Huawei Y9 2019 With Powerful Kirin 710 Chipset Paired With AI Power 7.0 and GPU Turbo
One of the highlights on the Huawei Y9 2019 is that it is powered by a powerful chipset, the Kirin 710. The brand claims that the Kirin 710 is way better than the previous generation chipset in the lineup as its single-core performance has improved by 75% while the multi-core performance has 68% enhancement. Based on the 12nm manufacturing process, the Kirin 710 SoC reduces the power consumption by 30%, which also results in efficient overall working without taking a toll on the battery life. Additionally, the chipset is paired with GPU Turbo technology that delivers efficient functionality with 1.3x better GPU performance and enhancing the gaming experience for the user.
Onboard, we get 4GB of RAM that is enough to work with the sophisticated SoC and GPU technologies on the phone. Storage front is handled by 64GB of internal storage that can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. The Huawei Y9 2019 features a dedicated microSD card slot.
Power of Four Cameras On The Huawei Y9 2019
With four cameras, we mean that the Huawei Y9 2019 packs dual cameras on both front and rear sides, resulting in a combined package of four cameras. On the rear, the phone packs a 13MP+2MP dual camera setup with f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures, respectively. The configuration tends to essential details, and with the help of AI-backed technology, it can recognize over 500 scene types classified into 22 categories in real-time.
The rear camera is also geared with AI-backed hand-held night mode that offers stabilization for shots and offers up to 50% more light in low-light surroundings. It applies up to 6-second long exposure for capturing intrinsic details and minimizing noise in low-light surroundings.
On the front, the Huawei Y9 2019 features 16MP+2MP dual cameras that are assisted by AI technology including 3D lighting effects enhancing portrait shots by applying different types of light effects such as soft lighting, stage lighting, butterfly lighting and more. The front camera also gets beauty algorithm that can beautify selfies into studio-quality portrait shots.

Huawei Y9 (2019): How Does It Compare With Other Mid-Range Smartphones?
Boasting a price tag of Rs 15,990, the Huawei Y9 (2019) competes directly with the likes of the Xiaomi Mi A2 (Review), Motorola Moto One Power (Review), and the Nokia 6.1 Plus (Review). Putting the Huawei Y9 (2019) and the Motorola Moto One Power side by side, the Y9 (2019) lacks many features that One Power offers, including 4K video recording, USB Type-C port, front-facing LED flash, and splash resistance. The 4000mAh battery on the Y9 is also significantly smaller in comparison to the Moto One Power’s 5000mAh unit. Furthermore, I highly doubt that the Y9 (2019) will receive the OS updates as fast as that on the Moto One Power.
The Huawei Y9 (2019), however, is a good alternative to the Nokia 6.1 Plus. Though the Y9 (2019) doesn’t offer 4K video recording, high-resolution depth sensor, or even the USB Type-C port as the Nokia 6.1 Plus, it makes up for that with its large 4000mAh battery and a massive 6.5-inch display. Comparing the Y9 (2019) with the Mi A2 is a whole different story though. The Y9 (2019) may have a large battery, and a 3.5mm audio jack that the Mi A2 doesn’t, but the Y9 (2019) loses to the Mi A2 in every other aspect. The Mi A2 hasvastly better camera hardware, a more powerful processor, 4K video recording, and it will also get faster Android OS updates.
