Huawei Y9 Prime launches on 1 August: Everything you need to know

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei on Tuesday announced the launch date of its upcoming smartphone, the Huawei Y9 Prime, putting all the rumours around the phone to rest. The phone will be launched in India on 1 August.

Amazon has created a landing page for the smartphone that allows interested buyers to be notified when the smartphone would be up for sale.

The Huawei Y9 Prime boasts of a 6.57-inch display that is interrupted by notches of any kind. It uses a pop up selfie camera mechanism to house the front facing camera. The camera has a 16MP sensor with AI capabilities.

The device is powered by Huawei’s in-house chipset, the HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC paired with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It is backed by a 4,000mAh battery.

At the back, the smartphone has a 16MP+8MP+2MP camera configuration that is AI-enabled. Huawei says the smartphone gathers more light and clicks pictures with better resolution and contrast due to the 6P lens sitting on top of the sensors.

Additionally, the device comes with a 3D portrait feature. Both the front and rear camera of the device can retouch your portraits to add lighting effects.

Huawei has, time and again, announced that all of its present and future handsets would offer timely Android updates. This announcement comes after US President Donald Trump placed the Chinese company into a trading blacklist.
