Huawei Y7 Prime 2018: Price, Features, Specs and Release Date

Almost on a daily basis, a new player is entering a smartphone industry and making the competition extreme. To go through such competition and maintain its ascendency as one of the biggest brands, Huawei in April announced Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 – an upgraded version of last year’s Y7 Prime. The last year’s Y7 Prime was not a particularly handsome handset as it lacked a lot regarding design and performance, but Y7 Prime 2018 is an exception.

The things in this upgraded version “Y7 Prime 2018” are looking hopeful. The new Y7 Prime 2018 looks pretty dazzling and modern and comes with three cameras (2 rear and one front-facing) and a better overall package. What else it dishes out? Let’s explore in Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 Review below.

A Quick Overview

Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 comprises a gorgeous 5.99” IPS LCD which with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels to give users pleasurable visual experience. The handset comes with an onboard memory of 32GB which you can expand further up to 256GB via microSD card. And after expansion, users can save an ample amount of song, images, video and even movies.

The device is armed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 – partnered with 3GB of RAM. And to manage a graphical department, Y7 Prime 2018 houses Adreno 505 inside. The device delivers decent smooth performance but doesn’t expect up-to-the-mark performance. Very much like other budget smartphones, Y7 Prime 2018 bears a 13MP + 2MP rear sensor which is assisted by an LED flash. Hence, users can capture detailed images even low-light condition. On the other hand, an 8MP sensor is sitting on its front for giving users an excellent selfie experience.

As far as its software is to be seen, Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Battery-wise, a 3000mAh non-removable cell is there inside Y7 Prime 2018 which promises to keep you up all day long under a casual use. But don’t expect to deliver more than that with heavy usage.
