Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 Duly Launched In Ghana: Here Is All You Need To Know.

Published

on

Huawei technology gives technophiles yet another pocket-friendly smartphone which is part of the Y series - The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019. 

Yesterday at the Tang Palace Hotel here in Accra, the budget phone - Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 was launched and seeks to serve both high and low-income earners as it cost only GHC 829. 

Simon liou, the Country manager for Africa gave a break down of how Huawei performed from 2010 - 2018 while Dennis Fixon Laryea, the Marketing manager - Huawei Ghana gave audience the breakdown on the specs.

The phone comes with a beautiful notched display screen that is quite expansive, but to keep its affordable status, Huawei went with an HD resolution. There is a dual-lens camera on the back, where the second sensor is meant for depth-sensing, a character needed for taking portrait shots.

Here is a summary of the specs.

  • 6.26-inch 19:9 HD+ (1520 x 720) LCD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB expandable storage, up to 512GB
  • Dual 13MP + 2MP main camera
  • 16MP front camera
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • Extras: Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, microUSB port, 5V/2A 10W charging, etc.

Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and inside the 2019 edition is an improved Snapdragon 450 chipset mated to the same amount of RAM and storage. But this time, you can expand the storage by up to 512GB.

Battery Strength 

Perhaps the most significant change that Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 brings over its predecessor is the battery, where the new model has a monstrous 4000mAh unit that promises more than a day of single use.

The battery-sipping HD display resolution also helps improve battery life. While the pre-installed Android Oreo has a good number of battery-saving features, it is the anticipated update to Android Pie that should tag along even more battery-saving features – all of which should help milk more life from the 4000mAh unit.

Photography

The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 has a dual 13MP + 2MP camera on the back supported by an impressive 16MP shooter on the front. In terms of software, EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo runs the show out of the box. 

Color Variations 

The phone comes in color variants of Aurora Blue, Midnight Black, and Coral Red.

The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 had been duly launched and one can get it in all the dealer shops across the country. Make sure you get yourself the new addition to technology and live the life.
