Huawei has officially announced the latest mid-range device with brand name of Huawei Y9 2019 in its home market that indicates to be the successor of the Huawei Y9 2018 that was announced early this year.
Huawei Y9 2019 – Features
The Huawei Y9 2019 features a 6.2-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel on the front having 2340 x 1080 pixels’ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a .5D curved glass on top. The rear of the phone houses vertically aligned dual cameras alongside a fingerprint scanner for added security, which the company claims can unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds.
The smartphone gets powered by company’s own mid-range Kirin 710 octa-core 12nm processor that was launched a couple of months ago. It comes in two variants based on the RAM/ROM configuration; 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. Luckily, both models have a microSD card slot that allows users to further expand the storage capacity up to 400GB.
Coming to the optics, the new device follows the footprints of its predecessor by offering dual camera setup on either sides. The rear of the smartphone houses a 16MP primary lens and a 2MP secondary one along with an LED flash, stacked vertically in the top-left corner. Whereas, the front of the device features a 13-MP primary sensor and a 2-MP secondary one for selfie shooting.
The Huawei Y9 2019 is a dual SIM supported handset that runs Android 8.1 Oreo under the hood with Huawei’s proprietary EMUI 8.2 skin on top. The device gets fuelled by a 4000mAh battery that supports fast charging technology.

As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Y9 2019 is announced for China’s local market in three color options to choose from Midnight Black, Blue Swarovski, and Aurora Purple. While the phone is expected to go on sale in China later this month, the company has not yet announced the pricing information.
