“The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a mid-range offering with Kirin 710 SoC ticking at its core, triple rear cameras, and 6.59-inch Ultra FullView display”

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has been launched in India. It’s the latest Y-series smartphone from the brand and a successor to Huawei Y9 2019 that was launched earlier this year in the country. The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is the first smartphone from the brand to pack a pop-up selfie camera, which is tucked away when not in use and pushed up from the body by way of a motorised mechanism. The phone also boasts of its design that shimmers under light, triple rear camera setup, a beefy battery, and the mid-range HiSilicon chipset. The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 will be up against the likes of Realme X and OPPO K3 – the other pop-up selfie camera smartphones in the price range.
