Huawei recently announced the midrange Huawei Y9 (2018) in Thailand. It has specs similar to the Nova 2i but with less RAM and a larger 4,000 mAh battery.

The Y9 (2018) features a 5.93-inch full HD IPS display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 by 1080 resolution. Inside, it is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

The phone has four cameras — a dual 16MP + 2MP rear camera with PDAF and a LED flash; and a dual 13MP + 2MP front camera. The 2MP sensors are used for depth information.

Below the rear cameras is the fingerprint sensor, which should have a fast response rate similar to that of the Nova 2i.

The handset comes with EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, along with a generous 4,000 mAh battery.

No price or availability was released. Rumors are pointing to a USD250 (around Php13,000) price tag. The phone launched in Thailand. Hopefully it launches in the Philippines as well.
