Huawei Y9s with 16MP pop-up camera, Kirin 710F launched in India

Huawei has just launched a new mid-range smartphone in India. Dubbed the Huawei Y9s, this smartphone keeps the basic design language and internal hardware of last year’s Huawei Y9 Prime, but brings along a camera refresh in the form of the 48MP primary camera to better stand against the competition.

The Huawei Y9s features a 6.59-inch IPS LTPS with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution, wrapped in a glass body with curved sides which Huawei calls it 3D arc design. Huawei has moved around a few things on the back so as not to repeat the exact look of the Huawei Y9 Prime. For example, all three cameras are now housed inside a vertical strip while the fingerprint scanner has been relocated to the right frame and doubles as the power button.

XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY

On the inside, the Huawei Y9s is powered by mid-range HiSilicon Kirin 710F octa-core chipset, featuring 4x ARM Cortex-A73 clocked at 2.2GHz frequency and 4x ARM Cortex-A53 efficiency cores running at 1.7GHz frequency, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 flash storage.

The quad-camera setup on this phone is comprised of a 48MP primary – a step up from the 16MP unit on the Y9 Prime – an 8MP wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view, and 2MP depth sensor. For selfie needs, the phone has a 16MP pop-up selfie shooter.

The Huawei Y9s is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that charges via USB-C port. The phone comes running EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9.0 Pie along with Google apps. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/A-GPS/GLONASS, and 4G LTE. The phone does come with Google Apps support, but on the flip side, it runs on EMUI 9.1 based on Android Pie.

Huawei Y9s: Pricing and Availability

The Huawei Y9s comes in two colors – Breathing Crystal and Midnight Black – and will be exclusively available from Amazon India starting May 19 for ₹19,990. There is an option to purchase the phone with a 9-month no-cost EMI, which will get you a ₹1,000 cashback too.
