The Huawei Y9 prime 2019 is the most recent offering by Chinese phone makers, Huawei, despite the ban by the US that has seen several rumours spring up in the past few months including a Huawei OS, the Hongmeng Os. Huawei Y9 Prime 2019, is the latest Y Series device, a line of smartphones that caters to the younger generation to realize their true potential. The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 packs premium features and innovations which include a new and improved display and a revolutionary auto pop-up front camera.
Here’s a quick look at what the Huawei Y9 has to offer.
The all new Ultra FullView Display
Designed for users who demand the most out of their screens, the younger generation, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 boasts an all new Ultra FullView Display which is not interrupted by any notches, creating a seamless viewing experience. Sized at a massive 6.59 inches with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 FHD+ and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, the display is 91% pure screen estate, allowing users to enjoy a display like never before. The display is also capable of authentic and rich colors with a wide color gamut of 85%. Whatever you need big screens for, being it playing video games, watching videos browsing social media or any other task that comes to mind, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 promises users an immersive viewing experience without any interruptions.
The back of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 boasts a design style that is divided in seemingly three parts. The part takes a one-third and houses the Triple camera and fingerprint sensor, while the bottom two-thirds has a minimalistic look with a darker hue. Something that reminds me of the design on the Google pixel smartphones. The bottom carries the Type C reversible USB connector, the headphone jack and the speaker grills. The sides rock the volume rocker and the power button.
Auto Pop-up Selfie Camera
While most phone makers still use the bezels and notches to house the front camera and various other sensors, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 uses a clever and innovative design to hide these sensors just like the Oppo f11. Seemingly invisible, the front camera is tucked away and will only appear when needed. Once the camera is turned on and selfie mode is selected, the front camera will pop-up automatically out of the top of the phone. Additionally, it also includes an intelligent protective feature that detects free falls and automatically retracts the lens as much as possible.
Sporting a 16MP lens and supported by Huawei’s powerful AI, the Auto Pop-up Selfie Camera is capable of identifying up to eight scenarios for accurate scene and object recognition. The upgraded AI backlight imaging technology also fixes lighting concerns retaining stunning clarity and colors for stunning selfies. Additionally, users can also enjoy stunning studio effects in their selfies including 3D Portrait Lighting.
On the back of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a 16MP + 8MP + 2MP triple-camera. Both the 16MP primary and 8MP secondary sensors feature a 6P (six-lens plastic array) design that reproduces minute details within an image and captures more photons. As a result, the phone empowers users to recreate scenes in their full complexity, with enhanced image clarity, contrast, and overall quality.
Battery, Software and Performance
Under the beautiful design, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is powered by an Ultra Large 4000 mAh battery for extended periods of intensive use. The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 also uses a Type-C port, which is smaller, faster and reversible. Additionally, you can still find the 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
Powered by the Kirin 710F chipset, the phone promises super smooth performance. The chipset is 30% more efficient than its predecessor and manages phone heating during complex resource allocation, saving battery life. Software wise, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 runs Android 9.0 pie with the Huawei skin EMUI 9.0, which learns and analyzes user behavior thereby enabling a more optimized user experience and also has a 12.9% higher performance. The system is further optimized by F2Fs 2.0 (Flash-Friendly File System) and EROFS (Extendable Read-Only File System), which provides better memory management, improving performance and speed. The Huawei Y9 prime 2019 comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB ROM and an Expanded Memory up to 512GB. Now you can store more and do more.
