Huawei Y9s Announced | Huge Upgrade in Camera Over Y9 Prime
Though the dispute between Huawei and the US government is still going on, Huawei is in no mood to stop working and producing new devices. They are all over in the market in each segment, from Entry Level to Mid-range to Flagship devices. Though the latest Flagship Mate 30 Pro comes without Google Services, they are one of the best and powerful devices available in the current market. Huawei Y9 Series is the mid-range device from the company. First, we have Huawei Y9, then Huawei Y9 2019 then Huawei Y9 Prime and the latest one to be announced is Huawei Y9s. The current price of Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 in Nepal is 29,990 and the price of Huawei Y9s in Nepal is expected to be slightly higher than the previous one.
Huawei Y9s Overview
To be frank, this upgrade in Huawei Y9s over Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is noticeable in very few specs. Most of the specs are the same as the previous version; the same screen size, the same battery size, and the same processor.
The screen of this Huawei Y9s is clean and beautiful, its 6.59” HUAWEI Ultra FullView display without any notches or bezels. With 91% screen to body ratio, Huawei Y9s delivers an ultra-wide interface to watch videos or play games. This display supports 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution and has 391 PPI.
The back of this device comes with two charming colors that look beautiful when lights fall from different angles. It has a polished glass body with a 3D arc design.
Huawei Y9s is powered by an in-house Kirin 710F chipset. The octa-core SoC efficiently enhances the running speed and lowers the power consumption, claims the company. It comes in a single variant of a 6/128GB RAM/ROM variant. The storage can be expanded up to 512GB via Micro SD Card.
This phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which is capable of unlocking the device within 0.3 seconds.
The key upgrade in the device over the previous one can be found in its camera. As Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has 16MP primary sensor, we have 48MP AI Triple Rear Camera in this Huawei Y9s. The other camera sensor is an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor with 120-degree FOV and 2MP Depth Sensor.
On the front, we have the same 16MP Selfie shooter in the pop-up module with f/2.2 aperture. But the company promises it has upgraded AI Beauty Algorithm for taking better portraits and bringing clarity in images.
