The Huawei Y5 2017 version has now been launched according to information on the company’s official website. The device is a budget-phone from Huawei’s popular Y series which means that it is generally more affordable than the P9 that Huawei officially unveiled last month. In a move that has surprised all and sundry, the Huawei Y5 2017 wasn’t officially announced and does not have details of its price nor availability yet.
The Huawei Y5 2017 is a dual-sim device and it utilises Huawei’s im-house EMUI 4.1 which is based on Android Marshmallow 6.0
The Huawei Y5 2017 spots an 8MP camera at the back while a 5MP shooter is left in charge of the selfies. It is worth of mention also the front camera comes with an LED flash.
Measuring about 143.8mm x 72x 8.35mm and weighing about 150 grams. the Huawei Y5 2017 is equipped with 16GB of internal storage which is expandable to 128GB via memory card.
The phone comes with a 300mAh battery and is expected to be available in Blue, Gold, Pink, White and Grey colours. The Huawei Y5 2017 is powered by the quad-core MT6737T processor and has a considerably large screen size of 5 inches HD display
