We have already seen some budget-friendly devices from Huawei like the Y6 Pro 2019 and Y7 Pro 2019. And expanding its budget lineup, Huawei recently announced Y5 2019 in Europe. The major highlight here is the fancy looking Faux leather back. And apart from looking great in the eye, the faux leather rear panel happens to be anti-dirty, anti-fingerprint, and wear-resistant.
On the display part, the Y5 2019 is provided with a 5.71-inch IPS panel. The resolution here is HD+, which results in a pixel density of 295PPI. The handset also comes with a tiny dewdrop style notch atop the display. And this incorporates a screen-to-body ration of 84.6 percent. The display on the Y5 2019 also comes with the TUV Rheinland certification, which means it keeps harmful blue light under control.
As far as the imaging department is concerned, there is a single shooter on both ends. The rear camera utilizes a 13MP sensor whereas the selfie shooter on the notch gets a 5MP sensor. The selfie shooter on the device is also responsible for authenticating the facial data while using the Face Unlock feature. The Face Unlock feature is said to identify 1024 facial features. So Huawei claims it to be reliable. And this is the only biometric option to unlock the device since the Y5 2019 lacks the fingerprint sensor.
Talking about other specs, the device comes with MediaTek Helio A22 chipset along with 2GB of RAM. On the storage side, the phone comes in two memory formats: 16GB and 32GB. The phone also gets the dedicated SD card with which users can expand the storage up to 512GB.
The phone is relatively light at 146 grams. And in its lightweight body, the phone packs a 3020mAh battery. On the software part, the phone gets the Android Pie with EMUI 9 on the top.
The handset is said to be a budget-oriented device. However, there is no information regarding the actual price of the device yet. The availability of the device is also kept under the veil.
