Huawei is back with another mid-range competitor, new Huawei Y9s. Taking the Y9 Prime 2019 recipe one step further, this latest edition carries a similar exterior but with improved internals and various other refinements. Most intriguing change is quite possibly the addition of the new 48MP primary camera. Further, for the front, it features an immersive 6.59-inch display along with a pop-up camera.
Internally, the phone utilizes HiSilicon’s 710F processor which is then coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. For the software, it features EMUI 9.1 which is disappointing as it is based on the older Android Pie revision. Anyways, to commemorate the launch, Huawei hosted a unique launch event in Lahore which included a visit to Lahore’s historical sites. Read all about the launch event right below!
Building up on the success of HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019, the HUAWEI Y9s offers a truly power packed experience and can be pre-ordered from Saturday, 30 November, 2019
