On June 27, 2019, Huawei officially introduced to Vietnamese consumers its latest mid-range smartphone the Y9 Prime. This is considered an upgrade of the 2019 Y9 launched late last year with strong improvements in both performance and design.
Despite recent noises in the context of American tension – China, Huawei's representative still voiced claims that its products sold in the Vietnamese market still receive updates from Google. Evidence is that the Huawei Y9 Prime when sold has been preinstalled with EMUI 9 interface on Android 9 Pie operating system.
Mr. Cheng Jiangfei – General Manager of Huawei Vietnam said that Google continues to support the products sold by Huawei and wants consumers to continue to support the company as before on upcoming products.
Huawei Y9 Prime possesses a simple back cover with a color-split design rather than a recent gradient trend. This machine still uses the back fingerprint, not integrated into the screen.
The most recognizable upgrade point of Y9 Prime compared to its predecessor is the Full-view screen 6.59 inches with FullHD + resolution without "rabbit ears". Selfie camera has been used by Huawei to use "pull out" mechanism to turn it off whenever needed. According to Huawei, this mechanism can withstand up to 100,000 times of opening and closing and is able to automatically record when a dropped phone is detected to enhance protection.
The bottom of the screen is quite thick.
Huawei Y9 Prime's selfie camera with 16 MP resolution, f / 2.2 aperture integrates AI intelligence to recognize the new scene and skin processing mechanism to retain as much detail as possible. Besides, Huawei integrates Night Mode night feature from high-end product lines with this Y9 Prime.
Huawei Y9 Prime owns a 16 MP main camera with a large aperture of f / 1.8 that also integrates AI with 22 different themes. Huawei's 8 MP super wide-angle camera is introduced by using a new 6P lens system for shooting angles up to 120 degrees. Accompanied by a 2 MP depth sensor, there is an enhanced auxiliary effect for capturing fonts.
This machine uses a new Kirin 710F chip that provides 75% higher performance than the previous Kirin 659 generation. Besides, Y9 Prime owns 4GB Ram and 128GB ROM with battery capacity up to 4000mAh.
Huawei Y9 Prime is sold for VND 6,490,000 with two versions of Black and Mysterious Blue and Sapphire.
