The Huawei Y5 is the successor to Y5 II which was released last year. The smartphone company launched the new phone rather quietly much like Xiaomi’s Mi Pad3 release as the launch saw no event dedicated to it and a press release couldn’t be found.
Considering the specifications, the Y5 is an entry level phone with a 5 inches screen with a 1280 X 720 pixel resolution and a Mediatek MT6737 Quad core processor. The RAM is a 2GB one with 16GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB by an SD card.
The memory specs are double to that of its predecessor Huawei Y5II. The phone can house dual SIMs and has an 8MP rear camera plus a 5MP selfie shooter installed. The battery has a capacity of 3000mAh which the company says can provide 1.5 days of life.
The budget Honor 8 Lite also has a 3000mAh battery and easily lasts over 1.5 days with the latest software and an upgraded processor. Taking into consideration the old Android 6.0 installed with the outdated EMUI 4.1 and a cheaper processor it is possible the Huawei Y5 may last a little longer than the said one and a half day.
The phone has 4G capability and will be available soon in four colors namely gold, pink, white and gray.
