Huawei Y9 (2018) officially unveiled with 18:9 display, four cameras, massive battery
Huawei is determined to go with the flow and adopt the new 18:9 display trend. The company's new mid-range smartphone offers not just such a screen, but also a gigantic battery. Seen as something unusual not long ago, 18:9 displays have become the norm these days, so it will be interesting to see what other parts of a phone will suffer such modifications in the coming years.

Anyway, Huawei's newly introduced Y9 (2018) smartphone sports a 5.93-inch display with FHD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio. Hardware-wise, the handset is quite decent since Huawei included an octa-core Kirin 659 processor, 3GB RAM, and 32GB expandable storage.

As the title says, Huawei Y9 (2018) drains energy from a massive 4,000 mAh battery and it's not even thick at 7.9mm. On the back, the smartphone features a dual-camera setup (13MP+2MP), while in the front it comes with a similar configuration (16MP+2MP).

Another positive aspect is that it runs Android 8.0 Oreo (EMUI 8.0 included) right out of the box. The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back side, which is made out of metal.

The smartphone is available in three colors – black, blue and gold, but we have yet to learn details about its price, although rumor has it it will sell for around €200. For the time being, it's only been introduced in Thailand, but we can safely assume Huawei will make it available in more countries very soon.
