Huawei has been busy lately, with the Nexus 6P for Google and the recent India launch of the Honor 7, but not busy enough to forget about their home market and launch the new Enjoy 5.
The Huawei Enjoy 5, is aimed at the entry-level market keeping price and battery performance at the top of the list. You’ll get an all-metal smartphone with a 5-inch, IPS LCD HD display 1280 x 720p resolution, 1.1Ghz, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, support for 128GB microSD cards, 5MP front camera, 13MP back camera, dual SIM, a 4,000mAh battery, and Android 5.1 Lollipop with Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.0 preinstalled. And yes, the 9.7mm Huawei Enjoy 5 does run 4G LTE wireless, so you’ll get to stay connected to the fastest wireless technology currently available. Huawei has even provided reverse charging, so that you can use your 4,000mAh battery in the device to power charge other devices.
Gizchina News of the week
The Huawei Enjoy 5’s 4,000mAh battery is said to last for 10 days on standby, but we can imagine users getting a good 2 days of battery life with regular use out of the device without worry. The best part of the package is that the device will only cost 999 Yuan, or $158 USD.
The Huawei Enjoy 5 is only available in China, and there’s no word as to whether or not the device will see the broader worldwide market. The third-largest global manufacturer is making its presence known in its home country, which will certainly be a win for both Huawei and the Chinese customer base. The Enjoy 5 will be available in China on Friday, October 16th.
