Huawei Nova Y61 now official with 50MP rear camera

Huawei have just announced the Nova Y61 smartphone as the direct successor to the initial Nova Y60. The device comes in a 6.52-inches screen, has unknown octa-core CPU, and boots Android based EMUI version 12 out of the box.

The phone is available in two storage option; there is the based model with 4GB RAM and a 64GB ROM, and the upper class model with 6GB RAM + the same 64GB ROM. The Nova Y60 began it journey from South Africa last year, so it won’t be surprising to see the Y61 treated likewise.

The phone comes with a sided fingerprint scanner, and it is powered by a 5000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charger. Note that only the Asia Pacific region will get the 6GB + 64GB ROM version. Africa and other region will receive the 4GB RAM variant.
