Huawei Y9 teaser surfaces as images of the phone are found in FCC documents

Huawei Y9 teaser surfaces as images of the phone are found in FCC documents
Last year, the Huawei Y7 was released as a low-to-mid-range handset carrying a 5.5-inch HD display (720 x 1280), powered by the Snapdragon 435 chipset. This year, Huawei apparently will jump to the Y9; a teaser for the phone was tweeted tonight by tipster Evan Blass, and the FCC recently posted some images of the handset that happen to match leaked press renders of the device (seen in the images above). There is some speculation concerning several key Y9 specs, but it does appear from the images that it will sport an 18:9 aspect ratio.

As the teaser hints, the phone does have a dual camera setup in back, but it also has another two snappers in front. If our math skills haven't left us completely, that adds up to four cameras on the Y9. A fingerprint scanner adorns the back of the phone, and reportedly a 3500mAh battery will be in charge of keeping the lights on. Android Nougat will be pre-installed.

We would caution you that the Y7 did not feature any U.S. LTE bands, although those stateside can use the device on AT&T's 3G network. Despite the FCC approval, there is no guarantee that the Huawei Y9 will see the light of day in the states, especially with the U.S. Government wary of any device sporting the Huawei name.
