Huawei Y5 Lite Android Go smartphone goes official with 5.45-inch 18:9 Display

Chinese technology brand Huawei recently launched the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 smartphone. And, further expanding its portfolio of Y series smartphones, the company has now launched a new smartphone called Huawei Y5 Lite.

This should make it clear that the Huawei Y5 Lite doesn’t come with hardware that would make playing PUBG Mobile a great experience. The Y5 Lite is an entry-level smartphone which is powered by MediaTek’s MT6739 quad-core processor which is coupled with 1 GB RAM. The smartphone has 16 GB of internal storage, but, it also has a dedicated slot for microSD card that allows storage expansion up to 256 GB.

The Huawei Y5 Lite features a 5.45-inch display, but, this isn’t the traditional 16:9 display you are looking at. Instead, it’s a fairly modern 18:9 tall display having a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 295 ppi.

In terms of optics, the Huawei Y5 Lite features an 8 MP camera at the back and a 5 MP camera on the front. The former has f/2.0 aperture whereas the latter has f/2.2 aperture. The smartphone is offered in Blue and Black colors, and, keeping the lights on is a 3020 mAh battery which draws power from a micro USB port.
