Huawei has sparked off another competition in the Smartphone market with introduction of a stylish smartphone, Y7 Prime 2019.
This is just after introducing another flagship product, Y9 2019 just penultimate week.
Just like the Y9, Y7 is also another jaw dropping Artificial Intelligence- AI camera.
Huawei said the 13 mega pixel camera phone is a compelling product especially in today’s video-centric social media landscape.
Y7 is said to be made for today’s dynamic Nigerian who is deeply engaged with social culture.
With vertically aligned camera system, the device shares a striking resemblance with a compact digital camera. This is deliberate as the gadget was designed to offer the best smartphone photography experience amongst devices of its class. At the back, enclosed in a durable ceramic-like back cover and metallic chassis is a 13+2MP AI camera.
The primary 13MP camera has a wide aperture of f/1.8 with 16 virtual f-stop to provide granular controls over depth of field effects. Whether the user wants to take a portrait with clear separation between the primary object and background, or a landscape photo where every object in its field of view is clean and crisp, device delivers with great efficacy. It also supports Master AI, with Huawei Y7 Prime 2019; recognises 22 categories of objects and scenes.
The improved camera in the new Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 captures 50 per cent more light information compared to its predecessor. In Night Mode, the device combines the light information of four photos taken in quick succession to produce a final image that is bright, clean, and full of details. Similarly, in HDR Mode, it puts together three images taken at different exposures to create a final image with better dynamic range. One of the scenarios HDR Mode excels in is taking photos of objects lit by backlight- the digital combination allows the camera to capture the details of objects that are placed in darker parts of the image.
The device comes with EMUI 8.2. Alongside background optimizations that enhance system operational smoothness, EMUI 8.2 features a range of battery-saving measures that help users make the most of their device. For instance, EMUI features a Battery-Saving Mode that disables certain features on the phone for better battery efficiency. These features synergize with the class-leading 4000Mah battery, offering two-day battery life for everyday users.
Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 oct-core SoC.
The 14nm SoC features eight ARM Cortex-A53 high efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz to deliver great multi-core performance at superb battery efficiency. It runs with an Adreno 506 GPU with Vulkan support, delivering smooth performance in new top mobile titles. The device also supports expandable storage of up to 512GB via the microSD card slot.
