Sale will start from December 10. The phone is a different version of the Enjoy 5 which the company launched in October earlier this year.
The Enjoy 5S is powered by a MediaTek MT 6753T SoC. This is an octa-core SoC with its processors clocked at 1.5GHz. It comes with 2GB of RAM and the phone offers 16GB of on-board storage. The storage can be further expanded via a microSD card. It supports microSD cards to upto 128GB. It features a 5-inch 720p HD display.

One of the key features of the phone is its fingerprint sensor. It uses a second generation FPC push fingerprint sensor. Mounted on the back is a 13MP shooter which uses a BSI CMOS sensor and can record video in 1080p full HD. Huawei has added other software features like time-lapse, HDR and audio photo to the camera app as well. On the front, it has a 5MP camera. The phone is running on Android 5.1 Lollipop which is layered under Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 Lite UI. The device has a 2200 mAh battery, which gives about 7 hours of talk time on 2G and 3.33 hours of talk time on 4G. It supports dual SIMs and the second SIM is a hybrid slim slot which can either take your secondary SIM card or a microSD card.
