Huawei Consumer Business group has selected Saudi Arabia as the first country to launch the much-anticipated latest edition of the Y series, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019. The development of the Y-Series mobile phones is designed to meet the needs and requirements of the youth, but also to meet their future aspirations in smartphones. This represents the best value for money against the advanced capabilities that young users are looking for in a smart phone these days.
The latest iteration in this series, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019, fully embodies this fact and takes it even further than ever before. Packed with an incredible roster of features and a one of a kind pop up camera, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 is geared to change people’s perception of what economic phones can really do and what they are capable of.
Remarkably, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 contains no notch, slider, or hole. The screen is simply a smooth and unobstructed glass surface, offering a futuristic feel and wholly immersive viewing experience. The Y9's full-screen display measures at staggering 19.5:9 in aspect ratio, and takes up 91% of the front surface, giving the phone a slender body and first-rate aesthetics. The Y9's 6.59-inch negative LCD screen displays 16.7 million color gradients (256 levels each of red, green, and blue), and boasts a wide color gamut of 85% (typical value). This results in authentic colors, reminiscent of the world around us, and compellingly lifelike images on the screen.
A major contributor to the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019's enormous display is the new Auto pop-up camera. Huawei engineers took inspiration from the floating roof design seen in certain cars, most famously, the Mini Cooper. A crucial difference is that, while a car's floating roof is designed to give the appearance that the roof is disconnected from the body, the Y9's pop-up camera conveys the opposite effect, that it is effortlessly integrated into the phone body. During daily usage, the front camera is completely invisible, hidden within the body. When the user switches to the front camera in the interface, it is automatically activated, and raises within a second.
The HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 packs a 16MP + 8MP + 2MP triple-camera on the back. Both the 16MP primary and 8MP secondary sensors feature a 6P (six-lens plastic array) design that reproduces minute details within an image and captures more photons. As a result, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 empowers users to recreate scenes in their full complexity, with enhanced image clarity, contrast, and overall quality. The 16MP primary camera's F/1.8 aperture is a top performer, receiving 50% more light than the F/2.2 aperture that is more commonly seen on the market, as well as focusing more quickly and controlling noise more effectively. The 8MP sensor offers a 120° field of view that fits more within the frame and increases visual tension, creating a three-dimensional effect that is even more mesmerizing due to the bezel-less display. The 2MP sensor assists the primary camera in generating a lifelike depth of field in the photo, enabling SLR-quality images on a palm-sized handset
AI image stabilization algorithms are used to support handheld long exposure shots for a maximum of 6 seconds at nighttime. This improves the dynamic range and makes vivid, colorful photography possible in dark environments. The Y9's super slow-motion feature records videos at 480 frames per second, then plays them back at 1/16th of the normal speed (for example, extending a 0.5s clip to 8 seconds).
The HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019's front 16MP pop-up camera, with 1.0μm pixels and an F/2.2 aperture, is supported by artificial intelligence for instant and accurate scene and object recognition. The camera can identify blue skies, greenery, indoor scenes, and snowy landscapes, and adjust the parameters to optimize the natural lighting conditions. A total of eight scenarios are supported by the AI feature. The recently upgraded AI backlight imaging technology removes concerns about lighting when taking selfies. It retains details with stunning clarity and naturally-grounded colors, creating captivating selfies regardless of whether the light source is in front, to the side, or behind you.
The new AI natural beautification algorithm personalizes images to account for your age, gender, and skin tone, bringing out the best possible you, while preserving all of the subtle facial features captured by the powerful lenses. It features intelligent skin smoothing, skin tone adjustment, acne removal, facial contouring, lighting effects, and a range of other features, ensuring that your selfies dazzle on social media.
The HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 comes equipped with a 4,000 mAh (typical value) battery. Huawei's proprietary smart power-saving technology boosts battery life to unforeseen levels. Huawei lab tests reveal that the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 can run a continuous 14-hour 4G network connection, play music non-stop for 65 hours, stream videos for 9 straight hours, engage in non-stop calls for 52 hours, or in uninterrupted gaming for 9 hours (data varies by screen brightness, audio volume, and network connection status).
The HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 utilizes a Type-C port, which enjoys a smaller size, faster transmission, and greater convenience than its counterparts. The flat shape and rounded corners are reversible, meaning that you can connect it without concern for the direction the cable is facing. Great news for some is that the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 retains the standard 3.5mm headset jack! Now users don't need to shell out a fortune for a new pair of Bluetooth earphones.
That and much more, the HUAWEI Y9 Prime 2019 is now available for purchase at several authorized retailers in Saudi Arabia and the Huawei E-shop for an unbeatable price of SAR 969.
