Over the recent past, Huawei has released phones with very good specs and attractive price tags. The Chinese tech giant is keen to take back the market it once dominated from Transsion Holdings brands (Tecno, Itel & Infinix). Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is the next phone in line. It is expected in June 2019. This phone should not be confused with the Huawei Y9 2019.
The Y9 Prime 2019 is a solid upgrade of the Y9 2019. It has incredible specs that will make it compete effectively with smartphones from other popular brands that are within its price range. Its price is expected to be around KSh. 30,000. At that price point, this phone not only competes with phones from other brands, it also competes with other Huawei phones, like the P30 Lite.
Main highlights of the Y9 Prime 2019 include USB Type C connectivity, a pop-up selfie camera, and a triple lens rear camera. It comes with a 6.59 inches display with 1080p by 2340p resolution. It runs on Android v9.0 Pie out of the box and is powered by HiSilicon Kirin 710F processor. It is equipped with 4GB of RAM and comes with either 64GB or 128GB onboard storage space.
Like the other Y series phones, this phone is camera-centric. It is equipped with a triple lens camera on the rear with 16 MP lens + 8 MP lens + 2 MP lens. The front-facing shooter is 16 MP. It has a 4000mAh battery and is available in three colors: Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, and Emerald Green. This phone will directly compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy A50 and the Oppo F11.
