Huawei Y9 2019, which had very recently surfaced with leaked rumors and specs, is now official! The Huawei Y9 2018 was a well received product in the mid-range section. And we can expect the same from the 2019 version of the phone. The new Y9 sports more or less the same specs with some upgrades.
Huawei’s quad-camera setup also makes it way here. The rear camera setup is a combination of 16 MP with PDAF and a 2 MP depth sensor. Also, the front camera features a 13 MP sensor with a 2 MP depth sensor. And both these camera setups feature Huawei’s AI photography technology. By the looks of it, it seems like Huawei is really focusing on getting good portrait images. But, with 2 MP depth sensors, how much of it will be possible? We will see that in time.
Moving along, the Huawei Y9 2019 features a large 6.5″ Full View Display with 3D curved design. The display is a Full HD+ one, with 1080 x 2340 resolution. This phone, too, sports the infamous notch, but knowing Huawei, the notch is a bit smaller than other devices. These models will also come in two-toned color variants.
Under the hood, an Octa-core Kirin 710 SoC powers the phone. The company claims integration of AI Power 7.0 in the chipset to bring better user experience. Again, how will that fare in real life, we’re eagerly waiting to find out. This phone comes in two variants. The base model has a 4 GB RAM, with 64 GB of storage, while another variant has 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. However, both the phones feature a microSD card slot which can expand the memory up to 400 GB.
It also has a large battery of 4000 mAh, and will run on Android 8.2 Oreo, with EMUI 8.2 on top. Another interesting feature about this phone is its Fingerprint 4.0 technology. The company claims that it has fingerprint navigation, which helps users manage all notifications with one key.
Huawei’s Y-series phones are always a value for money. And this can also have good pricing. The phone will hit the market by mid-October. Now, that maybe a bit early for something with 2019 in its name. But with so many smartphone companies pumping out phones, I guess Huawei doesn’t want to be left out. However, there is no word on its pricing yet.
