With the announcement of P Smart Z, Huawei has also jumped into the pop-up selfie camera bandwagon. Last week, some renders of the pop-up camera phone were leaked of Huawei Y9 prime which looks like a variant of Huawei P Smart Z.

The design and hardware are similar to Huawei P Smart Z except we see an additional camera sensor at the back. The launch date is not yet confirmed however the leaked posters and images give away the specifications.

Design and Display

Just like Huawei P Smart Z, the phone has a two-tone glossy finish at the back with a triple sensor camera vertically arranged at the top left and a fingerprint sensor housed in the middle.

The phone features a 6.59-inch screen with a 91 percent screen to body ratio and Full HD+ (1080 x 2340) resolution.

Internal and Storage

Under the hood, the phone features octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710F chipset paired with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in memory. The memory is expandable up to 512 GB via an external memory card.

The phone runs on EMUI 9.0 flavored Android 9.0 Pie.


The phone features a triple sensor rear camera with a 16 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide lens that has a 120-degree FOV and a 2 MP depth sensor.

The selfie camera sits in the pop-up mechanism and is a single 16 MP snapper.

Battery and Pricing

Y9 Prime 2019 runs on a 4000 mAh battery which comes with fast charging.

At this point, the phone seems like it will be priced below $300 but we cannot say anything until the price is officially revealed. The launch date is still under wraps.
