This midrange handset from Huawei has a large 6.59-inch FHD+ display with 2340×1080 pixel resolution. It also has an impressive 91% screen-to-body ratio all thanks to its notchless display.
In terms of performance, the smartphone runs on Huawei’s own Kirin 710F and uses Android 9 based EMUI 9.1 for its operating system. It is available in 6GB RAM+128GB ROM configuration with its external memory upgradable up to 512GB through a micro SD card.
Moreover, the Huawei Y9s boasts a triple camera setup. Its main camera is a 48-megapixel shooter with f/1.8 aperture. The other cameras include an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and 2-megapixel camera for depth of field. Meanwhile, the selfie camera uses a pop-up mechanism with a 16-megapixel lens.
