The Chinese smartphone titan HUAWEI has never shied away from equipping its iterations with all the possible number of cameras out there. Case in point is the triple-camera bearing HUAWEI P20 Pro and the HUAWEI nova 3i with four cameras. And as the HUAWEI Y9 (2019), the successor to last year's HUAWEI Y9 (2018) has finally unwrapped, the company shows no signs of stopping this trend.
The HUAWEI Y9 (2019) features a colossal 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Under the hood, the handset is powered by a premium mid-range chipset, HUAWEI's proprietary HiSilicon Kirin 710. The smartphone comes with 4GB/6GB RAM options and 64GB/128GB of internal storage options.
Down the line, the most defining feature of the HUAWEI Y9 (2019) is revealed: dual-camera setups right on the front and on the rear. On the front, the notch houses selfie cameras with 16MP + 2MP sensors. The device's rear packs 13MP + 2MP camera sensors with HDR and an LED flash. Accordingly, the 2MP sensor on both the front and back is equipped to collect depth data for portrait mode shots.
Dubbed as "the prodigy of the new generation," the HUAWEI Y9 (2019) comes with a design that accentuates such moniker. The device's flashy two-tone finish aside, the smartphone is also developed to attract gamers with its powered-up platform features.
So, what else does the HUAWEI Y9 (2019) provide? The smartphone also features a beefed up rear-mounted fingerprint reader which the company claims allows users to unlock their devices in a fraction of a second. A huge 4,000mAh battery is also thrown into the mix, while the latest Android 8.1 Oreo runs the show.
The pricing and availability of the device are still unknown.
