Impressively large display and standout design
The HUAWEI Y5p is equipped with an incredible 5.45-inch FullView Display that offers an expansive viewing space. Featuring narrow bezels on the two sides, the 18:9 HD+ (1440×720) panel provides an optimal experience that is especially suited for consuming multimedia content, while allowing it to remain highly compact. The Arc design complements the form factor to ensure a comfortable grip even over long periods of one-handed use. Optimisations have also been made to the antenna for better signal reception regardless of how the device is held.
On the back, the square camera module resembles the classic look of car headlights, with two circular elements located side by side, plus a third fog lamp-like cut-out underneath completing the look. Surrounding the module are etched lines forming an irregular series of ripples that produce a captivating glare effect. The HUAWEI Y5p is available in three colours: Midnight Black, Phantom Blue and Mint Green. The latter two are created in a special triple-coat paint process that gives the smartphone a unique sheen.
Equipped to excel in all essential tasks
Powered by an octa-core processor, the HUAWEI Y5p is equipped to adequately handle everyday tasks with extreme efficiency. This performance synergises with the 32GB of internal storage to cover the data storage needs of average users. For power users or those with a diverse taste in music or games, an expansion slot as part of the dual SIM card tray lets users expand storage by up to 512GB. Users can casually use the smartphone throughout the day thanks to large 3020mAh battery embedded within. The smartphone can support up to 17 hours of continuous video playback or 13 hours of continuous internet surfing on 4G.
Handy cameras for any occasion
The 8MP rear camera includes an f/2.0 large aperture for improved light intake and generating gorgeous photos. The HUAWEI Y5p supports HDR Mode, which superimposes multiple frames into a composite image that features better dynamic range. On the front is a 5MP Selfie Camera for capturing stunning selfies that are instantly social-media ready. The front camera also supports Face Unlock to facilitate a smooth and convenient device unlock experience.
EMUI 10.1 delivers an intuitive experience
Running EMUI 10.1, the latest version of Huawei’s Android-based custom operating system, the HUAWEI Y5p comes with a range of system optimisations and intuitive features that enhance the user experience. The HUAWEI EROFS on EMUI 10.1 improves random read speed and response rate. Meanwhile it can provide around 2GB of additional storage for storing 1,000 more images or 500 more audio files. Simple Mode enlarges icons and font sizes for a simpler user interface, while Party Mode lets users wirelessly chain multiple devices together to create a multi-channel sound system that will bring life to any party.
HUAWEI Y5p is pre-installed with AppGallery, Huawei’s official app marketplace, which offers a wealth of global and localised apps that enrich the Huawei device user experience. Users can also enjoy a rich library of quality entertainment media on HUAWEI Video, HUAWEI Music and HUAWEI Reader, with new content from top providers being added on a continuous basis.
