Huawei Y7 (2018) seen sporting an 18:9 display in leaked press render

“The Huawei Y7 (2018) is expected to be a mid-range offering with an 18:9 display and all-metal build”

The Chinese handset maker Huawei recently launched its latest Y-series smartphone – Huawei Y9 (2018) in Thailand. The highlights of this handset happen to be the 5.93-inch FullView display and quad cameras. Now, it seems that the brand is working on yet another Y-series smartphone – the Huawei Y7 (2018). An official-looking press render of the handset has been leaked online, giving us a glimpse at the upcoming device.

In the image, we can see that the fascia of the handset is the same as the Y9 (2018) launched earlier. The new phone features an 18:9 display, but the exact dimensions are not known as of now. There are hardly any bezels on the sides, and minimal bezels on top and bottom with the Huawei branding on the chin. The lack of bezels on the front means that the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the rear panel. The rear panel of the handset is also home to single camera module in the top left corner, unlike the Y9 (2018) which flaunts a dual camera module. Further, we can see the power button and volume rockers on the right edge with a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom.


To recap on Y9 (2018), the handset comes with a 5.93-inch FullView display, which offers an 18:9 aspect ratio and full HD+ resolution. The smartphone is powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core Kirin 659 processor mated to 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. In terms of optics, there is a 13MP + 2MP dual shooter on the rear, along with a 16MP + 2MP module for selfies. In terms of software, the Y9 (2018) runs EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. A 4,000mAh battery under the hood completes the spec sheet.

As of now, there is no word on the pricing and availability of the Huawei Y7 (2018). However, we will bring you more updates whenever they emerge.
