Back in March, Huawei announced the Enjoy 8 series. The series includes the Enjoy 8 (Huawei Y7 Prime 2018), the Enjoy 8 Plus (Huawei Y9 2018), and the Enjoy 8e. Six months later, it appears it is set to launch a successor for one of the models as the specs and render of the Enjoy 9 Plus has leaked online.
The leak comes from Evan Blass who posted the details on Twitter this morning. The Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus has an entirely different look from its predecessor. Gone is the all-metal body and in its place is a glass rear with a gradient finish.
The front is also wearing a new look as Huawei has included a notch. The notch has a deep recess much like that of the Pixel 3 XL and it is also home to dual cameras. The display is curved at the corners and the lower bezel is thinner than that of the Enjoy 8 Plus.
With respect to specs, the Enjoy 9 Plus packs a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2340 LCD display. It ditches the Kirin 659 processor for the more recent Kirin 710 chipset. It will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The Enjoy 9 Plus has dual cameras on both sides. The rear cameras according to Evan Blass are a 16MP sensor and a 2MP sensor. They are housed together and are vertically placed on the left corner of the phone. Below the sensors is a LED flash and the words “AI CAMERA”. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner in the middle. The front cameras are a 13MP + 2MP duo.
The Enjoy 9 Plus will come with a 4,000mAh battery just like its predecessor and run EMUI 8.2 out of the box.
The specs of the phone are near identical to that of the Huawei Y9 (2019) (Huawei JKM-AL00a) seen on TENAA last week. However, the TENAA listing says the rear cameras are 20MP + 2MP sensors and one of the front cameras is a 16MP sensor. It also mentioned the phone will have a 4GB RAM + 64GB model in addition to the 6GB RAM + 128GB version.
There is no info on when the device will be announced but we believe it isn’t far off.
