It’s not just making some of the best phones that has propelled Huawei to the number three spot in global smartphone shipments, but the sheer number of phones the company releases every year is also a major contributing factor.
Although the Huawei P20 family is on every Huawei fan’s lips, the company has more in stock to cater for those who can’t afford the big bucks needed for the big boys. One of the phones in question is the Huawei Y7 2018, the successor to last year’s model that was announced in May.
Like you’d expect whenever a device’s launch cycle nears, details of the Huawei Y7 2018 are now upon us, including the expected specs, some features, and even the price, all of which we’ve shared below.
Huawei Y7 2018 specs and features
- 5.99-inch 18:9 HD+ display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor
- 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage
- 13MP main camera and 8MP front camera
- 3000mAh battery
- Android 8.0 Oreo (EMUI 8.0)
Whenever a phone’s successor hits the market, everyone always expects upgrades, be it on the outside or inside. Well, apparently, the Huawei Y7 2018 will only get refreshed on the outside while the inside will, in fact, receive some downgrades.
The 2017 Huawei Y7 has a more powerful Snapdragon 435 chipset and a bigger 4000mAh battery unit, contrary to the Snapdragon 430 chipset and 3000mAh battery unit expected on the Huawei Y7 2018. The rest of the specs remain largely unchanged, among them the camera combo and memory, but you’ll be getting the latest software in Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top.
Huawei Y7 2018 price and availability
Huawei announced the Y7 2017 in May and started selling it in July. As is, we are on track for a repeat of these dates, or at least the launch date. Whether Huawei will also take weeks before eventually starts selling the Y7 2018 remains to be seen, but what is apparent is the phone will be sold in Europe and Asia, among other regions.
In terms of pricing, the Huawei Y7 2018 will come your way valued at about €199, which is a pretty ambitious price tag in a market that has several impressive devices like Honor 9 Lite, Honor 7X, Redmi Note 5 or even the Redmi Note 5 Pro, just to name but a few.
