Huawei’s new budget handset is now here. The Huawei Y3 2017, a member of the Y-series, is aimed for those who are looking for a basic Android smartphone.
With that said, the Huawei Y3 2017 has nothing but the most basic set of features. It has a decent-sized 5-inch TN screen with only a FWVGA resolution. It also packs a MediaTek quad-core processor with only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage.
At the front, we have a 2-megapixel selfie camera, while an 8-megapixel shooter is can be seen on the back. It’s also equipped with an acceptable 2200mAh non-removable battery.
Thankfully, the phone has 4G LTE connectivity, which is a plus because it’s rare to see it at this caliber. But on the downside, it only runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
