Huawei introduced a new Y series smartphone, the third of the series this month only, the Y6 2017, an entry-level model, that should come at a good price.

The Y6 2017 is the sequel to the Huawei Y6, which was released on the market two years ago. The new device comes with many improvements over the predecessor, so it’s definitely worth upgrading if that’s what you want to know.

However, since the Huawei Y6 2017 seems to remain an affordable smartphone, its specs aren’t very impressive. The Y6 2017 is equipped with a 1.4GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The smartphone sports a 5-inch IPS display with HD (720p) resolution and a 3,000 mAh battery.

On the back side, there’s a 13-megapixel photo snapper, while on the front, Huawei added a secondary 5-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. Aside from the rather large battery and the decent camera, another selling point of the Huawei Y6 2017 could be the fact that it features dual-SIM support.

Huawei has yet to announce when the Y6 2017 will go on sale and how much it will cost, but is expect it to be priced at less than $200.
