The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus (also known as the Huawei Y9 2019) was introduced in China two months ago, alongside the Enjoy Max. Previously, the device was available in only 4GB RAM variants. Now, a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant has been announced in the country. Huawei posted about the variant model through its official handle today, also letting consumers know that the device is available to register from e-retailers such as JD.com.
The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus (Huawei Y9 2019) is a mid-range offering from the company that comes a month after the launch of the Honor 8X in India. Key highlights of the smartphone include a premium glossy finish build, a new and powerful Kirin 710 SoC, a big 6.5-inch notched display and a 4000mAh battery.
Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus Specs, Features
The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus has a beautiful glass-and-metal design which almost makes it look like a flagship. It also has rounded edges and corners for a great in-hand feel. The display is a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with Full-HD+ resolution (2340×1080 pixels). The panel is protected by the TUV Rheinland certified coating that safeguards user’s eyes from blue rays created by the display.
Under the hood, the Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus rocks a Kirin 710 processor with 4GB of RAM. Now, there’s also a 6GB model that we just mentioned above. The Enjoy 9 Plus also sports a microSD card slot for additional storage (if that is what the user wants). The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus is a quad-camera device. At the back, the Enjoy 9 Plus has a combo of 16MP+2MP dual-camera setup in which the primary lens has f/2.0 aperture and phase-detection autofocus, while the second lens has f/2.4 aperture. It can record 1080p videos as well. On the front side, there’s a 13MP sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor. Even the front-facing camera can record 1080p videos.
In terms of connectivity, the Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus comes packed with features like dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB 2.0 port and GPS. Needless to say, it also has a fingerprint reader at the rear. On the software side of things, the pocket-friendly phablet runs Android 8.1 Oreo overlaid with EMUI 8.2. The package is powered by an adequate 4000mAh battery (with 10W charging) and also boasts Histen 5.0 audio technology by Huawei.
Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus (6GB +128GB) Price and Availability
The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus 6GB + 128GB variant will cost CNY 1,999 (approximately, INR 20,392) and is now open for reservations on JD.com. Sales will start from the 7th of December 2018. Huawei teased the new variant with the Aurora Purple gradient color so it seems the 6GB RAM version will be available only in that shade. However, the Enjoy 9 Plus has other versions—4GB RAM + 64GB storage—that costs CNY 1,499 Yuan (approximately, INR 15,292) and the 4GB + 128GB variant that costs CNY 1,499 (approximately, INR 15,292). The handset has four eye-catching shades to choose from: Aurora Purple, Magic Night Black, Sakura Pink, Sapphire Blue.
It is worth noting that the Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus is a close relative of the Honor 8X with very slight modifications such as the dual-camera at the front. The Honor 8X has a single front camera while the Enjoy 9 Plus has an additional 2MP depth sensor. Similarly, the Huawei Enjoy Max, which was launched alongside the Enjoy 9 Plus, is also a rebranded Honor 8X Max with a behemoth 7.12-inch screen. The Enjoy Max is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and a 5000mAh battery. The Huawei Enjoy Max is only available in two variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant that costs CNY 1,699 (approximately, INR 17,332) and the 4GB RAM + 128GB storage variant that costs CNY 1,999 (approximately, INR 20,392). It comes in three colour shades: Amber Brown, Magic Night Black, and Sky White.
