Since its debut, smartphones from the HUAWEI Y Series range have been designed to offer a large display, long-lasting battery and a good amount of storage for users. Together with EMUI’s intuitive user experience, Huawei’s high-quality product DNA, and their affordable pricing, the HUAWEI Y Series smartphones have been widely favoured by consumers around the world, including South Africa. 

The newest member of the HUAWEI Y Series, the HUAWEI Y5p, is now available in SA. Featuring a 5.45-inch HUAWEI FullView Display, stylish design, a solid camera, long-lasting battery and a standard storage of 32GB, the HUAWEI Y5p is an all-rounder that is also extremely affordable – making it the perfect phone for cash-strapped South Africans who want a smartphone at a good price, but don’t want to sacrifice quality or features. 

FullView Display for immersive viewing

The HUAWEI Y5p sports a 5.45-inch HUAWEI FullView Display for a wider field of view. The 18:9, 5.45-inch LCD display not only gives an exceptional viewing experience but also displays content in vibrant colours. Compared with a 16:9 display, HUAWEI Y5p can display 12.5 percent more content thanks to its high screen-to-body ratio of 81.2 per cent, bringing more fun whether for video playback or gameplay.

A design that will dazzle you and your circle

The HUAWEI Y5p is available in Midnight Black and Phantom Blue. The stunning colour finish manifests Huawei’s smartphone aesthetics, with the delicate engraved textures and wavy lines reflecting light at different angles, creating a unique flare effect that captures consumers’ hearts. 

A good amount of storage for your most treasured memories

The HUAWEI Y5p comes with a standard 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, which will ensure that you have enough space to store all your photos, videos and to download games.  But if you have larger storage needs, then you’re also covered, as the HUAWEI Y5p uses a triple slot design that can house two nano SIMs and one Micro SD (sold separately) that supports an extendable storage of up to 512GB.

A battery that won’t run out of juice too quickly  

With its 3020mAh (typical value) battery, the HUAWEI Y5p at full charge can support 17 hours of continuous video playback, up to 21 hours of 4G calling or 13 hours of internet surfing on 4G. This means users can enjoy more of life with their awesome phone without worrying about having to recharge frequently.

In addition to a big battery, the HUAWEI Y5p supports AI Power-saving technology that can detect background apps that consume too much power and automatically shut them down. In addition, the HUAWEI Y5p also supports a full power consumption detection. After scanning apps that are using up more power, users can activate an Ultra Power Saving mode, Dark Mode and other power-saving modes to get an even longer battery life, which is especially useful for loadshedding! 

An 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera to capture special memories

The HUAWEI Y5p is equipped with an 8MP rear camera that supports HDR mode. This mode offers specific brightness adjustments for photos by brightening the dark parts of your shots and subduing the overexposed parts of your shots. In this way, the camera can reproduce fine details while adding an extra dimension and an artful touch to photos.

The 5MP front camera on the HUAWEI Y5p lets users snap great selfies with ease, while the front sensor can automatically detect ambient light conditions and provide optimal photos.

Solid performance for a great user experience

The HUAWEI Y5p is powered by MediaTek’s octa-core processor that includes eight Cortex-A53 cores. Together with Huawei’s very own AI scheduling technology, the smartphone delivers smooth and fast performance, even after a long periods of use. Whether you’re a gamer or a music aficionado, the HUAWEI Y5p will provide a satisfying user experience for your favourite activities.
