Phone makers, Huawei, are back with another amazing phone. The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 launched earlier this week and will be retailing in stores near you. It is an upgrade from the previous Y7 phone and packs some impressive features compared to its predecessor.
As per usual, Huawei remains current with the phone trends and have maintained the notch feature. There are, however, some improvements to this design including a 6.26” screen and a dewdrop display. This dewdrop design not only makes the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 look more attractive but it also offers a great viewing experience as it is less intrusive compared to the other notches. Those who are still skeptical about the notch design will surely love this one.
Another significant improvement on the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 is its massive 4000mAh battery. This battery can last up to 2 days for light users. It also comes with EMUI 8.2 which supports intelligent power saving modes when your battery life is running low. You can expect a reliable battery life with this feature.
The Y7 Prime runs on Android 8.1 and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset with a 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. However, it has expandable storage of up to 512 GB. This delivers great multi-core performance at superb battery efficiency. It allows users to perform tasks smoothly according to top standards.
Huawei did not overlook the camera either. There are 2 vertically-aligned, 13Mp + 2Mp AI cameras at the rear that gives the best photography experience in its class. The front camera has 13Mp and a wide aperture of f/1.8 for granular depth control. This simply means that this camera gives you crisp and clean images. Additionally, it recognizes 22 categories of images and objects. This improved camera captures 50% more light thus taking better night-time photographs.
In general, the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 is a pleasant looking phone with ceramic-like cover and metallic chassis. It comes in striking colours including Aurora blue, Coral red and Midnight black. It’s not the slimmest phone but it doesn’t feel bulky either thanks to its almost zero bezels design.
