Huawei suffered a lot of blows to the head in 2019 and even then, it managed to stay intact and thrive. Hell, even with the restrictions they managed to generate sizable revenue. Now, they won’t just be able to excel with their previous momentum. The Mate 30 series showed how difficult it would be for Huawei to move on further.
But they may have found a small opening with which they can work. Recently, Huawei launched the Y6s with minimal specifications in the mid-range department that showed some promise for the company. So, building upon that front, Huawei has just launched Huawei Y7p. The Huawei Y7P price in Nepal is set Rs. 23,990.
This is another addition to Huawei’s budget-friendly Y series and it is one of many phones under the Huawei Y7 moniker.
Huawei Y7p Overview
Huawei Y7p is made up mostly of plastic but the gradient finish on the rear gives off metal like feeling – giving it a premium feel. For a budget phone, the bezels on the device are surprisingly thin. Huawei has adapted a hole-punch display up front that goes pretty well with the thin edges. The placement of the buttons and rear fingerprint scanner is quite decent as well.
The Y7p rocks a 6.39” IPS LCD Panel which maintains a screen to body ratio of ~82.4%. The resolution however, tops out at 720p and the pixel density is around 270ppi. For audio, the phone features a downward firing mono speaker and on a side note, it features the same old boring MicroUSB port.
Underneath the plastic exterior, the Y7p houses an Octa-Core Kirin 710F. Paired alongside is a 4/64GB internal setup which should be able to manage just fine. On the surficial level, the phone comes with EMUI 9.1 on top of Android 9.

Huawei Y7p Price in Nepal: Rs. 23,990
Now, check out the cameras. There’s a triple camera array up the rear which has a 48MP f/1.8 sensor as the primary gunner. For support, there’s an 8MP f/2.4 ultrawide and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. Meanwhile in the hole punch setup in the front, there’s an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Finally, powering the entire device is a fairly decent 4000mAh battery that comes in with no so decent 10W standard charger. Here’s one thing to note about the whole device though – there’s no Google Play Services in the device, it comes with Huawei’s own Huawei Mobile Services. You’re stuck with HMS altogether which involves certain compromises. No Google Services, absence of your favorite applications are the basic compromises you may have to deal with.
Huawei Y7P vs Redmi Note 8
The Redmi Note 8 is a perfect device in the category and therefore seems to be a perfect competitor for the Y7p. But, sadly there’s no point in comparing the phones at all. The Redmi Note 8 is on a whole new level than the Y7p.
Because of the glass back, it looks and feels premium in almost every possible way. The FHD+ resolution with higher ppi gives off a totally different vibe off the Redmi Note 8. In a similar fashion, the Snapdragon 665 processor with a lot of room for internals is just plainly out of sight for the Huawei Y7p.
The phones are on near footing when it comes to camera though. Except for an extra 2MP depth sensor, the Y7P has pretty much similar camera configurations. On the battery front too, the phones are quite close but the 18W fast charger tips off the balance towards the Note 8’s favor.
On top of everything else, the Redmi Note 8 hosts GMS which everybody is quite used to. Now, after looking at each and every aspect, I’d prefer taking the Redmi Note 8. And I don’t see any reason as to why I should choose the Y7p.
Huawei Y7p Price in Nepal, Availability
So, the Huawei Y7p is available for Rs. 23,990 and for this price you get Kirin 710F, triple camera, and punch hole HD+ display. Well at this point in time, this spec sheet does not really surprise me. You could get a quad camera and a better processor for more or less the same price.
So, that’s a wrap for now. What are your thoughts on the phone? Do let us know in the comments down below.
