The Huawei Y9s and Honor 9X are now available in Malaysia with a retail price tag of RM999. If you’re looking for something more affordable without sacrificing on performance, screen size and battery, the dual-tone Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has just gotten a price cut of RM100.
Despite being RM200 cheaper, the Y9 Prime 2019 is very identical to the latest Y9s and 9X duo. It shares the same 6.59″ Full HD+ IPS display, a 12nm Kirin 710F processor and a pop-up 16MP selfie camera. However, the RM799 device only comes with 4GB RAM but it still gets a generous 128GB of storage.
For imaging, it settles for a 16MP main camera, instead of a higher resolution 48MP shooter. But it is still equipped with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera as well as a 2MP camera for depth effects.
Keeping the lights on is a decent 4,000mAh battery that charges via USB-C. In case you’re wondering, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is still pre-loaded with Google apps and services.
