Huawei Y9s has been launched as a global variant of Honor 9X. Huawei hasn’t made any announcement of the launch of the phone but did list it on the global site, which is, by the way, enough to convey its official existence. The listing reveals all the key details, including the design and specifications of the device.
Some of the key highlights of the design of the Huawei Y9s are side-mounted fingerprint scanner and pop-up selfie camera. So in appearance, the phone doesn’t look different from other existing Android phones. It has a triple rear cameras setup and a full-screen display, thanks to the pop-up selfie camera arrangement.
The Huawei Y9s is listed to run on Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.1. It features a 6.59-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) TFT LCD display. It is powered by Huawei Kirin 710F octa-core processor coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage option which can be expanded further using a microSD card. The triple rear cameras include a 48MP primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP tertiary lens with f/2.4 aperture. On the front, the device has a 16MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture.
The Huawei Y9s houses a 4,000mAH battery which is touted to last up to 40 hours of continuous calling, music playback for 80 hours and video playback for 9 hours.
The price tag of the Huawei Y9s is unknown but expect to hear soon when it goes available in some markets.
