 At first glance it seems that you may well have read the specification sheets for these handsets before. From what we can see this is not far from the truth, with Y5P being a rebranded version of the Honor 9S, and the Y6P looking rather like the Honor 9A. Of course, Huawei is the parent company of Honor, so they are fully at liberty to steal anything they choose.

Huawei Y6P & Y5P Camera Differences 

These are not straight steals; the camera setup is different on both handsets. When it comes to the Huawei Y6P, which is the higher spec version of the pair, you get three cameras. The camera housing follows the standard traffic light set up, and the flash is under the stack. There is also an ergonomically located fingerprint scanner on the back of the handsets, which look to be artistic and stylishly coloured with patterning in the paint job. 

For such affordable handsets this is a decent camera setup with a main 13MP lens ably assisted by a 5MP and a 2MP lens. One being a depth sensor and the other being the ultra-wide lens. Looking at the Y5P, we can see that this handset has been blessed with just two lenses on the rear. These appear to be the eight megapixel main lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The front facing camera for this handset is in the bezel along the top, but we do not have the size, whereas the Y6P has a neater water drop notch and this houses an 8MP selfie camera. 

Huawei Y6P & Y5P Specifications

The handsets both feature the Helio P22 chipset, the larger of the offering's has a 6.3-inch full HD+ LCD panel and is a nice-looking edge to edge screen. The smaller of the two comes in at 5.45-inches and has the same screen set up with an 18: 9 aspect ratio. This is an older style design with the classic top and bottom bezel. It features 32GB of on-board storage but you do have the removable micro SD card slot so you can add more to your heart's content and it comes with 2GB of RAM.

Both of the handsets use Android 10,and have the EMUI 10.1 skin over the top, which is where the Huawei personalisation sneaks through. They are both wired charging offerings, using microUSB ports. The larger handset has a 5000mAh battery which is pretty impressive, while the smaller has a 3020mAh battery. 

The Honor versions of these handset's proved to be very popular, so there is no reason why the Huawei versions with upgraded cameras should be any different. With the smaller handset you get the choice of black, green or blue rear panels, while as already mentioned the Big Brother comes in black, green or purple. The actual release date has yet to be confirmed so watch this space.
