The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 is the latest smartphone from the company to be launched in Kenya. The phone is available for Ksh 17,999 and is the successor to the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 that we reviewed last year. You can get this phone from Jumia and from most offline retail stores including Safaricom. You can learn more about the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 here.
The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 is competing directly with devices such as the Tecno Camon 11, Samsung Galaxy J6+, OPPO A3S and the Infinix Hot 6X. All these are smartphones available in Kenya for almost the same price as the Y7 Prime 2019.
Huawei says that some of the key selling points of the Y7 Prime 2019 include the 6.26-inch Dewdrop display, the dual AI cameras at the back, the 16MP selfie camera, the 4,000mAh battery just to name a few. These specs are way better than the ones we had on the Y7 Prime from 2018.

Speaking at the launch, Steven Li, Head of Eastern Africa Mobile, “HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 is made for today’s dynamic youth who are deeply engaged with the social media culture. Given the rise of video-centric platforms, the HUAWEI Dewdrop Display—first debuted with the flagship HUAWEI Mate 20 Series—lends itself to great viewing experiences thanks to its top class screen-to-body ratio of 86.7 percent. The pearl-shaped notch that houses the 16MP front camera is Huawei’s smallest notch to date; it is situation on the vertical axis of the device, and does not disrupt the harmonious symmetry of the near-full screen design.”
“We are getting into the month of LOVE, what an opportunity to launch one of our mid-range phones that comes in different colours (Red, Blue and Black) in the market. We are glad to officially unveil RED color in the market, a first in the market and a great color to gift your loved one during this valentine’s period.” He concluded.
