Huawei Mobiles Nepal has officially launched the Huawei Y7 Prime in Nepal for Rs. 24,900. The phone will compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Samsung J7 Prime in the sub Rs. 25,000 price bracket.
Huawei Y7 Prime Specs Breakdown:
Huawei Y7 Prime has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, albeit the resolution is only HD. The competitors are offering higher resolution display in this price segment. The display also lacks gorilla glass protection, making it vulnerable to drops and scratches. Hence, sticking a tempered glass can be considered as a good idea. The battery capacity is of 4000mAh which should last 2 days considering its lower res display.
Powering the Huawei Y7 Prime is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC with a 1.4Ghz octacore Cortex A53 cores built on the 28nm process. It is aided by an Adreno 505 GPU which is a decent GPU compared to the ones on the MediaTek processor. In terms of memory, it has 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. You can expand the storage via a microSD card slot upto 128GB.
Optics wise, it has a 12MP shooter with F/2.0 aperture lens, 1.25um pixels, PDAF, and single LED flash. The front houses an 8MP selfie camera with beautiful Skin 3.0 mode. The company claims that with PDAF, it can capture photos in just 0.3 seconds.
There’s also a super fast fingerprint sensor on the back side that unlocks the phone in just 0.2 seconds. It’s currently running on Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 layered on top. Connectivity option include dual hybrid SIM (4G + 4G), WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. It, however, lacks Gyro sensor and fast charging support.
The Huawei Y7 Prime is now available from your nearest store in 3 color options: Gold, Silver, and Black. The company is also offering free selfie stick on the purchase of the phone.

Early Thoughts about Huawei Y7 Prime:
So, if you are after the smooth performance (14nm SoC + MIUI), the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is definitely a right choice. If you want better excellent battery life and a high-res selfie camera, the Gionee A1 Lite might be a right phone for you.
However, battery life, fast fingerprint sensor and Nougat update are your priority, the Y7 Prime looks like an ideal choice. However, for me, as of now, the Galaxy J7 Prime (after the price cut) is an overall winner here with a good 1080P display, excellent rear camera, 14nm processor and good battery life.
Having said that, it’s just an early verdict. I will be using the Huawei Y7 Prime for a couple of weeks and will be compared with the other products before sharing my final thoughts on the phone in a detailed review.
