Huawei Launches Y9 Prime; Features A Pop-Up Selfie Cam & 4000 mAh Battery

Chinese manufacturer Huawei has launched Y9 Prime 2019, a successor to 2018’s Y9 Prime. It is very much similar to the company’s recently unveiled Huawei P Smart Z. While both of them share the design language and the pop-up front camera, the Y9 Prime has a triple rear camera setup.

Huawei Y9 Prime’s official website has listed all the specifications. While no price confirmation was given, we can expect it to be priced at approximately ₹21,800 ($314). The phone will come in three colors – Midnight Black, Emerald Green, and Sapphire Blue. The design is Google Pixel-like with a two-tone back design.


The Huawei Y9 Prime has a 6.5 inches LCD full-HD+ Ultra FullView display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It runs on Android 9 Pie with Huawei’s latest EMUI 9.0. The Y9 Prime is powered by octa-core Kirin 710F processor, coupled with 4GB RAM, and an ARM Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. The base storage is 64GB while a 128GB variant is also available.

This year’s Y9 Prime features a triple camera module with different FOV’s – a 16MP primary sensor (f/1.8), an 8MP ultra wide-angle lens, and a 2MP sensor for depth-sensing (f/2.4).  The front camera is the highlight, which is a 16MP pop-up camera. The sample images on Y9’s websites are pretty impressive.

Other features include a rear fingerprint sensor, USB-Type C for fast charging, and a 4,000mAh battery to keep everything running.

Stay tuned for more coverage of Huawei’s Y9 Prime (2019).
