HUAWEI Y7a: The Y Smartphone with 48MP Quad Camera, BIG Screen & Battery at only P8,999!

As we approach the last 2 months before bidding goodbye to 2020 (yay!), HUAWEI unleashes yet another beast created especially for the social savvy influential gen Zs.

According to HUAWEI’s latest press release, “Young people have learned to harness their innate creativity to share it with a 24/7 audience, empowered by the smart technology in their hands. Gen Zs are known to be passionate in displaying their individuality, in pursuing their passions and in relentlessly searching for what is real and true.

It is these characteristics that inspire Huawei’s Y Series of smartphones – youth-focused devices that cover a wide range of hobbies and interests, enabling users to be real and be the best version of themselves—no matter what they do.”

And so before the year ends, HUAWEI decides to refresh and revamp the Y Series to a more fresh, youthful vibe packed with impressive hardware and software specs at an unbelievably low price of only P8,999! It’s called the HUAWEI Y7a – the Y smartphone made just for YOU!

Here are its key features:

48MP High-Resolution Quad Camera

Let’s be honest, when buying a new smartphone, CAMERA is everything! It’s the 1st feature we check out and our primary reason to upgrade. For only P8,999, the HUAWEI Y7a boasts of a 48MP Quad Camera system to ensure Gen Zs get to create and express themselves more. The Y7a’s Quad AI Camera lets you record treasured moments with a simple snap. It includes a 48MP High-Resolution Main Camera, an 8MP 120° UltraWide Angle Camera, a 2MP Macro Camera and a 2MP Depth Camera.

The 48MP high-resolution main camera has a 1/2-inch sensor and f/1.8 aperture to increase light intake for lower noise and better image quality. A high-resolution, huge sensor and wide aperture like this make it ideal for capturing landscapes and portraits with crisp and clear details even when zoomed in.

The HUAWEI Y7a also features Night Mode to provide high sensitivity and capture stunning photos even in extremely dark environments.

Its 8MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera has a 120° field of view for capturing group or landscape photos and videos. While the 2MP Macro Camera allows users to take close up shots for up to 4cm from the lens.

Meanwhile, a 2MP Depth Camera works with the main camera to create big aperture effects that make subjects look sharper and stand out from the background. This is ideal for creating portraits, food and objects against a complicated background.

Let the camwhoring carry on with the HUAWEI Y7a’s 8MP front-facing camera that allows Gen Z’s to easily take selfies even in low-light environments. An all-new AI beauty feature offers facial enhancements to assure subjects always look their best.
