Huawei Y9a Unveiled: Helio G80, 6/8GB RAM, Pop-Up Selfie Camera, and more

Huawei’s mid range game has been pretty on point uptil now, as they’ve released quality phones in that segment which is why they’ve gotten to the number 1 spot of the phone manufacturers list. Moving on, there’s another addition that’s coming to Huawei’s mid range phones, being the Y series, as the Y9a is all prepped up and ready to go in Iraq. We have seen banners of advertisements about the phone - but now it’s officially announced from Huawei itself.

The front of the phone looks elegant and clean, as it’s a full screen experience, without any interruptions in the middle due to the camera situation. The front camera is going to be housed inside, and will use a pop-up mechanism to reveal itself from the phone. This allows more real estate for the display, and makes the phone look much better overall. The screen itself is a 6.63” IPS LCD panel, and is expected to be decent considering Huawei’s history with LCD displays.


Coming to the back of the phone, we can see a quad camera setup, being a 64+8+2+2 array, with an ultra wide and macro lens inside. There is also Electronic Image Stabilization included in the camera setup, so all videos taken by the phone are going to be stable.

Powering the phone is going to be the Helio G80 SoC - an adequate chipset which is pretty decent for gaming, and will likely run most of your games smoothly at medium graphics. This will be paired with either 6 or 8GB of RAM, so you won’t have to worry about your phone hanging all that much while multitasking. Inside will be Android 10 included, with EMUI on top - but there won’t be any Google services inside, hence you’ll have to make do with Huawei’s own AppGallery. There’s also a 4,300mAh battery cell inside the phone, with a fast charging support of 22.5W - great for the price.

The phone will retail for a cool 239 dollars, or 200 euros in Iraq, and will release on the 13th of September. Global release is expected to follow soon after as well - as we expect the phone to get plenty of attention worldwide.
