Huawei nova Y72 packs huge 6,000mAh battery and RM899 price tag

A new midrange phone will be coming to the Malaysia market in the near future that’s priced under RM900. Dubbed the Huawei nova Y72, the new budget phone aims to offer exceptional bang for the buck for RM899 and ships with a free pair of wireless earbuds for a limited time.

Rather than simply pushing the hardware, Huawei this time around are offering a novel feature that improves the nova Y72’s user experience with the introduction of what they refer to as an X Button that works as a shortcut to up to two favourite apps. To take advantage of the X Button, users simply have to assign an app to either the ‘long press’ or ‘double press’ action when tapping the screen so you can immediately deploy these apps when needed such as for banking or ride-sharing.
