Huawei just released a new smartphone named Huawei Enjoy 9 which looks similar to Huawei Y9 2019 (also known as Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus in china). However, in terms of capabilities, the Enjoy 9 packs somewhat less features compared to Enjoy 9 Plus. It also ditched Huawei’s Kirin Chipset and went with a Snapdragon 450 chipset which is a pretty efficient and capable chipset for the budget segment. Let’s see what else the Enjoy 9 has up it’s sleeves.

Huawei Enjoy 9 Design And Display
Huawei Enjoy 9 Sports a 6.26-inch IPS display with 720p screen resolution, 269ppi and a 19:9 aspect ratio with a water drop notch up top to house the single front-facing camera. There is a little bit of chin download below which houses the Huawei name.
At the back of the device are two cameras lined up vertically with the LED flash just underneath. There is no fingerprint sensor here as the device lacks that. It weighs about 168 grams and measures 8.1 mm in thickness. Colours options available are black and Gradient Aurora – Blue, Red and Purple.
Huawei Enjoy 9 Camera Review
Huawei Enjoy 9 has one less camera than the Enjoy 9 Plus. It has just three in total; one at the front and two at the back. The one at the front is a single 8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, HDR and 1080p video recording capabilities but only at 30fps. The dual rear camera consist of the a 13MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture and PDAF and a secondary 2MP depth sensor camera with f/2.4 aperture. The rear camera also has an LED flash, HDR, Panorama and of course, can record 1080p videos at 30fps.

This is paired with an Adreno 506 GPU for gaming. Huawei Enjoy 9 comes in two configurations; a 3GB RAM variant with 32GB of internal storage and a 4GB RAM variant that comes with 64GB of internal storage.
Both configurations come with an option to expand the storage even further through the dedicated MicroSD card slot, up to 512GB. As usual, there is the Huawei’s own EMUI 8.2 which runs on the device out of the box, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
