When you open the Phone’s carton, you will see the following:

• The Smartphone
• A mini box or envelope that contains a silicon casing
• SIM ejector
• A quick start user guide
• 10 Watt fast charger with a Type-C cable

Design AND Build

First, the smartphone does not have any notch design of any kind. But rather it comes with a pop-up design where the front camera is placed. This is not the first time we are seeing such design, as we’ve seen similar design already in Xiaomi Mi 9T (Redmi K20).

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has a 6.59″-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a pop-up front camera and a dual 4G LTE SIM slot on top. While on the left side we have nothing because of the pop-up selfie camera placed on the left top.

Moreover, on the right side we have the volume button and a power button. And lastly, we have the speaker, USB type-c pot and 3.5mm Jack pot all placed on the bottom side of the phone.

While on its back, we have the noticeable tri-lens camera. The 16MP main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor. There is also a rear mounted fingerprint at the top back of the phone. But sadly, the phone is not water proof. So you may want to be careful around water.


Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has a big screen of 6.59″-inch IPS LCD touchscreen display with a FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The display doesn’t have any notch design as mentioned earlier. Thus, you have the full screen display for yourself and this takes the aspect ratio to 19.5.9 and the screen-to-body ratio to 85%.

However, one major weakness of the smartphone is the lack of an Amoled panel. The likes of Tecno Phantom 9, Infinix Note 6 and Samsung Galaxy A70, all featured an amoled panel. OLED panel displays an accurate colors including deep blacks that are great for watching movies of which the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 lacks.

Software And Hardware

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is powered by the Chinese tech company’s own Hisllicon Krin 710F chipset with 4GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. The device is fast, and works smoothly.

On the gaming front, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 can handle any game smoothly. It played graphic intense games at high quality or resolution.

Concerning the software of this smartphone, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box on top of it’s own software; EMUI 9.0.1

However, we can’t confirm yet if the device will get an Android 10 Q update before the year runs out.

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 camera interface is really that simple and it’s something you can relate to easily. Thus, there is really nothing new here.

However, the images captured by the tri-lens camera are distinct. The 16MP main shooter is proficient and the 8MP ultra-wide angle lens can cover up-to 118 degree.

Moreover, there is also a 16MP pop-up front camera that can take great selfies. According to Huawei, the front camera can pop-up approximately 300,000 times without having a fault.

• 16MP : Main Shooter
• 8MP : Ultra-wide angle lens
• 2MP: depth sensor

Sadly, you can’t take an ultra-wide angle selfie picture and you can’t shoot quality 4K videos as well.


Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 can chest out all games thrown at it. The smartphone is good for gaming. Heavy duty games like PUBG, FIFA 2019, PES 2019, and Mortal Kombat played smoothly without hanging.

Battery Life

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 review: Here you’ll have a durable battery that can last you for two days. The 4000mAh battery capacity is reliable and long lasting.

Moreover, with the follow come 10 watt type-c charger, the smartphone can charge from 0% to 100% in 2hours 35 mins.
