The Huawei Y series saw exciting new additions to their array of smartphones earlier this year. One of their innovations is the latest Huawei Y5 2019, introduced with thrilling new features for the Huawei user’s convenience.

The new Huawei Y5 2019 runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9 out-of-the-box. The new Y5 2019 comes with 32GB storage, and has a dedicated slot for microSD card that allows storage expansion by up to 512GB. Furthermore, the device comes equipped with a 3,020mAh battery which draws power from a microUSB port. Huawei lab tests show that the model can easily run for 10 hours in a 4G network connection, play music non-stop for up to 74 hours or watch locally stored videos for up to 16 hours. Even intense users should only need to charge once a day.

The Y5 2019’s 5.71-inch and 19:9 DewDrop display, together with the smaller notches, enables a more futuristic tech feel as well as the high screen-to-body ratio provides an immersive viewing experience, whether the user is browsing the internet, watching videos or playing games. It also comes with a premium bezel-less display design that allows comfortable one-handed operation, even though the screen is of a relatively large size. The new Huawei Y5 2019 is a delight in storage as it comes with comparatively maximised memory usage, with the standard edition consisting of a 32GB ROM. It adopts the company’s EROFS in-depth memory optimisation technology that effectively compresses system software, allowing users to enjoy more storage space. It also has Huawei’s unique three-slot card holder which allows the insertion of two nano-SIM cards and one memory card, allowing the expansion of memory storage up to 512 GB.

Huawei Sri Lanka Consumer Business Group Country Head Peter Liu commented, “Huawei has consistently offered the best smartphone devices to our valued customer base to improve our clientele and all to develop our platform. We have gained wide and powerful recognition throughout this journey, which is an immense encouragement to introduce many new devices to the large array of our smartphones, each more sophisticated and more comfortable to users. We are proud to introduce the Huawei’s New Y5 2019 into the market, especially as its capabilities allow users a great battery life and salutes technology and fashion with the leather like finish of the phone”

The photographic capabilities of the Huawei Y5 2019 is astounding, as it entails a 13MP rear camera, ensuring crystal-clear image quality, as well as incredible light sensitivity with its aperture of f/1.8, allowing improved image quality in low-light environments, significantly better focus, noise reduction and clarity. It also comes with a 5MP front camera with intelligent beautification algorithms, enabling the application of effects based on the user’s facial features, ensuring more natural results. The device’s front camera supports skin smoothing, face contouring, eye brightening and spot removal. Additionally, the front camera features a soft front light, which works with LCD light compensation to add mellow circular lighting for your selfies in insufficient lighting.

The DewDrop display brings a new type of human-machine interaction while also making navigation easier. The Huawei Y5 2019 is also engineered to protect your eyes, as it has passed TÜV Rheinland’s standards for low blue light and photo-biological safety. The screen can filter harmful blue light emissions and intelligently adjust the colour temperature and brightness to ease eye fatigue. The New Huawei Y5 2019 will be available in three colours – Midnight Black, Amber Brown, and Sapphire Blue at all Singer Outlets Island wide for an introductory price of Rs. 19,999.
