Huawei has launched a new phone called Huawei Y9a in China. The phone appears to be a slightly tweaked version of the Enjoy 20 Plus that the company launched last week.
The Huawei Y9a features a full-screen design where there is no notch, punch hole, or any cutout to hold the selfie camera. It rather holds a pop-up selfie camera module. The back of the phone houses a quad rear camera setup that sits inside a circular module, just like the Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus.
The phone further features a 6.63-inch FHD+ (200x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD panel with a 92% screen-to-body ratio. It is also powered by MediaTek Helio G80 processor and coupled with 6GB/8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 expandable storage via proprietary NM SD card.
Huawei Y9a includes a 64MP primary snapper paired with an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide unit, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro shooter. On the other hand, the Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus came with triple camera sensors, where 48MP is the primary shooter, with 8MP and 2MP cameras. The pop-up selfie camera equips the same 16MP. It runs EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 with Huawei Mobile Services.
The connectivity options include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C. The Huawei Y9a is also fueled with 4,200 and supports 40W fast charging just like the Enjoy 20 Plus phone. But the Huawei Y9a will support 22.5W fast charging in regions other than the Middle East, Africa, and some countries in the Middle East.
The Huawei 9a will be available in Space Silver, Sakura Pink, and Midnight Black. The pricing details are not out yet.
