Huawei has officially released its latest smartphone in its home market – Huawei Y9 2019. As the name suggests, the smartphone is the successor of Huawei Y9 (2018) announced last year.
Huawei Y9 2019 will offer three colour options – midnight black, blue Swarovski and Aurora Violet. Although the phone is expected to be available for sale in China later this month, the company has not yet announced pricing information.
The phone features a 6.2-inch full HD+ display (2340 x 1080 pixels) and a 2.5D curved glass on the top with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It uses the company’s own mid-range Kirin 710 eight-core 12nm processor, launched a few months ago.
It has two variants based on memory configuration. The 4GB RAM model contains 64GB of internal storage, while the 6GB RAM model contains 128GB of internal storage. Both models have a microSD card slot that allows users to further expand their storage capacity up to 400GB.
Coming to the optical system, the back has a 16-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel auxiliary camera, as well as an LED flash stacked vertically in the upper left corner. There are also dual camera settings on the front, with a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel auxiliary sensor.
With a rear fingerprint sensor for added security, the company claims to be able to unlock the phone within 0.3 seconds. Connection options for the device include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz), Bluetooth v5 and GPS / GLONASS.
