Huawei Y9 2018 Comes with Android Oreo, 4000mAh, and Four Cameras


The Chinese electronics giant, Huawei, has just announced a brand new midranger smartphone in Thailand. It is not just a typical device in the midrange category that you will find around, thanks to its four-camera setup, the latest Android Oreo with EMUI 8.0 OS, and a much bigger 4000mAh battery pack. Not to mention the taller 18:9 screen. Meet the new Huawei Y9 2018.

Thankfully, the Huawei Y9 2018 version does not come with a notch. At least not yet. I don't know about you but some people like the notch idea which is now flooding the Android devices after being popularized by Apple through the iPhone X release. And some people just don't. 

In terms of technical specifications, the Huawei Y9 2018 shares a lot with the Mate 10 Lite or Honor 9i or the Nova 2i as known in the Philippine market. Except that the RAM and internal storage are much lesser here, but in exchange for that, we get the latest Android 8.0 Oreo with also the latest EMUI 8.0 skin on top, and much a bigger 4000mAh battery pack right out of the box. 

Another feature that makes this phone similar to the mentioned devices above is its cameras. There are four of them in total. On the back users will have 13MP+2MP combination while selfie cameras are pegged at 16MP+2MP.

  • 5.93-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD Display

Pricing for this device in the Thai market has not been revealed yet even though the smartphone is now officially announced there. It is also not known yet if this Y9 2018 handset will be released in other markets especially in the Philippines where we already have the Nova 2i and its slightly watered down version, the Nova 2 Lite
