More than a week ago, we at Revü spotted the Huawei Y9 2019 on Lazada Philippines. At the time, the since-deleted listing was for a version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage — a model that’s non-existent. Today, a new listing is up on the ecommerce site, and it’s for the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.

(Update, November 14: Our review is up! Do read Huawei Y9 2019 review: A heavyweight with a lightweight price.)

Even better, you can already buy the smartphone — in Midnight Black or Sapphire Blue — for the same aggressive price of P12,990 (roughly $245) we reported earlier. Every purchase comes with a free speaker worth P1,490 ($28). This should make the Y9 2019 something worth considering given its specs, especially its big display and battery. Think 6.5-inch notched screen and 4,000mAh battery.

Just like the P14,990 ($282) Huawei Nova 3i, this year’s Y9 comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 710 chip, which has a dedicated neural-processing unit or NPU for artificial intelligence-related functions. It also boasts four AI cameras, albeit with lower megapixel counts — 16 and 2 megapixels on the back and 13 and 2 megapixels for selfies. The EMUI 8.2 version it’s running is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
