Huawei Y5 2018, characteristics and price of this new entry range

After launching the first mobile phone with a triple camera on the market, the Huawei P20 Pro, the Chinese brand does not want to neglect the input range, those terminals that barely exceed 100 euros and are intended for users who only want their mobile phone for what Basic, that is, check emails and social networks sporadically, take the odd photograph and, of course, make calls clearly and clearly. To do this, in 2018 it has been decided to launch the new Huawey Y5 2018 which, due to characteristics and price, may become your next terminal if you do not want to spend too much money and still have a decent performance.

Design and display

What first draws attention to this new Huawei Y5 2018 is that the brand has opted for the FullView or infinite screen design for this terminal of just over 100 euros. Of course, it is also surprising, but on the negative side of the scale, that it has dispensed with the fingerprint sensor. The dimensions of this terminal are 146.5 x 70.9 x 8.3 millimeters and it weighs only 142 grams, so it will be a very comfortable terminal in hand.

Its screen is 5.45 inches and has HD + resolution, something normal if we move in the range of 100 euros. It is already available in stores in two colors, blue and black, and is priced at 120 euros .

Processor, RAM and storage

This is where the Huawei Y5 2018 shows that it is an entry-level range. We have a common processor in this price range, the quad-core Mediatek MT6739, accompanied by a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage , perhaps a little less than what should already be customary in 2018 terminals. These figures, the user of the Huawei Y5 2018 will be able to run light applications and consult networks without problems.

Photographic section and special features

We have a 13 megapixel main camera with dual dual-tone flash , 2.0 focal aperture and autofocus. In the selfie section we will have 5 megapixels. What new features are we going to have in the camera?

Selfie Toning Flash. It automatically detects the light that hits our face, thus adjusting the brightness so that the self-portrait is more natural. In low light conditions, the phone will help you by offering a soft source of light.
