Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 launches with a 6.26″ HD+ display, Snapdragon 450, and 4000mAh battery

Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer Huawei has just launched the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019, expanding its low-end Y series smartphone range. While it features the budget Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 system-on-chip and “only” 3GB of RAM, it does pack a massive 4,000 mAh battery and a 6.26-inch 1520×720 display (19:9 aspect ratio). Just like the Huawei P Smart 2019, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 features a waterdrop notch – which the company is calling “dewdrop.” The notch houses the 16MP front camera with the earpiece sitting above it.

The Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 has been announced on Vietnamese social media channels thus far, retailing at a price of VND 3,990,000, roughly $170. The device comes in two colors – Aurora Green and Black and features a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is no fingerprint sensor present, but the device supports face unlock on top of the usual options like the pattern, pin, or password. It also charges via microUSB, which is strange for a device in 2018/19. The company has said that the camera has AI abilities, which probably refers to their automatic scene detection and low-light AI-assisted image stabilization. Don’t expect this device to be a particularly great shooter, given its low price.

The Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is already on sale in Vietnam and comes with a free Bluetooth speaker if purchased before January 6th. It is unknown when it will launch outside of Vietnam, as there has been no word on any of the company’s other social media channels. When it launches in Europe, it should roughly cost around €140. It’s certainly an interesting smartphone, as it also marks a temporary departure from Huawei’s in-house HiSilicon Kirin chipsets, though it’s probably done to keep costs low.

Note: Huawei has stopped providing official bootloader unlock codes for its devices. Therefore, the bootloader of the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 cannot be unlocked, which means that users cannot flash Magisk/TWRP/AOSP-based custom ROMs.
