The Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 is official and it comes with a 5.99-inch FullView display, utilizing just about every inch of surface area on the front of the device for an interactive panel. Though the device was originally thought to be just the Y7 2018, Huawei has kept the word “Prime” in the name, following in the footsteps of the original Y7 Prime that was announced back in June of 2017. The display’s resolution is HD+ according to Huawei’s spec sheet on the phone’s official landing page, or more specifically a resolution of 1,440 x 720.
In addition to the large display size, the Y7 Prime 2018 comes with a range of decent specs like the 3,000mAh battery which is boasted to provide up to thirteen hours of video playback, up to 58 hours of streaming music, and up to twenty days of standby time. Suffice it to say the battery life on the Y7 Prime 2018 should be nothing to shake a stick at but actual real-world use may vary from person to person as everyone uses their devices differently, so that’s something to keep in mind.
Though the phone may look like just another average smartphone following the design trends of the industry, but Huawei is rather proud of the fact that it has put the Y7 Prime 2018 through some fairly rigorous testing that it says “exceeds the industry standards” for testing equipment. This includes testing the power button by pressing it 200,000 times, touching the screen 800,000 times, and plugging the phone in 10,000 times. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space, but that can also be extended as the phone also supports expandable storage with microSD cards. The phone will come in three colors which include Black, Blue, and Gold, it comes running on Oreo software with EMUI 8.0, and Huawei has fitted the device with a 13-megapixel camera on the back in addition to the front-facing 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video chat. At the moment Huawei hasn’t announced any pricing or availability info for the Y7 Prime 2018, so it’s unclear if this is a phone which will launch in the U.S. or not.
