Huawei launches new entry level phone, Y7 Pro

Huawei's new entry level phone, the Y7 Pro puts its large size to good use with an Easy Mode feature that makes fonts and icons larger for the ease of older users.

Huawei is launching a new entry-level smartphone, the Y7 Pro to coincide with its flagship P30 smartphone and Mate 13 laptop releases this weekend on April 6. 

It says the Y7 Pro was made to fulfill basic smartphone needs by combining quality technology and stylish design at an affordable price, in this case RM649.

Huawei says this phone introduces a new feature, Easy Mode to assist older users with larger fonts and icons plus higher volumes, making it easier to read and hear.

The Y7 Pro's 6.26in screen shares the dewdrop notch design of its flagship Mate 20 Series, though the presence of a large bezel at the bottom of the phone which carries the brand's name means the screen to body ratio is only 86.7%. 

Its dual rear camera includes a primary 13-megapixel unit and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, while the front facing unit is a 13-megapixel camera.

The Camera AI is claimed to be able to identify 22 categories of objects or scenes and change settings accordingly.

Huawei boasts that the Y7 Pro captures 50% more light information than its predecessor and by using night mode, stitches multiple images taken in quick succession to produce a single brighter final image.

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, Adreno 506 GPU and runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) out of the box. It runs on a 4,000mAh battery that is capable of quick charging at 10W.

It comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard memory, with support for expandable storage of up to 512GB via a microSD card.
