profile

The A2DP Bluetooth profile is designed to transmit a high-quality two-channel stereo signal via Bluetooth to wireless headphones, speakers and other acoustics.


Modern devices have many sensors that help in measurements, trigger functions, and make using the device more pleasant.

Light sensor

The light sensor reacts to the light level and is able to adjust the screen brightness automatically based on this. This is necessary to reduce power consumption and ease of use of the device.


Proximity sensor

The proximity sensor reacts to the proximity of the mobile device to some object. For example, the sensor is used when talking on the phone to turn off the screen, which saves energy and prevents you from pressing buttons with your ear or cheek.



An accelerometer is a sensor that measures apparent acceleration, that is, it determines the position and distance at which a mobile device moves in space. Based on the data from this sensor, the screen orientation change, pedometer, control using tilts and gestures in games and applications, etc. work.


Fingerprint scanner

The scanner is responsible for authorization using a previously saved fingerprint, as a result of which the device is unlocked, payment is made, some action is confirmed – just put your finger on the scanner. Scanners can be either built into the body or built into a button or screen.


Digital compass

This is software that displays data from a magnetic sensor or GPS in the form of a compass on the screen of a mobile device. If there are no sensors or GPS, then the digital compass will not work.


Additional sensors and sensors

Audio – characteristics and capabilities of a mobile device in terms of sound.
The radio in a mobile device can be built-in by the manufacturer (catch local radio channels, no internet required, often works only with headphones (as an antenna), but not always) or installed as an online application (requires internet, but more channels and often better quality).
Location is determined by satellite navigation systems that track the device’s autonomous geospatial location at multiple points. The most common satellite navigation systems are GPS, GLONASS, and the Chinese BeiDou.


GPS (Global Positioning System) is a global satellite navigation system that can determine the position of a mobile device, build routes and find the desired object on the map with an accuracy of several meters.



A-GPS (Assisted GPS) is an assistive technology that will help you quickly find the location of your cellular device without waiting for satellite data, which is especially important in indoors and cities. Location is determined in various ways, for example, Wi-Fi access points, mobile towers, bluetooth and others.



GLONASS is a Russian Global Navigation Satellite System, which is similar to GPS and works in tandem with it, increasing the accuracy and speed of navigation.


Additional navigation systems

TRS headphone jack (or jack) is a common standard of connectors used for transmitting audio signals. By diameter there are jack (6.5 mm), mini-jack (3.5 mm) and micro-jack (2.5 mm). In mobile devices, the 3.5mm jack was considered the most popular and widespread, but recently they began to be removed, leaving only USB connectors, through which headphones are connected with a corresponding plug or using adapters.
Options for synchronizing a mobile device and connecting it to other devices.
A browser is a browser program for viewing sites and their content on the Internet. Through the browser, you can open websites, search for information, download necessary files, watch streaming videos, play browser games, etc.
Mobile devices support many audio file formats, as well as codecs for playing them.

Default formats

The formats that the mobile device supports out of the box are indicated. But if the device does not support the format you need, then you can try adding support for it. Sometimes support depends on the technical characteristics of the device (hardware) and nothing can be added here, but often the ability to process a particular audio format depends on the software part. You can install another audio player or codec set separately.

3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project, .3gp)
AAC (Advanced Audio Coding)
AMR / AMR-NB / GSM-AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate, .amr, .3ga)

Positioning and price

Huawei Y6p went on sale at the end of May 2020 at an estimated cost of 3,800 UAH (approximately $140). And to be honest, at first it may seem that for this price it has enough real competitors. These are, of course, Redmi 8 and 8A, as well as other first-tier Chinese, like OPPO A31, Realme 3 and C3, Vivo Y11 and U3X.

But even just comparing the characteristics and equipment, it becomes clear that the cost of the new Huawei product was chosen very wisely. Because the Y6p for the same price either has more powerful hardware, or a more capacious battery, or more permanent memory. Although, if you add another 200-300 UAH, then you can already find options that are more worthy in my opinion.

Performance and testing

The Huawei Y6 smartphone is built on a 64-bit MediaTek Helio A22 MT6761 chipset created using a 12nm process technology. Four cores operate at 2 GHz. The chipset is relatively new, created in mid-2020 specifically for budget solutions. Supports artificial intelligence, can monitor operating efficiency, protects against overheating, and is energy efficient. It is this that limits the capabilities of the smartphone – the maximum supported camera resolution is 13 8 MP, the screen is 1600×720.

Only 2 GB of RAM is the minimum that is required for normal operation of the OS. Devices with 1 GB of memory noticeably “slow down” in such conditions. But the built-in memory is a respectable 32 GB, but approximately 25 GB is available to the user.

Detailed information about the device will be shown by the AnTuTu Benchmark utility.

The same utility will conduct a comprehensive performance assessment. The AnTuTu Benchmark v7.1.7 test scores 64634 points. The HTML5 test shows 14065 points.


Geekbench 4.3.2 test will test the processor performance in multi-threaded and single-threaded mode. The indicators are average.

The RAM Benchmark memory test allows you to determine the speed of RAM; due to the good read/write speed, the small amount of memory is compensated; there are no significant “brakes” of the interface.


PCMark is another comprehensive test that will show us the average performance index of the device: Internet surfing, text file editor, viewing and editing videos and editing photos; overall score – 4203 points.


The graphic capabilities of the PowerVR GE8320 will be demonstrated to us by 3D Mark Ice Storm.


The Huawei Y6 smartphone can also be used as a gaming smartphone; many games will run smoothly at medium settings.

Asphalt 8, at medium settings the gameplay runs without any special slowdowns or freezes, even taking into account video recording from the screen.

Dead Trigger 2 also runs quite smoothly.

It also copes well with watching 1080P video, there are no stutters or pauses.

The GPS module showed excellent sensitivity – a cold start takes 10-15 seconds. Even indoors, it quickly finds dozens of satellites and determines the location with an accuracy of 2-3 meters. GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, BDS supported.

The 4G and 3G connection is stable, no problems have been identified, the earpiece is loud enough, transmits sound clearly, without distortion. The microphone is sensitive, the interlocutor hears speech clearly. When installing two SIM cards, one of them must be selected to connect to the mobile Internet.

Wi-Fi holds the signal perfectly even far from the router, the speed does not suffer.

I was especially pleased with the volume of the external speaker; the smartphone can be used as a portable speaker. The sound is quite decent, without distortion, there is even some semblance of low frequencies. F M radio works without connecting external headphones; they usually serve as an antenna on smartphones.

Firmware and software

Actually, the key thesis is this: Huawei Y6p is an AG smartphone. That is, it runs Android 10 and EMUI 10.1.0 with support for Huawei Mobile Services and the installed Huawei AppGallery application store (hence the term AG). There are no pre-installed Google services in the system, as well as the Google Play store.

How to live with this? It turns out that it is quite simple if you are ready to switch to using alternative services. Of which, as it turned out, there are countless numbers and often they are even better than analogues from the “good corporation”. You don’t have to say goodbye to Google completely; some services can be used through a browser or third-party applications.

You can even install some Google applications on this smartphone from alternative sources (for example, the APKPure store) – the same maps work, build routes, but you cannot save points, the gboard keyboard works, but some functions, like dictionary synchronization, will not function.

Typical IPS (PLS), typical for Huawei budget phones. Of course, when moving from the flagship OLED, it seems pale and expressionless. But it is clear that this only happens when directly compared with smartphone screens 5-8 times more expensive.

In reality, the Huawei Y6p has a decent display. And one might even say – excellent. It is 6.3-inch with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a resolution of 1600×720 pixels (density 278 ppi).

Viewing angles are maximum, contrast is also high. The black color is deep – on the screen it almost completely merges with the black frames. The brightness is decent, although not record-breaking. But outdoors the display remains readable in most cases. In general, the screen is very OK for such a price.

In the display settings there are standard EMUI options for color temperature correction, enabling the eye protection function and hiding the cutout for the camera. But there are also unique features – for example, the e-book mode switches the screen to black and white mode.


Huawei Y6p is a medium-sized smartphone. Of course, it may seem large to some, but all modern flagships are even larger. I can operate it with one hand almost without any problems and can reach the top edge of the screen with my thumb almost without catching. But I have a large palm and long fingers.

The buttons are in a convenient place, as is always the case in Huawei smartphones – they fall under the thumb if you hold the smartphone in your right hand or under your index/middle finger if you hold it in your left. The fingerprint scanner is also located where it is needed.

The general impression of the smartphone is that it is not slippery! And all thanks to the matte frame. Y6p does not constantly try to slip out of your hands, as is the case with glossy devices. Somehow I don’t even want to put this smartphone in a case. So, if you are not afraid of scratches on the back and/or use your smartphone very carefully, you don’t have to worry about this issue.


Huawei Y6 (2020) is a high-quality entry-level smartphone with an edge-to-edge display. The manufacturer paid increased attention to the security of personal information and an optimized interface. The device is designed for users who want to purchase a budget phone with a beautiful design and advanced features. Contents: smartphone, USB cable, clip for removing microSD and SIM cards, screen protector, power adapter and documentation.
