As we said, the Huawei Y7 comes to complete the basic range of Huawei, in which we already find the Huawei Y3 2017 and Huawei Y5 2017. The two existing models have 5-inch panels, and in this case the company is committed to a 5.5 inch diagonal which is close to the idea of ​​phablet although, yes, the resolution remains at a discrete 1,280 x 720 pixels.

But although we are facing a simple terminal, Huawei does not renounce a design with elements of more complete equipment such as the 2.5D glass that covers your screen or its back cover made of aluminum.

Speaking of the rear, here we find the main camera with a sensor 12 megapixels accompanied by a phase detection focusing system that can focus on objects in just 0.3 seconds, according to Huawei. For the front camera, a sensor of 8 megapixels with face detection and the inevitable beauty mode.
