Huawei has officially announced its latest mid-range smartphone Huawei Y9 2019. As the name itself suggests, the smartphone is the successor of the Huawei Y9 (2018) that was announced earlier this year.
The device will come in three color options—Midnight Black, Blue Swarovski, and Aurora Purple and is expected to go on sale in China at the end of this month and will launch globally later. However, the company has not revealed pricing for the phone.
The phone comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ display in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a 2.5D curved glass on top. It is powered by the company’s in-house HISilicon Kirin 710 chipset, which we have already seen in the Huawei Nova 3i.
The phone comes in two memory variants- a 64GB version with 4GB RAM and a 128GB version with 6GB RAM. A microSD card slot allows the user to enhance the storage.
Coming to the optics, there is a 16MP + 2MP camera on the back side along with an LED flash, stacked vertically in the top-left corner. On the front side, there’s a dual-camera setup, featuring a 13MP + 2MP secondary sensor.
The phone sports a fingerprint scanner at its back which company claims, can unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds.
Huawei Y9 2019 packs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with the company’s own custom EMUI 8.2 interface on top. It drives power from a 4000mAh battery that supports fast charging technology.
