Huawei has silently listed a new smartphone on its global website. The handset, officially dubbed the Huawei Nova Y61 is consider it to be the successor of Nova Y60, which debuted last year.

The Huawei Nova Y61 looks like any other budget smartphone. It has a flat frame design and a rear camera layout similar to the Apple iPhone Pros. But the actual cameras are underwhelming as they are a basic 50MP primary shooter, a 2MP macro snapper, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 5MP front-facing unit.

Though the company doesn’t mention it, the device seems to feature a plastic build. It measures 164.28 x 75.8 x 8.94mm in dimensions, weighs 188g.

The handset sports a 6.52-inch display (LCD) with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels (HD+) and a dewdrop notch. It is powered by an unnamed chipset comprising an octa-core CPU.

It comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage in the Asia Pacific region. Whereas, in the rest of the world, it features 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Similarly, in some regions, it arrives with dual SIM, while limited to single SIM in others. Even NFC is limited to certain regions only.

Either way, all the variants offer single-band WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth 5.1, and GNSS. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port (USB 2.0).

On the software front, the device boots EMUI 12 with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS). Last but not least, it is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast wired charging.
