Have you seen the recent addition/release to the Huawei Y series? It’s called Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 – successor to the Huawei Y9 2019. The Y9 and Y9 Prime are really similar with certain specifications, although there are some major differences as the Y9 Prime is actually supposed to be an upgrade.
Question then is, what sets them aside? Well, we won’t bore you by going into detailed specifications and builds of both phones. We will quickly state the attributes both phones do not have in common in this article. However, if you are the full specifications type of human, kindly view this from the phone specifications section on our blog.
Now let’s get right to it…
The major difference between the phones is the design/display type; while the Y9 2019 features a 6.5 inch panel with a notch that houses two front cameras instead of one, the Y9 prime 2019 has a 6.59-inch screen size with full-HD+ resolution which is a bit larger than the Y9. The Y9 Prime has a notch free screen display and this is because of the 16MP Motorized pop-up AI selfie camera which is fast becoming the trend for some smartphones in 2019 by the way, and unlike the y9 Prime 2019, the y9 2019 packs a double 16 + 2 MP front camera as mentioned earlier.
Speaking of cameras, the Y9 Prime sports a triple camera set up at the rear, consisting of a 16 MP wide angle, 8 MP ultrawide sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. Y9 2019 on the other hand came with a double 13 MP and 2 MP depth sensor similar to the selfie camera.
Another difference is the operating system that powers both phones; while Y9 runs on Android Oreo (8), Y9 Prime is based on the latest Android 9.0 (Pie); EMUI 9, although, both phones are powered by the Kirin 710 octa-core chipset and a 4000 mAh battery.
When it comes to connectivity, Y9 2019 still uses a Micro USB, while its successor, Y9 prime 2019, uses a 2.0 Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. And lastly, Y9 Prime comes in one RAM and storage option – 4GB RAM and 128 inbuilt storage which doubles the 64GB storage of the Y9 2019.
