At an event held today in Delhi, Huawei has officially launched the Y9 in India. Huawei is exclusively partnering with Amazon to sell the Y9 and is bundling a complimentary Boat Rockerz Sports Bluetooth wireless headset to each buyer.
The Huawei Y9 sports a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution, coming in at a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. There’s a notch at the top, which accommodates the earpiece and the dual front-facing camera sensors, and a beautiful 3D arc design, that makes it ergonomic to hold and easy to use. Under the hood, the device is powered by a 2.2GHz Kirin 710 (12nm) chipset, with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (expandable using a microSD card) variants to choose from. The device has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a whopping 4000mAh battery to power it all.
In the camera department, the Huawei Y9 comes with four camera sensors in total – a dual (13MP + 2MP) sensor with f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture respectively on the front, and a dual (16MP + 2MP) sensor with f/2.0 and f/2.4 aperture respectively on the rear. Both the cameras are AI-powered cameras and come with up to 500 scene recognition modes.
Huawei claims the device to be the perfect companion for gaming, with a turbo-charged performance promising to deliver immersive and seamless gaming experience, and Histen 5.0 that simulates surround sound and assists in enhancing the bass frequencies.
