Unlike the recently launched Honor 10, and the greatly gossiped P20 Pro, entry-level phones and budget phones don’t get the chance to be launched in an event with pomp and show. Same has been the case with Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 which has been listed on the official website without any stir.
Huawei seems to expand the Y series spanning across different price groups within entry level to budget smartphones. The phone is a successor to the earlier released Y7 Prime 2018, but has lowered down specs and is aimed for a lower price tag than its sibling.
Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 comes with a 5.45-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1,440 x 720 display having an 18:9 aspect ratio. Having a plastic body embedded in a metal frame, the phone also supports dual sim cards and has a dedicated micro SD card slot that can support up to 256 GB of memory.
The phone sports a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. However, the maker of the chipset is still unknown, but by the looks of clocking speed, we are guessing that the Y5 Prime 2018 may host an entry-level processor such as Snapdragon 450.
The optics of the phone include a 5MP selfie snapper while on the back it has a 13 MP single camera while additional features of the phone include a face unlock feature, an eye comfort mode to prevent strain on the eyes while reading and a three finger swipe screenshot.
As for the software, Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 ships with Android 8.1 Ore and EMUI 8.0 skin on top of it. Finally, the phone comes with a 3020 mAh battery with Power saving 6.0 technology. The company claims that the phone can give out 62 hours of continuous music playback or 13 hours of continuous video playback from a single charge.
The phone will launch in three colors Blue, Black, and Gold. The company, however, has neither unveiled the prices for the smartphone nor has it announced the date from which the phone is going to be available in the market.
