Huawei Y7 goes official with massive 4,000 mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat
Huawei continues to flood the smartphone market with new budget-friendly and mid-range Android smartphones. The Chinese handset maker quietly introduced the Huawei Y3 2017 in Europe a few days ago, a cheap smartphone that should go on sale very soon.
Today, another Huawei smartphone popped up on the company's official website, the Y7. Unlike the Huawei Y3 2017, this is a mid-class device that ships with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.
The rest of the phone's specs are pretty solid considering that it belongs to the mid-range category. One thing that we haven't been able to determine yet is how much the Y7 will cost in Europe and when it will hit the shelves.
However, we do know the Huawei Y7 packs good enough 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.
Furthermore, the smartphone sports a 5.5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution, as well as a 12-megapixel rear camera with 1.25 μm pixel sensor and PDAF (phase detection autofocus).
Selfie lovers will be glad to know Huawei included a secondary 8-megapixel camera on the front size, which features face recognition technology and beauty mode. There's also fingerprint sensor positioned on the back side of the phone, right below the primary camera.
Another selling point of the Huawei Y7 could be the huge 4,000 mAh battery under the hood, which promises to deliver 20 hours of video playback or up to 15 hours of internet browsing. Huawei states the battery has a capacity retention rate of more than 80% even after 500 times of recharge cycles.
Design-wise, the Huawei Y7 features a metal body, but a plastic frame. The front side is coated in 2.5D glass, while the back side has a sandblasted surface.
