Design and display

Unique faux-leather finish

Want your phone to stand out from the rest? The faux-leather on the back of the Huawei Y5 gives this phone a premium look and feel. The material is environmentally friendly and you won’t have to worry about it getting scuffed or dirty – it has an anti-fingerprint finish and it’s resistant to dirt.

Vibrant Dewdrop screen

Lose yourself in your favourite box sets and movies. The Y5 2019 has an 84% screen-to-body ratio, so you can focus on the bright, beautiful screen. 


Lowlight perfection

Night-time photography just got that much easier. The Y5 has a 13MP main camera with a large aperture, which lets in up to 50% more light. So you can snap away at that sunset and get great low-light shots.

Bring selfies to life

Capture your best side with the Y5’s 5MP selfie camera. It has a toning flash to let in natural colour, so even when you’re out at night you can get the perfect profile pic (without the trial and error). 

Under the hood

All the space you need

There’s 16GB of built-in storage on the Huawei Y5 – that’s loads of room for your apps, games and photos. And if you think you’ll need more, you can add a microSD card and boost your space.

Battery life that won’t let you down

Thanks to a large battery and power-saving technology, the Huawei Y5 has enough power to get through up to 16 hours of watching downloaded shows, or up to 74 hours of listening to music. That’s long haul flights sorted.
