Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa has launched the new Huaweai Y7p phone.

The device offers rear triple-camera setup that includes a 48MP main camera with a wide-aperture lens, an 8MP Super Wide Angle camera for scenic landscape shots and wide-angle video capture, and a 2MP Depth Assist Camera for portraits.

The Huawei Y7p sports Slow-Mo Mode to shoot videos at 480 frames per second (fps), meaning 0.5 seconds of filming produces an eight-second video (at 30fps), playing back the action at 1/16 of the actual speed. The rear triple-camera system supports AI Scene Recognition, which can recognise over 500 scenes across 21 categories including blue sky, food, plant, fireworks and sunset. Each scene is calibrated individually, enabling everyday users to shoot like pros.

Both the front and rear camera on Huawei Y7p support HDR Mode, which is activated when a high lighting ratio scene is detected. Once the shutter is pressed, the device will take three photos in quick succession and combine them into one to achieve a higher dynamic range.

The device comes with a 4Gb RAM+64Gb storage, as wellas a triple-card tray, one of which is for storage expansion via MicroSD card of up to 512Gb.

The Huawei Y7p also has a large 4000mAh battery and supports AI power-saving technology.

The synergy between hardware and software enables up to 47 hours of talking time, 22 hours of continuous video playback, 20 hours of Internet browsing on a 4G connection, or 111 hours of continuous music playback – on a single charge.

The Huawei Y7p is equipped with a 6,39-inch Punch FullView Display that has thinner bezels at the top, left and right sides for a screen-to-body (VA/CG) ratio of 90%. The 19.5:9 display supports a HD+ resolution of 1560×720.

The phone comes with Face Unlock 2.0, plus eye detection that adds extra security.

The Android device is the first phone in South Africa to come with Huawei Mobile Services, Huawei’s new ecosystem. The Huawei AppGallery is also available.
