Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Design And Display
The design of the Huawei Y7 Pro is pretty standard. The 6.2-inch 720p IPS LCD screen takes up 80% of the front, leaving just enough room at the top for the small U-shaped notch which houses the front-facing camera. There is also a significant amount of chin down below on which the Huawei logo is written.
The Logo is also written at the back of the device. No fingerprint sensor here and the only form of biometric authentication/verification is the Face Unlock via the front facing camera. Dual cameras take up the top left corner of the device’s back with an LED flash underneath. The device weighs just 168 grams, measures 8.1mm in thickness and comes in two colours; Aurora Green and Black.
