Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 with Snapdragon 450, 6.26-inch Dewdrop Notch Display Launched: Price, Features


The Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 first gave an appearance in the form of a leak, and now the device has been launched in its full glory. The company has gone official in Vietnam today, and we now have our hands on the information relating to the device’s price, availability, and specs. The Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 features a dewdrop notch, a 4,000mAh battery, and dual rear cameras. Let’s check out all the details about the phone.

Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Expected Price in India

The Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is launched at VND 39,90,000 (approx. INR 11,900) in Vietnam. The phone is available in Aurora Blue and Black color options. For now, it has been set on sale in the region and is clubbed with a free Bluetooth speaker for the users who buy it before January 6, 2019. We don’t have any information regarding the device’s launch in other regions outside Vietnam although there remains a fair chance that Huawei may bring this device’s to budget-friendly markets like India. On another thought, we think that Huawei may also launch the phone under its sub-brand Honor, in India. After all, in India, Huawei’s Honor brand has taken the lead when it comes to budget offerings. The company may as well take it forward by rebranding the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 as an Honor phone.

Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Misses Out On Fingerprint Sensor, Powered By Snapdragon 450 SoC

Huawei Y7 Pro 2019Coming to the complete specifications of the device, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 has a 6.26-inch full-HD+ screen at 720×1520 pixels with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. There is a dewdrop notch on top of the screen that is integrated with the selfie camera sensor. The phone supports Face Unlock feature but misses out on a fingerprint sensor, which can be attributed to its budget pricing. Thankfully, the phone does not miss a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is placed at the top edge.

Under the hood, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 processor paired with Adreno 506 GPU and 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, the phone gets 32GB internal storage that can be further expanded up to 512GB via microSD card. The software side of things possesses Android Oreo layered with EMUI 8.2. For optics, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 has a 13MP+2MP dual rear cameras with LED flash and a 16MP front camera. Connectivity options on the phone include dual-SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.2. A 4,000mAh battery backs the phone without fast charging support.

Pricing Will Play Crucial Part for Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 in India

Given its specifications and features, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 comes across as a decent budget offering with significant additions. For some users, however, the lack of fingerprint sensor may pose an issue. All the other features are impressive when we look at the pricing. We think that the device may hit the right chord if launched under 8K in India as there are phones from Realme, Asus, and Xiaomi that feature better SoCs in their phones under 10k range.

It would be interesting to see how Huawei brings this phone in India. If it does, then it will need to tread carefully on the price point.
