Huawei has just launched the Y9 2018 with a price tag of Rs 25,900. It features four cameras, a huge battery, decent internals, and an 18:9 FullView display. The phone will be available starting 8th of April, 2018.
The Y9 2018 comes with a 5.93″ 18:9 FHD 2160×1080 resolution display. Like the Nova 2i, the new Y9 2018 also features four Intelligent cameras. The back is packed with a f/2.0 aperture 13MP + 2MP combo. Likewise, the front has a f/2.2 aperture with 16MP + 2MP setup.
The dual cameras will help with portrait shots and hardware level bokeh effects. The front also features Selfie Beautify 5.0, which supports portrait mode, hand gestures, funny cosplay effects and smart toning adjust.
The Huawei Y9 2018 shares the same Kirin 659 processor which we saw on the Nova 2i, so performance should be identical. Although the Y9 2018 only comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, but we do get a dedicated microSD slot that is expandable up to 256GB.
The Y9 2018 runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 out of the box. The new version comes with improved system optimization (F2FS), Smart Face Unlock and Fingerprint 4.0.
A 4000mAh battery runs the show, and thanks to the power efficient 16nm processor and software optimizations, Huawei promises a minimum of 1.7 days of usage, even for heavy users. The smartphone will be available in Black, Gold and Blue color options.
