Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 was the first smartphone from Huawei to feature a motorized pop-up camera. It was first launched in January but the device landed in South Asia around a time where Huawei was still bouncing back from the trade-ban imposed by the US. After almost a year, we take a look at how the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 fares against its competition in its price range in Nepal.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Overview
Design and Display
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes with a 6.59-inch IPS LCD panel. It comes with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The bezels around the display are slim except for the bottom where it is more profound than on the other three sides. It has a motorized pop-up mechanism to house the front camera. Thanks to that, there are no notches and punch holes and the screen looks a lot cleaner than previous Huawei smartphones.
Talking about the Nepalese market, it was Vivo, with devices like Vivo Y17, that made triple camera in the lower end of the market a trend. Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 follows the same trend. It comes with a 16MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, the device carries a 16MP selfie camera. A motorized pop-up mechanism reveals it only it is to be used.
Performance and Memory
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes with Kirin 710F under the hood. It is something we see in a lot of budget and mid-range smartphones. It is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. If the storage onboard seems insufficient to you, you can expand it up to 512GB via a dedicated microSD card slot. The device will handle your day to day activity but you won’t be satisfied with gaming on this one. The device runs on EMUI 9.0 which is based in Android Pie.
Battery and Others
The device packs a massive battery of 4,000mAh battery and you can charge it via the Type-C port provided. For security, it comes with a capacitive fingerprint sensor that is mounted on the back of the device. You get a gorgeous dual-tone finish on the back of the device which is available in two color options – Emerald Green and Sapphire Blue.
One may argue that phones like Oppo F11 Pro and Vivo V15 also provide the same kinds of features, but on the contrary, the Y9 Prime costs way less than what those two phones do. If this doesn’t get you excited, then the triple camera setup at the rear will surely do.
