Huawei Y5 Prime 2018

Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 has introduced by the company as an update to the Huawei Y5 2017 budget smartphone. The 2018 comes with a bezel-less display which flows with the current trend.

The Y5 Prime 2018 will be added to the company’s list of budget smartphones already released. This coming just weeks after the P20 flagships graced us with their presence. But do you want a Huawei phone with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage? Stay with me.

Design

Huawei Y5 Prime 2018

Looks totally different from last year’s edition, but not entirely different from what we’ve seen from the company this year. Just like other budget friendly smartphones from the company, the Y5 Prime 2018 sports a Plastic body with a Metal frame that’s stunning and beautiful.

There’s no fingerprint scanner anywhere on the device, this might be a disappointment to many. The rear camera and LED are horizontal at the top left corner. It measures 8.3mm in thickness and weighs just 145g overall. You can get it in Black and Blue colors.

Huawei Y5 Prime 2018

I think Huawei is on a mission with these bezel-less beauties, the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 comes with the trending feature. It’s obvious the narrow bezels are super minimal, while the top and bottom bezel are kept in a moderate level.

The 5.45-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is perfect for standard screen lovers. Boasting of 1440 x 720 pixels in dimension and 295 pixel per inch density, the screen also stretches up to 74% screen to body ratio. You get to enjoy stunning visuals in landscape mode.
