Huawei Y9 (2019) Images, Specifications Leak; Reveals Kirin 710 SoC, 3900mAh Battery, 4 Cameras

The as-yet unannounced Huawei Y9 (2019) succeeds last year's model of the same name. However, it packs 4 cameras, two on either side and other upgraded features


The Huawei Y9 2019 Edition has now started to appear on regular basis. The latest report about the Huawei smartphone includes images and other critical details. The specifications suggest Huawei is readying a capable mid-range Android smartphone with some interesting features, especially in the imaging department.

Incidentally, MSP Gear was one of the first platforms to spot the report about a Huawei smartphone codenamed JKM-AL00. Looking at the specifications and details mentioned on the TENNA listing, we had confidently predicted the device could be the 2019 Edition of the Huawei Y9. The new report corroborates the information. Thereafter, another TENNA listing with a slightly different name appeared. The listing mentioned the model number JKM-AL00a. This confirmed the suspicions that Huawei is indeed developing a new variant of the Huawei Y9 (2019). The report also included images of the device, but the new leak reveals the several colour options in which the Huawei Y9 (2019) will launch.

Huawei Y9 (2019): Leaked Specifications and Features

According to the latest leak, the Huawei Y9 2019 Edition is essentially an upgraded version of previous year’s model of the same name. However, along with enhanced specifications, the new Y9 also has a few advanced features that weren’t present in the 2018 edition of Y9. The accompanying images indicate the several enhancements in the aesthetics of the Huawei Y9 (2019).

The smartphone will have a large 6.5-inch sized display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Also, it will have a small notch that surprisingly houses two instead of the single front-facing camera. The last year’s model had a 5.93-inch display.

The powerful mid-range octa-core HiSIlicon Kirin 710 processor clocked at 2.2GHz will power the Huawei smartphone. The Huawei Y9 (2019) will be available in two configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. According to the TENNA listing, the smartphone will also have a provision to insert a micro-SD card thereby boosting storage by up to 400GB.

The most notable improvement that is increasingly becoming an industry-trend is the inclusion of 4 cameras. However, instead of the triple-camera setup seen on the Samsung Galaxy A7, the Huawei Y9 (2019) will have large camera sensors, accompanied by two smaller sensors for depth information on either side. The rear camera setup includes 20MP main sensor + 2MP for depth information. The front-facing dual camera setup includes a 16MP main sensor with 2MP for depth information.

The Huawei Y9 (2019) will have a large 3,900mAh capacity battery. Also, the leak also mentions the battery will support 10W high-speed charging. Connectivity options include USB Type-C connector, along with several other mainstream standards of WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G VoLTE, GPS, etc.

Huawei Y9 (2019): Expected Launch, Price

The Huawei Y9 (2019) could launch in China first, before heading to other international markets. Also, previous reports indicated Huawei may launch the smartphone in European markets as well. Given the accelerated pace of the leaks, we believe Huawei could be in the final stages of readying the smartphone for launch. The smartphone will run EMUI 8.1, and will launch in teal, black and gradient blue colour options. Interestingly, some rumours indicate the smartphone may also arrive in pink and purple colours.

The Huawei Y9 (2019) is the successor to the 2018 edition of the same name. It is unclear why Huawei is retaining the same name for two different models launching in successive years. However, the company appears to have made all the relevant upgrades.

According to another tweet, the Huawei Y9 (2019) will start at USD 250 for the 4GB/64GB variant. This translates to Rs. 18,000. Needless to mention, this appears to be an amazing price for such a device. We at MSP Gear will certainly update our readers about any new information about the Huawei smartphone.
