Huawei Y7p Features

Others are group photos and wide-angle video capture, and a 2MP depth assists camera for simulating realistic shallow depth-of-field effects that are a staple of any breath-taking portraits.
Equipped with a large 1/2-inch sensor, the HUAWEI Y7p also excels in low light scenarios, producing clear, low noise images that are rich with colours and details whether the user is shooting in broad daylight or at night. Night Mode also makes a return, supporting stabilization for handheld shots taken with up to a six-second exposure for easy detail-packed low-light shots.
Upon detecting that the user is shooting with backlight, the camera will turn on HDR Mode, which can combine three frames taken in quick succession to create a stunning photo that has a higher dynamic range.
Like many other Huawei smartphones, HUAWEI Y7p also features AI Scene Recognition, enabling the rear cameras to recognise over 500 scenes and apply the real-time custom enhancement to turn works of novices into masterpieces. Additionally, 480fps video capture enables users to capture slow-motion videos that playback at 1/16 normal speed.
Embedded underneath the Punch FullView display, is a powerful 8MP front camera that supports Huawei’s camera AI algorithms. Portrait Mode1 produces gorgeous photos and selfies by applying custom optimisations based on a subject’s face while retaining the details on their faces.
Additionally, the front camera supports HDR Mode for stunning selfies in a high dynamic range. The front camera uses AI Scene Recognition which enables it to recognise up to eight scenes including blue sky, plants, night scene, and more, optimizing the settings required for the perfect shot.
Also, the front camera supports Face Unlock 2.0 for speedy device unlock.
Trendy Design with a 6.39’’ Punch Fullview Display
Designed to be a showstopper, the HUAWEI Y7p is equipped with a gorgeous Punch FullView Display. Measuring at 6.39 inches diagonally and with thin bezels, the 19.5:9 display supports an HD resolution of 1560×720 for displaying fine details with vivid clarity.
At the top left corner is one of the industry’s smallest blind holes measuring at just 4.5mm wide providing an opening for the front camera with minimal compromise in the viewing experience. With a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio2, the display makes watching any video and gaming an absolute joy. Additionally, HUAWEI Y7p has a fingerprint scanner at the back to provide another convenient and secure means for device unlock.
The back of HUAWEI Y7p is layered on top of a reflective layer to produce a futuristic glare effect. The mid-frame seamlessly connects the two sides, producing a streamlined, uni-body look that is both aesthetically pleasing and makes for a more comfortable grip.
The smartphone comes in classic Midnight Black and unique Aurora Blue colours. The Aurora Blue variant uses blue and green gradients to create a distinguishable and fashionable look.
