Huawei Y5 2019

Being a mobile from the Chinese manufacturer’s entry range, it is not surprising that the specifications of the Huawei Y5 2109 are modest, although yes, somewhat higher than its predecessor. First of all, we have a 5.71 inch screen with 1,520 x 720 pixels of resolution, a notch in the form of a drop of water and a use of the front, according to Huawei, of 86.4%.

This is how Huawei makes money: its mobile phones are not (yet) its main activity

Inside, we find the MediaTek MT6761 processor, known as Helio A22 and composed of quad core ARM Cortex-A53 at a maximum clock speed of 2 GHz. It is the same SoC that we have seen, for example, in the Xiaomi Redmi 6A and the Huawei Y6 2019, a model with which it also shares the leather back and many other features.

It is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM memory, 16 or 32 GB of storage (depending on version, but in both cases expandable with a micro SD card up to 512 GB) and Android 9 Pie with the manufacturer’s EMUI 9 customization layer. To this is added a 3,020 mAh battery with intelligent energy-saving technology that, according to the company, reaches up to 16 hours of video playback and up to 10 hours to surf the 4G Internet.

Leather as a hallmark … or not

In the photographic section, the Huawei Y5 2019 includes a 13 megapixel rear camera with f / 1.8 aperture and FF, and a 5 megapixel front camera with f / 2.2 aperture, AF and Smart Beauty function. It also has facial recognition, although it lacks a fingerprint reader, and the usual connectivity options: dual SIM 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Micro USB and NFC in some versions.

But if there is something that differentiates the Huawei Y5 2019 from its predecessor (and that resembles its older brother, the Y6 2019) it is, without a doubt, the synthetic leather finish on the back, which also boasts of being resistant to wear. and to have a treatment that repels fingerprints and dirt. In any case, if you don’t like that leather look, you can always go for the version with a “glossy” finish.

The Huawei Y5 2019 has been published on Huawei’s international website, but the company has not given details about the markets it will reach or the price it will reach. What we do know is that there will be four versions, all of them with 2 GB of RAM and with 16 or 32 GB of internal memory. Some will also have NFC and support for the LTE TDD band.

As for the finishes, as we said, there will be two versions with a synthetic leather back (black and brown) and two with plastic cover (black and blue). Taking into account that the Huawei Y5 2018 went on sale last year in Spain for 119 euros, it is likely that the price of the 2019 edition is around that figure.
