Huawei Y9: Design
We’ll be taking a look at the Huawei Y9 in its blue color model. This has an attractive design that is pleasing to the eye. The smartphone has the following dimensions of 15.72 x 7.53 x 0.79 cm / 6.19 x 2.96 x 0.31 inches, thanks to this it will give us a comfortable grip. These dimensions place it as one of the thinnest Smartphones in the market, without forgetting that it only weighs 170 grams, so it is a light and comfortable device. The loudspeaker and some sensors are located in the upper part, next to the camera.
Like other models of the brand, it features a metal finish, material that gives durability, strength and premium sensation. On the back, you can see the two rear cameras. Also, the fingerprint reader and the Huawei logo are displayed below.
Huawei Y9: Screen
The screen has improved considerably compared to previous models. It is an IPS LCD screen of 5.92 inches, which features a 1080p FHD quality. Its frames are reduced with smooth curves and its aspect ratio is 18:9. In this way, its screen displays a resolution of 2160 × 1080 pixels.
Huawei Y9: Cameras
The Huawei Y9 surprises us with the incorporation of 4 cameras. Two on the front and two on the rear. This feature is surely the one that catches the most attention of this smartphone, but perhaps the most curious thing is that the front camera is more powerful than the others. The two front sensors are 16 and 2 megapixels respectively. This allows for a better Bokeh effect. The cameras do not lack beauty modes, facial recognition, panning or autofocus.
As for the two rear cameras, one sensor has 13 megapixels and the other 2 megapixels. However, good lighting is necessary to guarantee the optimum quality of the image. That is, there should not be much light between the object and the background.
Huawei Y9: Software
The Huawei Y9 works with EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0. The main characteristic of this operating system is the use of Artificial Intelligence. Aspects like Vision Engine, in charge of granting a better photographic experience; Performance Engine, which will improve the performance; Energy Engine, a program that controls the behavior of the battery; Experience Engine which is in charge of improving the interface, giving suggestions to users; and of course 3rd Parties App Engine that allows the applications of any developer to use the power of the smartphone’s NPU.
Huawei Y9: Hardware, Performance and storage
It has a powerful eight-core processor: the Kirin 659 with a Mali-T830 GPU. The latter is ideal for running mid-level 3D games without inconvenience. Likewise, it successfully executes common applications such as Whatsapp or Facebook. However, it reduces its speed a bit when running background applications. As for memory, it has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. However, it allows an expansion of the memory up to 256 GB by means of a MicroSD card.
Huawei Y9: Connections and functions
The phone, in its lower part, has a micro USB port, headphone jack, and speaker. Among the wireless connections, it has Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11 b / g / n; as well as GPS / AGPS / Glonass. The most noticeable drawback in this section is the lack of USB port type C. It uses 2G, 3G and 4G technologies. The Huawei Y9 card slot is a Dual Nano SIM. It has no infrared but instead has an accelerometer, gravity sensor, compass, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and fingerprint reader.
Huawei Y9: Battery
This device has a very good battery capacity, this being 4000 mAh unit. However, charging speed is a bit slow, with 36 mAh per minute, remember that this is a mid-range cell phone and this power is equivalent to 2 days of battery life.
