Display and Design

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 smartphone was launched on 13th May 2019. The phone comes with a 6.59-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080x2340 pixels at a pixel density of 391 pixels per inch (ppi) and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 features a glass-sandwich body that’s devoid of any notch or bezels up front. The back panel of the handset has a dual-tone finish beneath the polycarbonate glass, with the bottom half featuring silk texture design that shimmers under the light. While the glossy finish adds a premium look, it also means that the device is quite slippery and catches fingerprints and smudges rather easily. Thankfully, Huawei ships a TPU protective case with the phone.

It comes with 4GB of RAM.Software-wise, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes running Android 9 Pie garnished with the vendor’s custom skin EMUI 9.0 out of the box.

High Quality Camera

Coming to the cameras, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 packs a 16-megapixel pop-up selfie snapper that slowly (or rather too slowly) rises from the top accompanied by an electronic whirring.
