Huawei’s latest lower mid-range device, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is soon set to come to the Nepali market. Now, the lower mid-range section is something that faces quite the competition, so, the Y7 Pro 2019 has a lot of work to do. The Y7 Pro 2019 is the successor to the Y7 Pro 2018, which was kind of a benchmark for budget phones back in 2018. So, will it be able to uphold the same name?
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Overview
Since the phone belongs in the lower mid-range section, there is not many new things to expect in here. You get a 6.26″ IPS HD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Plus, the display is protected by Gorilla Glass, but it has not been specified as to which.
As per the norm at present, you get dual camera at the back. The dual camera setup comprises of a 13 MP primary camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. The front has a 16 MP camera for selfies. But the back houses nothing else – you don’t get a fingerprint sensor at all. There’s only Face Unlock, which uses the front camera.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor, which is typically found in budget phones. I feel like this phone could have done better, but it doesn’t. In addition, it packs 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. You can expand the memory up to 512 GB via microSD card. Furthermore, it has 4000 mAh of battery, but it still uses a micro USB port. Again, another poor choice for a smartphone that has “2019” in the name itself!
The international price for the phone is around $170, and so, the Nepali price could hover around Rs.25000. For that price, it faces a lot of tough competition, because there are a lot of good phones for that price. There is Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 AI, and even the latest Samsung Galaxy M20, whose price will be around the same in Nepal.
