We’re seeing quite a number of phones nowadays with full screen displays and pop-up cameras. Huawei is joining the bandwagon by launching the new Huawei Y9 2019 Prime! It is the first smartphone from Huawei to feature an Ultra Full-View Display and a pop-up camera for selfie photos.
Huawei Y9 2019 Prime represents a break from the conventional smartphone design. It abandons any form of notch, slider or a hole. The screen is simply a smooth and unobstructed glass surface, taking up 91% of the front surface. The receiver earpiece has been moved to the top of the central frame, and the ambient light sensor is located at the bottom of the screen.
The Huawei Y9 2019 Prime comes equipped with a Kirin 710F processor which delivers terrific performance while consuming less power. Storage is 128GB with the memory at 4GB. Battery capacity remains at 4,000 mAh.
Cameras were upgraded to a Triple-Camera system composed of 16 Megapixels, 8 Megapixels and 2 Megapixels. The 16MP main camera and 8MP secondary camera utilize a 6P (six-lens plastic array) design, which helps capture crystal-clear images with a sterling level of the detail and powerful light intake, resulting in improved resolution and contrasts.
The F/1.8 aperture on the 16MP camera takes in 50% more light than the F/2.2 aperture is more commonly seen, with low noise, and fast focusing. Meanwhile, the 8MP sensor offers one of the most impressive feats little found among the budget phones, an ultra-wide-angle camera that allows for 120° wide-angle shots of vast landscapes or breathtaking skylines.
On the other hand, the 2MP sensor coordinates with the primary camera to generate the depth of field in the photo, enabling SLR-quality images on a palm-sized budget handset. Tools such as Night mode, and 480 FPS super slow-motion videos, bring a range of professional features within reach.
The Y9 2019 Prime’s new auto pop-up camera is automatically activated when the user switches to the front camera. The pop-up camera is also designed with an intelligent protection mechanism that detects free falls and retract the lens. When the front camera is activated, it would automatically emerge and hover over the screen, like a submarine periscope appearing from under the surface. This elegant futuristic design allows the phone to realize a bezel-less and notch-less display, providing a higher screen-to-body ratio.
The Huawei Y9 2019 Prime retails at P12,990 and comes with three colors: Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green and will be available at Huawei Experience Stores and partner retailers nationwide. Pre-order starts on July 5 – July 12 and consumers who pre-order will get a premium Bluetooth speaker worth P1,790.
Big consumer launches for Y9 2019 Prime will be held from 13 July to 14 July in four SM malls, SM City Marilao, SM City Cebu, SM Megamall and SM City Sta. Rosa to give consumers more fun experiences and additional benefits they can check on spot.
