Just a couple of hours ago, Huawei has announced Y7, which is a standard feature phone with huge battery. Performance wise, Huawei Y7 is packed with entry-level specifications, but the price tag of the device is similar to that of mid-range smartphones. This approach of Huawei is definitely a letdown for the users who are expecting ‘value for money’ devices from the company. The phone is priced around Rs. 14,999 in Asian countries and at this price range, one can get a good smartphone from other mobile manufacturers like Xiaomi, Lava, and Motorola.
Huawei Y7 is a dual SIM smartphone with support for both 3G and 4G networks. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with EMUI 5.1 over the top. It features a 5.5 inch IPS display but it carries a resolution of only 720 x 1280 pixels. To be honest, one can easily get a full HD display at this price range. As mentioned above, it does not have a powerful processor, as it is packed wth Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 435 chipset with 1.4GHz Octa-Core processor and Adreno 505 GPU. In addition, it has only 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, but the good thing is that it comes with the support for microSD card up to 256GB.

Huawei Y7 has very standard connectivity options like microUSB 2.0 port, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi, and GPS. It does not come with fingerprint sensors, which are very common nowadays even in entry level smartphones. On the photography section, Huawei Y7 is equipped with a 12MP primary camera with LED flash, while on the front, it has an 8MP selfie camera. The phone also has FM Radio and USB On-The-Go feature.
The best and the only good feature of Y7 is its battery. It is packed with a 4000mAh non-removable battery which can last long for 2 days, as the display resolution of the phone is very low. The phone will be available in three color options, i.e. Gold, Gray, and Silver. To get more tech updates, stay tuned with us.
