Amazon India has recently started a dedicated landing page for the Huawei Y9 2019 smartphone. The web page only contains information on the salient features of the smartphone. New information reveals that the company will be launching the smartphone on Jan. 7 in India.
The below poster reveals that Huawei will be holding a dedicated launch event for the smartphone in New Delhi, India on Jan. 7. The event will begin at 11:00 AM IST. The Chinese manufacturer has sent out invites for the launch event to the media.
The Huawei Y9 2019 was announced in October last year and it has been available in some markets. It features a massive IPS LCD display of 6.5 inches. The waterdrop enabled display delivers full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a tall aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
The Kirin 710 that was designed to power upper mid-range phones is present under the hood of the Huawei Y9 2019. During its October launch, the company had announced that it would be available in two models such as 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage + 6 GB RAM. However, most of the countries have received only the 64 GB edition of the phone. Hence, the Huawei Y9 2019 coming to India may only come in single storage version of 64 GB.
The rear side of the Huawei Y9 2019 features 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera. At the frontside of the phone is a 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual selfie shooter. The back panel of the phone also features a fingerprint sensor. The handset is packed with a 4,000mAh battery. However, there is no support for fast charging for the big battery of the Huawei Y9 2019.
In terms of specs, the Huawei Y9 2019 seems to be a good rival for the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM edition of the Redmi Note 6 Pro is selling in India for Rs. 13,999 (~$199). Probably, Huawei could be selling the Y9 2019 with a similar price tag. The handset will be exclusively available for purchase through Amazon India.
