SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000 (2019)

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019

The Y9 Prime 2019 holds the accolade of being the first Huawei smartphone released in Malaysia with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism. It also comes with the new midrange Kirin 710F processor that’s tied to 4GB of RAM.

With a triple-camera setup consisting of a 16MP main camera, an 8MP ultra wide-angle shooter and a 2MP depth camera, Huawei’s latest midrange device doesn’t really stand out in in any particular way.

You get a 16MP front-facing camera, which isn’t as good as some of the other smartphones on this list—again, nothing spectacular. But the device does have a great 4,000mAh battery, while USB-C support in this price range is always appreciated.

And the variant being officially sold here is the 128GB storage version, which is expandable via microSD by up to 1TB. Neat.

Here‘s a more detailed look at the device.
