Huawei has quietly launched Huawei Y5 2017 smartphone integrated with an exclusive Easy Key button. With the help of the Easy Key in Huawei Y5 2017, you will be able to perform a wide range of functions using the dedicated button on the left side.
It is possible to open apps or launch the camera using the easy key button. Moreover, you can activate the flashlight in two different methods. You can either press and double tap on the button or double tap and hold it. The company has termed this feature as groundbreaking since Samsung has also integrated a dedicated button for the activation of Bixby virtual assistant.
When it comes to the internals, the Huawei Y5 2017 is equipped with 2GB RAM coupled with 16GB internal storage. Hence, the phone is a significant upgrade to the previous counterparts. You will be able to extend the storage up to 128GB using MicroSD card, which also acts as a SIM slot. Furthermore, the handset features a 3000mAh battery, which is higher than previous editions.

The phone provides support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, AGPS, and Glonass. However, the handset is loaded with EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
