Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa has launched its new Y-Series smartphone. In recent years, mid-range phones have become an important market segment. Recently the performance of mid-range phones has dramatically improved and Huawei has decided to bring these key features to the South African market.
Likun Zhao, Vice President Huawei Consumer Business Group Southern Africa says: “In today’s market, the devices competing in the same price range as the new Y Series often deliver uninspiring experiences. The Huawei Y-series consumer requires a device that meets their mobile needs but still have a few high end features. There is something that the market has been failing to deliver, until now with our new Huawei Y Series. With it, Huawei is not just disrupting the market, but we are also demonstrating to our audience something far more important: we listen.”
Exuding Personality for Youth to Express Individuality
The Y in the Y Series stands for “young”. In order to diversify the Huawei brand and make it more appealing and accessible to all consumers, Huawei is reimagining its HUAWEI Y Series to better reach the younger generation. In the new Y Series, each device represents a different consumer persona.
The new Y Series enables Huawei to not just empower a new generation with innovative technology, but also offer them a platform to express their individuality while simultaneously matching their unique lifestyles.
A Broader Display for Better Productivity and Greater Fun
Although the Huawei Y Series is a line of affordable handsets targeting the price-sensitive youth segment, every device in the range is packed full of features. With sleek, fashionable designs and immersive, large screens, the new Huawei Y Series sets itself apart from the competition by delivering a first-class appearance and equally quality viewing experience – both in terms of productivity and gaming.
The incredible viewing experience is enabled by Huawei FullView Display. Featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio, the innovative display brings content to life with a 12.5% wider screen than the 16:9 devices in the same body size. Combining wide displays, thin bezels and an ergonomically designed 2.5D curved glass, the Y6 2018 and Y7 2018 devices are all thoughtfully designed for convenient, comfortable one-hand operation.
The wider FullView Display also provide more practical screen space, which is especially useful when Split-Screen Mode is on. This feature enables users to view two apps concurrently on the screen. Thanks to the FullView Display, all content, be it a chat conversation, email or word processing app – can be displayed with crisp clarity in this mode, ideal for young people users who aren’t afraid of juggling multiple activities at once.
Capture Every Fun Moment
