One of Huawei’s impressive mid-range smartphones in the market right now.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 was released in the middle week of June 2019. This mid-range phone has marked an excellent review in different countries around the world. The attractive design, a sizeable display, and pop-up front camera mechanisms make this smartphone in demand with the consumers.
Aside from those features, it’s undeniable that Huawei has been excellent in branding themselves as one of the best mid-range to premium smartphones now, especially their camera features. This also made them be known among their competitors, such as Apple and Samsung.
Now, we will look further into Huawei’s Y9 Prime 2019 and decide whether this mid-range smartphone can be at par with its competitors.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019‘s Display and Design
The Y9 has a remarkable outer design, for it may have a plastic-coated back; it receives a vibrant reflective coating. And once a light falls at the coated back, it produces glitter effects. Huawei offers two colors for the Y9, Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green.
When it comes to its physical features, the Y9 only measures 8.8mm at its thickest point and weighs around 196.8g. It instills a feeling of comfortability to users while using it in one hand, for its gently curved back offers a firm grip.
Huawei securely attached a 6.59-inch Full HD+ display and uses an IPS panel with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio on the Y9. It has IPS screen type, LTPS (Low-Temperature Polysilicon), and gives a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The pixel density is 282 PPI (pixels per inch). However, it doesn’t have that Gorilla glass protection, unlike its competitors.
The Huawei Y9 Prime has three cameras on the back, comprising a primary 16MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. And it also has a 16MP front camera hidden inside its pop-up mechanism on the top edge of the phone.
The Kirin 710F chipset powers Huawei Y9 Prime with an octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.2GHz and Mali-G51 MP4 as the graphics chip. This comes along with a 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The company managed to run the Y9 with Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9 and comes with GPU Turbo 3.0 for the gaming performance on the phone. Its speakers are powerful as Dolby Atmos power them.
The Y9 Prime has a 4,000mAh battery but sadly does not support fast charging.
In checking the Huawei Y9 Prime, we can say that the minimal bezel display and decent performance are impressive and worth every penny for a mid-range phone. Y9’s functionality and capabilities, high battery, a capable camera, and remarkable features – all for $399, it’s hard to let it past.
