Huawei is currently gearing up to launch its new budget smartphone — Huawei Y3 (2018). As the name suggests, this upcoming device is the successor of the Huawei Y3 2017 that was launched last year.
The phone has received the FCC certification and the alleged live image of the phone, along with its key specifications, has been leaked online. The FCC certification passing suggests that the launch of the phone is not far away.
The leaked images show that the device comes with a single camera, dedicated microSD card, and a single SIM slot. But we can’t make out much from the images. As for the specifications, it appears that the handset carries a model number CAG-L22.
Huawei Y3 (2018) seems to have been powered by an entry-level MediaTek MT6737 processor paired along with 1GB RAM. It comes with 8GB of internal storage and as the phone also has a microSD card slot, users can use it to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
The phone has also appeared on Geekbench and the listing reveals that the display carries a low resolution of 480 × 854 pixels. The device will be backed by a 2,200mAh battery. However, what’s interesting is the software on this device.
As per the leaks, the Huawei Y3 (2018) will be running Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box. There are also rumors suggesting that the budget device could be one of the few devices that will come with the support for Project Treble.
Considering this specs for a moment, it seems Huawei Y3 2018 won’t be a banger and there are better options available in the market. In any case, we believe that the price point could be a key factor in this case.
Currently, there is no information available about the phone’s pricing or availability details. Given that the Huawei Y3 2017 edition was launched in the month of May for about $80, we are expecting similar pricing for this upcoming device as well.
