Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 is yet another smartphone that the company launched on Tuesday beside the Huawei P20 lineup and the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS. The Chinese mobile maker, at an event in Paris, unveiled its flagship smartphones – Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro. While the company had already launched the Huawei P20 Lite earlier this month, it has now quietly rolled out a new smartphone – the Y7 Prime 2018 – that appears to be a toned down version of the flagships. It is a refreshed version of the Huawei Y7 Prime that was launched last year.
The Huawei Y7 Prime smartphone comes with a big 5.99-inch 18:9 display without the notch. While in terms of features, the smartphone does not have top of the line specifications, it does introduce popular functionalities such as face unlock, spilt-screen mode, FullView display, AR lens, dual cameras, Android Oreo, and more. Notably, Huawei has not revealed the pricing details of the Y7 Prime 2018, nor is there any word on its release date. However, we do know the smartphone will be available in three colour variants – Black, Blue, and Gold.
