They have done it in silence, but it is official. The Huawei Y5 2017 has been presented . It is a new edition of this basic range mobile. Its technical sheet is far from the great offers that Huawei has on the market for now (read Huawei P10), but the truth is that it is not far behind.
The first thing that catches the attention of this new Huawei Y5 2017 is, without a doubt, its design . It stands out for having a light architecture. It is pleasant to the touch and has curved edges. This makes the equipment fit if problems are at hand. This will appeal to users looking for a practical terminal.
Huawei Y5 2017, features
The Huawei Y5 2017 has a design very similar to the rest of the equipment that the firm has presented so far under a basic range. It weighs 150 grams and measures 143.8 x 72 x 8.35 millimeters, making it a fairly thin and light terminal. We will find it in five basic colors: gold, pink, blue, white and gray.
The device is equipped with a 5-inch screen and HD resolution, which will allow us to enjoy content in the correct quality.
In this sense, there are no substantial changes with respect to the benefits offered by the Huawey Y5 II that we already know and that was presented in 2016.
The team will continue to have a quad-core processor. In this case, Huawei has again opted for a Mediatek MT6737T Quad-core CPU chip (1.4GHz Cortex-A53) . This will combine its performance with a 2 GB RAM.
The set may fall a bit short for those users who need high performance. However, it must be borne in mind that we are facing a basic range equipment . Its price promises not to skyrocket too much in the market.
It should be noted, yes, that the Huawei Y5 2017 will enjoy an internal capacity of 16 GB . This memory can be expanded with external microSD cards. These capabilities are doubled from last year's model. Users who are looking for a more powerful terminal, but who do not want to spend much more, will appreciate it.
So if you need more space to store multimedia content, documents and applications , you will have the opportunity to compensate without problems.
A powerful battery
One of the points that most highlights the new Huawei Y5 2017 is in the battery . And is that despite being a basic smartphone, the new Huawei device has a built-in battery with up to 3,000 milliamps capacity.
We are facing a more than significant increase, if we compare it with the 2,200 milliamps of battery that the previous version had. This could guarantee a good battery for up to two days at full capacity. A detail that those users who spend many hours away from home will appreciate.
Upgrade the selfie camera
The main camera remains on an 8 megapixel sensor, following in the wake of its predecessor. Where we do see a significant improvement is in the camera for taking selfies. It is located on the front of the phone and has a 5 megapixel sensor.
About its price and release date, there is still nothing written. However, taking into account that the Huawei Y5 is a phone that has always been for sale in the Spanish market, it is most likely that this model will also arrive in our country.
The Huawei Y5 II, for example, costs less than 100 euros . We do not yet know the price that this new model will have, but everything indicates that it will be an accessible team for all budgets.
