Huawei’s sub-brand Honor had a variety of new devices to show at the recent IFA 2020 event but it seems like Huawei had a few devices due as well.
The Chinese tech giant has announced the Huawei Y9a for the international market, which is a tweaked version of the Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus that debuted in China a while ago.
Design and Display
Huawei Y9a is no different from the Enjoy 20 Plus in terms of design. You get a full-screen display with no notches and punch-holes due to the pop-up selfie camera. The screen is an LCD panel that measures 6.63-inches and has an FHD+ resolution with a 92% screen to body ratio and a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
The back has a quad-camera that looks similar to the Huawei Mate 30 Pro with a circular cutout and four lenses.
Internals and Storage
While Enjoy Plus 5G comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 720 chip, this one features a MediaTek G80 SoC with up to 128GB UFS 2.1 and 6 to 8GB RAM options. The storage can be expanded further with Huawei’s proprietary NM SD cards.
You get Huawei’s latest EMUI 10.1 on top of Android 10 fresh out of the box but without Google’s Mobile Services.
The quad primary camera setup features a 64MP main unit, an 8MP ultrawide camera with 120 degrees FOV, a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots, and a 2MP macro camera for close-up photography. This camera can record 1080p and 4K video clips.
The pop-up selfie camera is a 16MP shooter capable of recording 1080p videos.
Battery and Pricing
The 4,200 mAh battery comes with 40W fast charging, but that is limited to only a few regions. Middle East, Africa, and some countries in Middle Asia will get 40W fast charging while the rest will only get 22.5W fast charging.
The pricing for Huawei Y9a is yet to be announced.
