Huawei Y9s 2019 gets listed on official website, coming this month to Pakistan

Huawei is gearing up to refresh last year’s Huawei Y9 2019 with an ‘s’ moniker which is expected to debut soon in Pakistan, albeit with a higher price tag. Huawei has just shared the specification details for the Huawei Y9s 2019 on its global Website, along with a few official renders. In fact, the company has already started taking pre-orders in the Middle east. Here’s everything you need to know.

Huawei Y9s will be borrowing its impressive 6.59-inch FHD+ notch and punch-hole-free display, or as Huawei likes to call it, ‘Ultra FullView Display’ from its predecessor, along with the popup module that housed the selfie shooter.

The fingerprint reader has been placed on the side, next to the volume rocker, and it doubles as the power button. The back-panel design is familiar yet clean, with only a triple-camera setup on the top left corner. It’ll be offered in a simpler Midnight Black finish and a flashier pink-to-blue gradient hue – Breathing Crystal.

One of the highlights of this revamped Y9S variant would arguably be the optics hardware. Where the primary rear-camera maxed out at a mere 16-megapixel on the Y9 (2019), the new upgraded optics package brings a 48-megapixel primary unit, accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultrawide angle shooter and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Housed inside the popup module is a 16-megapixel front-facing selfie camera with an improved f/2.2 aperture.

Under the hood, you’re looking at a Kirin 710F chipset rounded off by up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (that can be expanded up to 512 GB thanks to microSD card support). This hardware will be powered by a 4,000 mAh battery with support for up to 10W fast-charging. 

Both the chipset and the onboard storage on the upcoming Huawei are carried over from Y9 but the Y9s will be arriving with a beefier RAM – swapping out 4 GB of memory for a 6 GB configuration.

The OS, however, remains the same. You’re looking at an almost identical EMUI 9.0-layered Android Pie (9.0). Y9s will reach Pakistan by the end of November while the expected Huawei price could range anywhere from 40,000 to 45,000 Pakistani rupees. Are these camera and performance improvements worth shelling out a few extra bucks? We’ll leave that up to our readers to decide.
