Huawei has launched three new devices in the Nepali market. The top of the line here is the Huawei Y8p which comes with an OLED display and 48MP triple camera setup. Let’s learn more about the Huawei Y8p in detail, including its specifications, features, official price, and availability in Nepal.
Huawei Y8p Overview
Design and Display
Like any other midrange device, Huawei Y8p comes with a notched display. The 6.3-inch OLED display has a dewdrop notch on the top to house the front camera. It is among the handful of devices that offer OLED panel in this price range. The corners are rounded and the bezels around the screen are minimal. It has helped the phone achieve a screen to body ratio of 90.17%. The screen packs in a total of 2400 x 1080 pixels with over 16.7 million colors. Since it has an OLED panel, the fingerprint sensor is now under the screen.
Huawei devices, especially in the budget and mid-range segment, tend to focus more on the design and aesthetics than the performance. And for some reason, this formula has been working for the company. The same is the case with Huawei Y8p. It comes with 3D curved edges, and the rear panel shows off what Huawei calls the “Light and Shadow” design. The color gradient on the back reminds me of the recently launched OPPO F15. Even the placements of the camera module and brand logo look similar.

Performance and Memory
While other smartphone brands are going with Helio G90T and Snapdragon 720G for lower and mid-range phones respectively, Huawei is still sticking with its Kirin 710F, paired with Mali G51 GPU. It’s the same combination that we saw in the Honor 9X International edition. The performance is okay, but comparing with what smartphones offer in the same price range, it is simply not enough. Even the Helio G90T beats Kirin 710F in benchmark tests; that too, by a big margin.
For memory, users can choose between 4GB and 6GB of RAM. Both variants come with 128GB of internal storage. If you don’t think that’s enough, you can expand it up to 256GB using Huawei’s own NM SD card.
Huawei Y8p comes with a 48MP triple camera setup. The three cameras are enclosed inside a pill-shaped camera module along with an LED flash on the top left side at the back. The 48MP primary camera has a SuperSpectrum sensor and an aperture of f/1.8. The SuperSpectrum sensor helps capture better details, even in low-light conditions.
The technology was first used in the Huawei P30 series. You also get an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera (f/2.4) and a 2MP depth sensor (f/2.4). For selfies, there is a 16MP camera inside the dewdrop notch on top of the display.

Battery and Others
Huawei Y8p gets its juice from a 4000mAh battery, which supports 10W (5V / 2A) charging. The phone runs on Android 10 with Huawei’s EMUI 10.1 on top. If you decide to buy this phone, you will have to live without Play Store and Google Play Sevices, which are replaced with Huawei AppGallery and Huawei Mobile Services, respectively.
The smartphone supports dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) and Bluetooth 5.0. It features a USB Type-C port for charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack. For security, there is an optical fingerprint sensor beneath the screen.
