Huawei Y9s silently released in the Philippines

    Huawei is following up last year’s Y9 Prime 2019 with the Huawei Y9s. The Huawei Y9s largely shares the same specifications as its predecessor with the side-mounted fingerprint sensor, more RAM, and a 48MP main camera being the most significant additions.

    The Huawei Y9s comes with a 6.59-inch 2340 x 1080 LTPS display. There’s no notch or punch-holes to be found here since the device comes with a 16MP f/2.2 motorized pop-up camera.

    As mentioned, the device now comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of a rear-mounted variant. The camera has also been upgraded with a 48MP f/1.8 main, an 8MP f/2.4 ultrawide lens, and a 2MP f/2.4 portrait shooter.

    Inside its two-tone chassis (depending on the variant) is a 4,000mAh battery charged via a USB Type-C connection at the bottom. The chip remains the same with a Kirin 710F with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
