Check out our quick Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 review below!

Top Tier Design

While you aren’t going to find machined aluminium materials or other space-age construction components in this mid-tier option, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 still has clean lines and good looks. It is still one of the most attractive mid-range Android devices available right now.

The display is a Full HD Plus free of bezels and notches design that measures in at 6.59 inches diagonally, complete with IPS panel technology. It’s one of the best-looking mid-range Android smartphone screens you’ll find anywhere. The incredible fidelity and excellent resolution are close to what you get from flagship devices.

Raw Power

As far as overall performance is concerned, at the heart of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a KIRIN 710f processor. The 710f chipset includes an eight-core CPU with clock speeds capable of up to 2.2 GHz. An integrated graphics chip also helps to handle some of the heavy lifting on this device.

As we mentioned above, it ships in a single configuration of 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage. Storage can be further extended up to 512 GB with and accessory SD card should you look for a little bit of extra room on your device.

Right out of the box, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes running the latest version of Android 9.0. It also can take instant updates directly from Google as soon as they roll OS updates out the door.

GPU Turbo 3.0 technology has been implemented at both the software and hardware level to make sure that your phone flies when you are playing games.

Incredible Camera

Two different cameras helped to set the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 apart from the rest of the pack, particularly in the midrange Android landscape.

A pop-up selfie camera on the top of the phone is mechanically propelled upwards by a lifting device. The selfie camera takes less than a second to emerge or retract, providing a lot more control – and much better images – than your traditional front-facing camera set up.

The rear camera configuration is made up of three different lenses (16 megapixel, 8 megapixel, and a 2-megapixel lens). This allows for a lot of inspiring editing possibilities with the built-in photo processing software – as well as crystal-clear and HD image capture right out of the box.

(Almost) Endless Battery Life

The extra-large capacity battery has been designed in combination with the processing chipset of this phone to give you just as much power as humanly possible. You’ll get up to 108 hours of music and video life on this phone, and can talk on the phone for 22 hours before you’ll have to throw it on the charger again.

Final Verdict

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is one of the most impressive mid-range Android smartphone options available on the market today.

Integrated artificial intelligence, perfectly executed hardware and industrial design elements, and some of the most cutting-edge technology is under the hood of this phone. It’s worth picking up if you’re in the market for something a little less than a traditional flagship but something more than an entry-level or baseline phone, too.
