Huawei follows in the footsteps of Asus, Nokia (HMD Global) and Alcatel, entering the Android Go family of producers. Meet Huawei Y3 2018 – the first smartphone of this manufacturer with truncated Android for weaker devices. What does the Huawei Y3 2018 offer?
Specification Huawei Y3 2018
The smartphone is equipped with a display with a diagonal of 5 "and a resolution of 854 x 480 px Looking from the perspective of 2018, the sharpness of the image will leave much to be desired, but taking into account the target price segment of the device and used in this device SoC – Mediatek MT6737M – it is reasonable It's a pity that the processor is supported by only 1GB of RAM memory, the manufacturer has predicted 8 GB of flash memory, which will of course be reduced by Android Go. Huawei also boasts of using the F2FS file system, which was designed specifically for semiconductor memories and its main task is to speed up the read and write operations, thereby improving the operation of the entire system.The 2280 mAh cell is responsible for the energy efficiency, which is really a small value, but in combination with the rest of the components it should provide a reasonable working time at one being unloaded. Communication facilities include LTE, 2.4GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and GPS with A-GPS. The smartphone measures 73.7 x 145.1 x 9.45 mm and weighs up to 180g. As for such a small phone made of plastic, it is quite heavy and large. We find a camera with 8MP (f / 2.0) resolution with a single LED diode and Autofocus. This is definitely not a model for selfie fans , the front camera has only 2MP resolution and does not have autofocus. The exact price of the new budget model from Huawei is not yet known, but will probably be around 100 dollars . The model will be available in 3 colors – white, gray and gold.
Is such a smartphone at all possible in 2018?
In emerging markets, where the entire Android Go program is targeted, it has a chance. However, in the face of another representative of the same family – Nokia 1, which has similar technical specification and a bit better valued for it, may have significant problems in order to achieve market success. Not to mention the competition like the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, which is available at the same price.
