It's an inexpensive phone, but it has some high-end features. The Huawei Y7 2018, like its companion, the Huawei Y6 2018, is equipped with a facial recognition system . Useful for users to unblock and carry out certain procedures using their face as a password.
This on a mobile that costs 200 euros. And that despite that, it has other great features that are worth mentioning. And it is that this renewed Huawei Y7 2018 comes with an 18: 9 infinity screen, an eight-core processor and a 3,000 milliamp battery .
Users looking for a terminal adjusted in price, have in the Huawei Y7 2018 a golden opportunity. Now that it reaches Spanish stores, we review its ten most interesting keys .

1. Updated design
Huawei has decided to bet on the renewal in the design of this brand new Huawei Y7 2018. The team has dimensions of 158.3 x 76.7 x 7.8 millimeters and weighs 155 grams . It has dimensions somewhat higher than those of the Huawei Y7, but even so, it weighs a little less. This makes it a lightweight device.
The external appearance of the equipment is, in fact, one of the most important novelties of this model. The materials and design are very reminiscent of high-end devices . It also has a reflective back, which will surely be most attractive to the youngest.
2. Infinite screen
And we are going for another interesting novelty. Because Huawei has also decided to jump on the infinite screen bandwagon, despite the fact that the Huawei Y7 2018 is labeled as an input terminal. The panel that we find on board this terminal has practically six inches (5.99) and an 18: 9 format .
This causes the screen to flood the front of the device. It also enjoys a HD resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels , which will allow users to enjoy content in a more than consistent quality.
3. Facial recognition
It is also present in the Huawei Y6 2018, something unprecedented in the most basic terminals. We refer to the new facial recognition system, with which users have the opportunity to unlock the screen of their device and thus enjoy a new security option for their equipment.
This feature can be used as a complementary method, because the truth is that the Huawei Y7 2018 will also include other options that are already classic. And practically as safe.
Four . Internal machinery
We observe some decline in terms of internal machinery. Because the Huawei Y7 2018 enjoys a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which is slightly lower than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 that the Huawei Y7 that we met last year had integrated.
Fortunately, we have an eight-core chip that offers good performance. And that is integrated into an entry-level device. It is combined with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, so that in this sense we do not experience improvements.
5. Android 8 Oreo and EMUI 8.0
Another advantage to highlight: the arrival of Android 8 Oreo and EMUI 8.0 , the user interface that Huawei extends to all its devices. But in this case in the most recent version. Thus, despite the fact that Android 8 Oreo is still a minority version, users of this new device will have the opportunity to enjoy it as standard right out of the box.
6. 13 megapixel camera
We do see a slight improvement in the camera section. On this occasion, Huawei Y7 2018 users will have the opportunity to enjoy a 13 megapixel sensor , this one located at the back of the terminal. On the front, to take selfies, you have to have one with 8 megapixels that will offer us very correct results.
7. AR Lens function
Augmented reality is also present in this Huawei Y7 2018. And it is through the camera system that users can add all kinds of stickers and masks . This is a very fun function, which will especially appeal to the youngest, because they can then share the results with their friends and through social networks.
8. 3,000 milliamp battery
Another setback: in the battery section. And it is that instead of maintaining the 4,000 milliamp battery that we already saw in the previous Huawei Y7, Huawei has decided to reduce the capacity to one of 3,000 . It also does not include a fast charging system, which could throw back some users who already have this feature as an essential.
9. Fingerprint reader
We have already indicated that the new Huawei Y7 2018 stands out for having a facial recognition system with which to unlock the phone or authorize certain functions. Be that as it may, Huawei has not given up on other security functions. So in the back of this terminal we will find a fingerprint reader.
10. Price and availability
The Huawei Y7 2018 (along with its brother, the Huawei Y6 2018) is already on sale in Spain. You can find it in any store or authorized dealer for 200 euros, free . However, it is very possible that in the coming weeks different offers will appear to get it at a discount, for a lower amount.
