Design and Display

Huawei Y9a

The look and feel of the Huawei Y9a are definitely captivating. It comes in an enchanting 3D arc design with nano-textured surface and comfortable grip.

It features 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio and 397 PPI density. Even the selfie camera is hidden away from the phone’s display, so you have a much wider view to watch videos, read the news, and even play mobile games.

Hardware and Software

Powering the Y9A is MediaTek Helio G80 chipset and is paired with an 8GB RAM. The chipset features an Octa-core 2.0GHz processor and Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. Store your favourite photos and videos on the phone’s 128GB storage. Running the software is Google’s Android 10 OS with EMUI 10.1 UI which allows you to take a screenshot by just knocking on the phone’s screen twice. It’s no longer news that Huawei phones do not support Google Play Store and Services. The company is replacing that with the “AppGallery” – a boutique store of apps to search, download, manage and share your favourite mobile apps. Alongside the Huawei’s AppGallery is the “Petal Search” – a gateway to download millions of apps easily.

The rear module of the Huawei Y9A is equipped with a 64MP f/1.8 main lens with PDAF, an 8MP f/2.4 ultrawide lens with 120° FoV, a 2MP f/2.4 macro lens and a 2MP f/2.4 depth lens. The camera setup is backed by an advanced AI technology, making it possible for it to read scenes and cooperate seamlessly as you take photos whether in sunlight or dark environment.

Notable features of the camera is a Super Night Shot thanks to a 51200 ISO and noise reduction algorithm and an EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) technology to help you record stable handheld videos when the camera shakes. For selfies, the phone uses the common pop-up mechanism to bring out a 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle selfie camera with HDR.

The Huawei Y9a is built with long battery life and quick charging speed. It features a 4,200 mAh capacity with AI power-saving technology and supports 40W Huawei SuperCharge. You can restore up to 70% battery life with just 30 minutes of charging.
