There’s plenty of reasons to pick up the Y9s!
If you’re moving up to a mid-range phone this new decade, Huawei’s new smartphone might just be for you. The Y9s is a gorgeous mid-range phone that has many flagship features without a flagship price. Here are five reasons to pick up this beauty:
Gorgeous, flagship styling
Huawei’s mid-range offerings have always been visual feasts, but the Y9s is on an entirely different level. Made with a state-of-the-art nano-texture process, the Breathing Crystal colorway of this mid-range phone looks almost identical to the company’s more expensive P30 smartphone. For fans of more conservative colors, there’s also the classic Midnight Black to choose from.
And while other companies are content on using plastic for the construction of their devices, the Y9s uses glass treated with a 21-layer process for added durability and aesthetics.
A large, FullView display without a notch
If you’re the sort of person that hates having a notch on your phone, you’re going to love the Y9s. The phone has a large, 6.59-inch notch-less display with a 2340×1080 full HD+ resolution panel, perfect for gaming, watching movies and daily use.
Because it doesn’t have a notch, the Huawei Y9s has a 91% screen-to-body ratio, along with an eye comfort mode for prolonged use.
Tough as nails 16-megapixel pop-up camera
Worried about the durability of the 16-megapixel pop-up camera? Don’t – the Y9s’ pop-up camera is one of the toughest in the industry, and has undergone extensive testing to ensure maximum durability. It’s been tested extensively with up to 100,000 pop-up and retract cycles without damage. The pop-up mechanism is also rated to hold a force of 15 kilos, and retracts automatically when it detects the phone is in free-fall.
Aside from being incredibly tough, the 16-megapixel camera is perfect for late-night selfies and portrait, thanks to its low-light capabilities.
Versatile 48-megapixel triple rear cameras
Despite a mid-range price tag, the Huawei Y9s is packed with flagship-level optics. The phone uses a 48-megapixel main camera as its primary sensor with a f/1.8 aperture lens. The main camera is supplemented by an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens with an f/2.4 aperture opening and a 2-megapixel depth camera.
The 48-megapixel camera is able to capture excellent detail for sharper and clearer shots, and Huawei’s AI tech further enhances its capabilities via machine learning. Because of Huawei’s AI mastery, the 48-megapixel camera is able to take amazing low-light shots via hand-held night shooting modes.
The camera can also take 120-degree wide-angle shots, and EIS anti-shake video recording and 480 FPS slow-mo recording compliments the phone’s video recording capabilities.
The Y9s comes with Huawei’s Kirin 710F octa-core processor, built on a 12nm process that’s more power-efficient compared to its competitors.
The Y9s is capable of running most modern Android games, thanks to its modern processor and GPU Turbo 3.0.
Aside from that, the phone also comes with plenty of RAM at 6GB, along with 128GB of internal storage that can further be expanded via microSD card up to 512GB. The phone is powered by EMUI 9.1, Huawei’s own UI.
Speaking of power-efficiency, you can expect around a day’s worth of juice for the Y9s, thanks to its large 4000mAh battery. Combined with the efficient, AI-powered Kirin 710F, the Huawei Y9s has enough juice to last you around a day or more.
The Huawei Y9s is pretty affordable at Php 13990 and is now available to buy in stores.
