Huawei plans Y5 II smartphone

Online sources have shared some interesting information regarding Huawei’s plans for the budget smartphone market in the near future. Apparently the Chinese company plans to release a new budget communicator in Q2 2016. The device will be called Y5 II and will retire the Y5 smartphone, which was released a year ago.

The Y5 II will not be an incremental upgrade – instead the device will feature major improvements. For instance the Y5 came with a Snapdragon 210 processor with four cores at 1.1 GHz. The Y5 II will have a MediaTek MT6735P SoC with four cores at 1.3 GHz. In addition the display size will grow from 4.5 inches to 5 inches but the working resolution will stay the same at 1280 x 720 pixels. The RAM and internal memory will stay the same at 1 GB and 8 GB, respectively. In addition to this the rear camera will be an 8-megapixel one up from the 5 MP unit in the Y5. The front camera will stay the same at 2 MP. The battery is also improved from 2000 mAh to 2200 mAh. Despite the improvements the Y5 II will weigh less than the Y5 – the device will be 135 grams heavy. The Y5 is 142 grams.

The Huawei Y5 II will run Android 5.1 Lollipop when it arrives in Q2 2016. The smartphone will sell for around USD 165.
