After weeks of rumours and expected specifications of Y9a by tipsters all over the world, Huawei has officially unveiled the Huawei Y9a, the latest device in the Y series quietly.
According to Gizchina.com, Huawei Y9a is the global version of the Enjoy 20 Plus 5G, but with a number of changes, that is, it is not a complete copy.
“Externally, the devices are identical, and both have the design of the flagship Mate 30. Huawei Y9a received the same Full HD + display with a diagonal of 6.63 inches, only, unfortunately, it lacks support for 90 Hz, like the Enjoy 20 Plus 5G. In addition, there is a less productive platform: MediaTek Helio G80 versus Dimensity 720.
The 4200 mAh battery has remained unchanged, as is the 40-watt charging. True, there is a small postscript on the Huawei website, which says that the 40-watt charging support will be available only in a number of countries. The rest of the smartphone will be equipped with a 22.5W device.
The camera has also changed somewhat. The resolution of 8 megapixels has been preserved, while the macro camera has a lower resolution (2 versus 5 megapixels), but the main sensor here has a resolution of 64 megapixels versus 48 megapixels in the Enjoy 20 Plus 5G.” Gizchina says.
