One of the quirks is the MediaTek processor powering the Huawei Y6s (2019). This is somehow since Huawei has not been using MediaTek chipsets in its smartphones. This also goes a way to tell that Huawei is looking for another way around the trade restrictions put on it by the US Government.
The MediaTek processor is not that bad and it seems to be the only viable solution for a budget smartphone when trying to avoid Qualcomm chipsets.
