Huawei Y9 (2019) specs leaked on TENAA
As Huawei is expected to exceed Apple’s annual device sale figures within the next 12 months, the Chinese company is constantly updating its entry-level, mid-range and high-end offerings. Huawei’s Youth series usually includes entry-level models, but, for 2019, Huawei plans to expand the series with some mid-range handhelds. First 2019 model from the Youth series to get leaked specs on TENAA is the Y9.
Even though the Y9 is said to integrate a Snapdragon 710 SoC, Huawei will most likely try to keep prices within the range of previous Youth models. The new Snapdragon 710 octa-core running at 2.2 GHz is coupled with either 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB storage or 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Additionally, storage space can be increased via the microSD slot.
While the premium high-end devices are now getting 7-inch displays, the mid-range models are now moving towards 6.5-inch screens. The Y9 is among the first Huawei mid-rangers to get a 6.5-inch screen with HD+ resolution, however, it will feature a notch that houses a 16 MP selfie. The back of the phone comes with a dual camera setup (20 MP + 2 MP) and a circular fingerprint reader.
The increased display demands a heftier 3,900 mAh battery, and TENAA informs that the device should run Android 8.1. With these specs approved by TENAA, Huawei should officially announce the Y9 very soon.
