Huawei has followed up its launch of the Y9 (2018) with a successor that is named Huawei Y9 (2019). Even though it’s not quite 2019 yet, and neither is it time for a refresh but the handset is official. The smartphone recently appeared at TENAA and has quad-cameras as its highlight. Prices of the handset are not known and sales are set to commence in mid-October. The same device will be launched as Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus in China.
As for the spec-sheet, the Huawei Y9 (2019) rocks a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ display with 2.5D curved glass and 2340 × 1080p resolution. While its predecessor did not feature a notch, the Y9 (2019) does come with one and has a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. The processor is another area of the upgrade as the handset has the new HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC paired with an ARM Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. A 4,000mAh battery powers Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 out-of-the-box. The handset has dual 4G VoLTE, NFC, USB Type-C and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
On the camera side of things, the front has a combo of a 16MP primary sensor and an ever-present 2MP depth sensor. The rear has a 13MP shooter working in tandem with a 2MP depth sensor to provide good bokeh effects.
