Huawei Y5 Lite 2017 will be an operator bestseller. What will make it so special?
Five years ago, no one would have believed that Huawei would become the third largest smartphone maker in the world. Meanwhile, the company, thanks to great smartphones, good marketing and investment in, among others, working on the 5G network, has become a true tycoon. Soon it will be incorporated into the Google program designed for budget models, that is, Androis Go. What can we expect?
You probably know the Y series from Huawei. It consists of the weakest phones themselves, which must convince themselves not by their specs, looks or multimedia, but by a reasonable price. The fact that, in most cases, operators offer them for PLN 1 is still significant. I myself had the opportunity to test various representatives of this family and you can see that they are aimed at less demanding users.
So it is not surprising that the manufacturer is working on a new low-end smartphone with different software. While ordinary full-fledged Android doesn’t do very well with 1 or 1.5GB of RAM and a weak processor, Android Go is the only possible effective route here. After all, thanks to all the elements that are thinner and offer less demanding applications, with the Go note in the name, a given phone can perform quite well.
Weak but interesting
According to the system files that users of the xda developer forum have seen, the next low-end will be called Huawei Y5 Lite 2018. It will be powered by a Mediatek MT6737M quad-core processor (4 x ARM Cortex A53 and ARM Mali T720MP1), supplemented by 1 GB of RAM. The interface, on the other hand, will be displayed on a 5-inch screen with a low resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. Well sadly that’s the specs from the Android Go news.
When looking at the possibilities of new software, the future of all the cheapest and weakest smartphones must be considered. I will not be surprised if in 2018 we meet more representatives of the Y series with this version of the system: the zetaphones will gain a second life and should finally work decently.
