Amazon had set up a teaser page for the Huawei Y9 2019. The page had a few details about the phone but no information on price or availability.
We have now learned that Huawei will be launching the phone in India January 7. The phone will be announced at an event in New Delhi. The company has sent out invites to the media for the same.
The Huawei Y9 2019 is a budget smartphone from Huawei. It has a 6.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2340×1080. It doesn’t have any of the fancy teardrop notches and instead a more traditional looking one but it justifies it to some extent by having a dual front camera.
The Y9 2019 is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 710 processor with 4/6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage, although it’s yet unknown which capacity variants will be available in India. The phone also supports the GPU Turbo feature by Huawei, which boosts performance in certain game titles.
The phone has a dual rear camera system with a 16MP f2.0 primary and 2MP f2.4 depth sensor. On the front is a 13MP f1.8 primary and 2MP f2.4 depth sensor. Both cameras support only up to 1080p video.
The Y9 2019 has a 4000mAh battery with no fast charging. The phone runs on EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1.
