Huawei Y7a Officially Launched, Ships With Kirin 710a, USB-C and 48MP Quad Camera


Huawei has officially launched Huawei Y7a, its latest budget device. The Huawei Y7a joins its other siblings in the Y series including the Huawei Y5p, Huawei Y6p, Huawei Y7p, Huawei Y8p and Huawei Y9a.

Huawei Y7a features a 6.67″ Full HD+ LCD screen with a punch hole cutout at the middle that accomodates the 8MP selfie camera.

Running the show is a Kirin 710a chip coupled with 4GB of storage and either 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage which you can expand with an external microSD card.

You Can Actually Live on an Android Smartphone Lacking Google’s Apps and Services. Here’s How I Did It:

Like its siblings launched this year, Google’s apps and services are lacking. You, however, get EMUI 10.1, Android 10 and Huawei’s AppGallery.

For optics, we get a 48MP quad camera setup at the back that also includes an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor for bokeh shots.

Huawei Y7a ships with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the power button, a headphone jack and a USB-C charging port.

Huawei Y7a comes with a huge 5000mAh battery and will support 22.5W fast charging.

Huawei Y7a will come in various colours including Blush Gold, Crush Green and Midnight Black.

We expect it to cost around Ksh 19,000 when it launches locally.
