The Google Play Developer Console’s Device Catalog is a list of devices that app developers can use to whitelist or blacklist certain devices from installing their apps. The list is maintained by Google, and is based on the information that device makers themselves submit to Google, making it a very good spot to look out for upcoming devices. We have spotted devices like the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, as well as the Razer Phone 2 on the Play Console in the past. Now, we have information about the upcoming Huawei Y5 2019 that has been spotted with the MediaTek Helio A22.

The Huawei Y5 2019 appears to be an upcoming budget/early mid-range device from Huawei. The phone will sport a waterdrop notch to house the front camera, and there also appears to be a sizeable chin on the bottom of the device. The UI visible in the official device render appears to be from EMUI, which is not a surprise for a Huawei device.

With regards the rest of its specifications, the Play Console Device Listing confirms the name of the device. The phone will have a display resolution of 1520 x 720 and a DPI of 320. The phone will be sporting the MediaTek MT6761 SoC, which is more commonly known as the MediaTek Helio A22. This SoC with its 4x ARM Cortex-A53 cores and a maximum clock speed of 2GHz is also seen on devices like the Lenovo A5s and the Xiaomi Redmi 6A. Also on-board with be 2GB of RAM. The phone will launch with Android Pie underneath EMUI 9.

It is currently unknown when and in which regions the Huawei Y5 2019 will launch. The SoC is a rather modest SoC, so we do not expect crazy specifications on this device. It will also very likely be placed closer to the budget segment keeping in mind its SoC, RAM and display resolution. The waterdrop notch will add a nice touch to this device in its expected segment.

Note: Huawei has stopped providing official bootloader unlock codes for its devices. Therefore, the bootloaders of their devices cannot be unlocked, which means that users cannot root or install custom ROMs.
