Huawei has launched the Huawei Y5 in Kenya despite the storm that has been brought up by Trump and Company.
This phone is going to surely shake up the market though it is not it is not clear how Kenyans are going to receive it owing to the recent development that Huawei devices will have limited access to Google applications.
The Y series in popular in Kenya and in the past, it has been well received with the Y6 Prime 2019 being popular among many a youth.
With the launch of Huawei Y5, Huawei seems to be trusting that the soar relation with America won’t affect its market in Africa.
I wrote about this device in depth here, but for your reading pleasure, this is what to expect from the device;
- Quad-Core MT6761 Processor.
- 5.71’’ HD Display.
- 2GB RAM + 32GBGB Internal Memory.
- 5MP Front) + 13 MP (Back) Camera.
- 3020mAh Battery.
- EMUI 9.0 on top of 9.0 Pie
I have had the opportunity to test the Huawei Y5 and I must say that, though the specs may be appealing, this is just another mid-range phone that offers nothing out of the ordinary. At Ksh. 11499.00, the price just serves it right.
Some of the things that I noted out of this device is that I does not have the capabilities of fast charging. Also missing is that it does not have a fingerprint scanner, a capability that most of us cannot do without at this age and time.
During the launch, this is what Deputy President Stephen Li Said, “We would like to assure our customers that the current crisis does not affect out local operation. Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after sell service to all existing products covering those that have been sold or are still in stock’’.
This phone is expect to hit the local stores and online platforms such as Jumia, Masoko and Kilimall in the coming days.
