Huawei has gone on to introduce a new mid-range smartphone in Thailand today, named the Y9 (2018). The Huawei Y9 shares a lot in common with the Mate 10 Lite launched back in October 2017 but features a redesigned package.
The Huawei Y9 (2018) comes with a 5.93-inch FHD+ LCD IPS display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. According to a report by GSMArena, the phone features a Kirin 659 SoC inside, a chipset we saw in the Honor 9 Lite. The Y9 (2018) also gets 3 GB of RAM and onboard storage of 32 GB which is further expandable via microSD.
As for the camera, the Y9 (2018) smartphone sports a setup similar to the Mate 10 Lite where we see a 16 MP primary camera along with a 2 MP secondary camera on the back, for better depth sensing. On the front, we get a 13 MP selfie shooter which is also assisted by a secondary 2 MP camera.
The Huawei Y9 (2018) comes with Android Oreo out of the box with Huawei's EMUI 8.0 and also houses a big 4,000 mAh battery.
The smartphone will be available in Thailand in three colours — black, blue and gold, but pricing details are yet to be unveiled.
We also do not know yet whether Huawei intends to release the Y9 (2018) in other markets.
