Huawei from the start has been an excellent manufacturer, one that tends to all the different price segments of the market, and that’s one of the major reasons why they’re currently the biggest phone maker in the world, beating the likes of Samsung and Apple to it even. Huawei is great in all of its segments, be it flagship, with the likes of the P and Mate series from them - or it could be the Y series that steal the show in the mid range department and carries it on in the budget region too - the Chinese manufacturer has got it all covered. Now, another mid range device from Huawei is coming to the market, as it was seen in a poster at a Huawei outlet - as the Y9a will serve as an upper mid range device from the Chinese giant.
The Y9a seems like Huawei didn’t have any other design to come up with, so they just went with the layout from their Mate devices, especially the Mate 30 and 40. This can be seen the most evidently with the camera department, as it’s almost an exact replica of the flagship series from Huawei, with the donut style camera module. The circular stove top camera layout consists of a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra wide lens, and a set of two more 2MP lenses that could be a depth sensor and a macro lens. Moving on, the design seems slick, with a smooth finish all over the device, with the colors reflecting nicely on the back.
If we talk about the front, then there is no interruption whatsoever to the display, as the camera module is a pop-up one, hence you get a whole lot of screen real estate which is always a plus point. The device is likely to come with a MediaTek processor, as the production of Huawei’s Kirin chips seems to have stopped from the US after the Mate 40 series, and now they’re out of stock apparently. Moreover, the device will feature 8/128GB as it’s expected to be a smooth device out and out.
Huawei’s main issue still seems to be in its software side of matters, as they still are banned from using Google services thanks to Trump putting countless sanctions on the Chinese behemoth. The phone will use Huawei’s own app gallery as opposed to Google’s Play Store.
