Huawei keeps exciting its smartphone aficionados across the world with the launch of new devices for all segments every now and then. The latest in the mid-range sector is the Huawei Y9 Prime (2019).

We’ll discover more as we proceed with the article.

Huawei Y9 Prime (2019) Features (Preview)

As you’ll expect from a phone with a pop-up camera, there’s no notch cutout in any part of the device. The screen is almost without any bezels save the bezel placed at the bottom. On the right side, the volume rocker and power button are well-positioned to perform their roles.

In colourations of Emerald Green, Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue, the Huawei Y9 Prime (2019) fits into the taste prescription of most people. Add to the fact that the motorized 16MP camera slides out whenever selfies are to be captured. That’s class.

Still, on photography, the rear region is occupied by 16MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP depth shooters. A LED flash sits underneath these shooters to add brightness in poorly lit areas. Videos to the tune of 1080p can be recorded with the rear cameras.

When the images are snapped, you can view them in full-screen mode on the 6.59-inch LTPS IPS touchscreen. What’s more, you get the 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution to assure you’re getting the best quality.

With that said, you can operate the phone for as long as you want thanks to the 4,000mAh battery. As the Kirin 710F SoC is on board, speedy charging skills made it out with the smartphone. The Kirin SoC works dynamically with its Octa-core 2.2GHz processor and Mali-G51 MP4 GPU.

In this final paragraph, we’ll be covering the memory and OS aspects. Its memory region is composed of a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. A larger variant bags 128GB internal storage with the expansiveness of 1TB through a memory card. When you mix Android 9.0 Pie and Emotion UI 9 together, you’ve got the software of this phone.
