Design and Display
As hinted in the introductory paragraph, the Huawei Y7a is a spitting image of the Huawei O Smart 2021 and as such we have identical chassis design on both smartphones. Telling them apart by just mere perusing their chassis is near impossible.
On the rear of this device, we have a square camera module that keeps four cameras in a vertical position. You will also find an LED flash in the camera module. Also on the rear is the Huawei branding, which indicates its a Huawei smartphone.
Upfront, we have got a 5.57 inch IPS LCD with a punch-hole camera. This display has a resolution of 1080 x 2400, a 20:9 aspect ratio, and a density of 395 PPI
The Huawei Y7a comes in three color variants, they include Crush Green, Blush Gold, and Midnight Black.
The camera department on the Huawei Y7a bears a set of four cameras on the rear and a single camera up front. Which are the same as seen on the Huawei P Smart 2021.
On the rear, we have got a 48MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 120˚ field of view. We also have a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera, both having an aperture of f/2.4.
Upfront, we have got a single 8MP front shooter instilled in a hole punch on the display. This camera has an aperture of f/2.0.
Hardware and Software
in the performance hardware department, we have an Octa-core Kirin 710A processor, 4GB of RAM, storage options that include 64GB and 128GB. Please note that this storage variant sets it apart from the Huawei P smart 20201, which only has a single 128GB variant.
Also supporting the performance on here is a Mali-G51 MP4 graphics processing unit and non-removable 5000mAh Li-Po battery. Enthusiats will also get a 22.5W fast charge capacity.
On the software side, we have got EMUI 10.1 running on the Android 10 operating system. However, please note that there is Google service support here, due to the US trade-ban currently plaguing Huawei.
The Huawei Y7a features a USB Type-C 2.0 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also features low energy Bluetooth 5.1, and Wifi.
Internet connectivity here is capped at 4G, which means enthusiasts won’t have the luxury of 5G internet speed for downloads, uploads, and streaming.
Huawei Y7a Price and Availability
The price of the Huawei Y7a starts at $192, which translates to 73,152 Naira in dollars, 1,120 GHC in Ghana, and 20,900 KHS in Kenya.
