Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 review, price, specs, and video by Revu Philippines

Watch: Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is contender for best pop-up camera phone

In Phonesby Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is currently one of most popular midrange devices in the Philippines. Which is not surprising at all considering it’s the country’s most affordable smartphone with a pop-up camera and a full-screen design.

Locally, the Y9 Prime 2019 is priced at P12,990 off contract, or roughly $254 in United States currency. It’s a lot less expensive than the OPPO F11 Pro and Vivo V15 Pro, though to be fair to both handsets, they also come with better specs in some areas.

However, that’s not to say Huawei’s latest release will leave you wanting for more in the specs department. It’s actually a pretty good all-around phone that feels great to use and looks even better with its dual-tone metallic paint job. It uses an efficient processor that can handle graphically demanding games as well.

The triple-lens camera system with a wide-angle lens is good for almost any scenario, too. Meanwhile, the elevating 16-megapixel camera can take clear, natural-looking selfies.

But don’t let us do all the talking — check out this video to see the phone in action. 

Now available in the Philippines, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 can be purchased in Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, and Midnight Black colors nationwide.
