A mysterious Huawei-branded handset has surfaced on the Google Play Developer Console’s Device Catalog — a list of all the devices that support the Play Store, which developers can use to blacklist certain handsets from installing their applications.
The device in question is being referred to as the Huawei Y5 (2019), and comes with a 16:9 HD+ screen with a resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels, a low-end 2GHz MediaTek Helio A22 CPU, 2GB of RAM and EMUI 9.0.1, which is based on Android 9.0 Pie.
From the outside, it looks an awful lot like the Huawei Y6 Pro (2019), which also came bundled with a Helio A22 in the Philippines. It then appeared with less RAM as the Huawei Y6 (2019), surfacing as the Huawei Y6 Prime (2019) in Pakistan.
There’s no word on a release date in the listing. That said, when a handset surfaces on the Google Play Developer Console’s Device Catalog, it’s usually hits the shelves in the immediate future — so we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.
