NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 1 – Huawei Mobile Kenya has launched Y7 Prime 2019 that will be retailing at Sh17,999 from 7th of February, online and in stores.
The mobile company has partnered with Lipa Later a credit facility that lets buyers pay for any device in monthly instalments.
The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 features a 6.26-inch HUAWEI Dewdrop display, 13MP AI Camera with a f/1.8 wide aperture lens, two-day battery and an octa-core Qualcomm SoC Snapdragon 450.
“HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 is made for today’s dynamic youth who are deeply engaged with the social media culture,” said Steven Li, Head of Eastern Africa Mobile.
“Given the rise of video-centric platforms, the HUAWEI Dewdrop Display—first debuted with the flagship HUAWEI Mate 20 Series—lends itself to great viewing experiences thanks to its top class screen-to-body ratio of 86.7 percent. The pearl-shaped notch that houses the 16MP front camera is Huawei’s smallest notch to date; it is situation on the vertical axis of the device, and does not disrupt the harmonious symmetry of the near-full screen design,” added Li.
With a vertically aligned camera system, HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 shares a striking resemblance with a compact digital camera.
Li says this is a deliberate design choice to offer the best smartphone photography experience amongst devices of its class.
The improved camera in the new HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 captures 50 percent more light information compared to its predecessor. In Night Mode, HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 combines the light information of four photos taken in quick succession to produce a final image that is bright, clean, and full of details.
Similarly, in HDR Mode, it puts together three images taken at different exposures to create a final image with better dynamic range.
HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 comes with EMUI 8.2. Alongside background optimizations that enhance system operational smoothness, EMUI 8.2 features a range of battery saving measures that help the users make the most out of their device.
For instance, EMUI 8.2 features a Battery Saving Mode that disables certain features on the phone for better battery efficiency. These features synergize with the class-leading 4000mAh battery, offering two-day battery life for everyday users.
HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core SoC. The 14nm SoC features eight ARM Cortex-A53 high efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz to deliver great multi-core performance at superb battery efficiency. It runs with an Adreno 506 GPU with Vulkan support, delivering smooth performance in new top mobile titles. HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 also supports expandable storage of up to 512GB via the microSD card slot.
