Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Cameras
The motorized pop-up camera has a resolution of 16 Megapixels and results in a notch-less FullView display. It automatically pops-up when taking a selfie and retracts when the camera app is closed.
Meanwhile, the triple rear camera array is composed of a 16 Megapixel main camera, 8 Megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor for bokeh effect. Of course, it has AI features for automatically enhancing images based on the scene.
Display, Memory, and Chipset
The phone’s display is 6.59 inches with a Full HD+ resolution or 1080 x 2340 pixels.
A HiSilicon Kirin 710F chipset powers the device with a 2.2GHz octa-core CPU, Mali-G51 graphics processor and 4GB of RAM. There’s also 128GB of built-in storage, Android 9 Pie operating system, and EMUI 9 software out of the box.
Battery and Security
The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has a large 4,000 mAh battery but the charging speed of the bundled charger is 5V/2A only. It uses a USB Type-C port though.
For security, the device has a fingerprint sensor at the back while Face Recognition is disabled perhaps to reduce strain on the pop-up mechanism.
