Huawei Y5 2019: price, specs, features

By  Adeline Belluz 2019-05-29 3011 0

Spring is usually the time chosen by Huawei to renew one of its entry-level models par excellence; so, if in April 2017 the Huawei Y5 2017 appeared and in May 2018 the Huawei Y5 2018 was presented, which arrived in Spain last July, today it is the turn of the next generation.

The Huawei Y5 2019 appeared a few days ago in the developers console of Google Play showing some features, such as the Helio A22 processor and 2 GB of RAM memory. Today, at last, the Chinese manufacturer has made official its new affordable phone thus revealing the rest of its specifications.

Quad-core and 2 GB RAM

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

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

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

Leather as a sign of identity... or not

In the photographic section, the Huawei Y5 2019 includes a 13 megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 and FF aperture, 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 one thing that differentiates the Huawei Y5 2019 from its predecessor (and that resembles its older brother, the Y6 2019) is undoubtedly the synthetic leather finish on the back, which also boasts to be wear resistant and have a treatment that repels fingerprints and dirt. In any case, if you don't like that leather look, you can always opt for the "glossy" finished version.

Versions and price of Huawei Y5 2019

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 at which it will reach them. What we do know is that there will be four versions, all with 2 GB of RAM and 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 the rear synthetic leather (black and brown) and two with plastic cover (black and blue). Bearing in mind 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.
