Both handsets feature a faux-metal design and are made of plastic. They are available in a variety of colour options including Rose Pink, Sky Blue, Arctic White, Obsidian Black, and Sand Gold. The unique bit here is the ring around the camera module that lights up in different colours to reveal notifications, incoming calls and more.
The Y3 II and the Y5 II do share a few specifications. This would be the 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD card slot. Both smartphones also feature Android 5.1 Lollipop with the company’s proprietary EMUI 3.1 skinning.
Now for the differences that set them apart. The Huawei Y3 II features a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixels) display. Inside, we find a quad-core MediaTek MT6582M SoC clocked at 1GHz. The smartphone sports a 5MP rear camera with an LED flash and a 2MP front-facing unit for selfies. The handset supports 3G bands, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. A 2100mAh battery completes the package.
Next up we have the Y5 II that features a bigger 5-inch HD display. Behind it sits a quad-core MediaTek MT6735P SoC clocked at 1.3GHz. The cameras include an 8MP sensor with a dual LED flash, while a 2MP sensor takes care of selfies. The handset supports 4G bands, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and is powered by a 2200mAh battery.
