Another day, another Huawei story. The still-unannounced Huawei Y9 (2018) has surfaced online, suggesting a device much like the Huawei Nova 2i and Nova 2 Lite.
The renders show a near-full-screen device with two cameras on the front and two at the back. But unlike the Nova 2i’s rear-facing system, which it stacks vertically, the Y9 (2018) is shown to have a pair of cameras aligned in a horizontal position, similar to those of the Huawei Nova 2 Lite. The Y9 (2018) will also arrive with a fingerprint scanner mounted on the rear, which most users will find convenient.
Further, the Huawei Y9 (2018), per the listing on China’s TENAA website, will sport a 5.93-inch, full-resolution display. Its Kirin 659 processor runs Android 8.0 Oreo and is mated to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
The rear cameras are 16 and 2 megapixels. On the front, the 13-megapixel main selfie camera is provided depth information (for shots with background blur) by a secondary 2-megapixel sensor. A 3,900mAh or 4,000mAh battery is expected to power the device.
All things considered, the Huawei Y9 (2018) sounds like a cross between the Nova 2i and Nova 2 Lite but with a beefier battery. According to earlier reports, it will launch in Thailand on March 15. Given all the similarities with an existing Huawei model that will get updated to Android Oreo later this year, it’s unlikely that the Y9 (2018) will make the overseas trip to the Philippines at any point in the future.
