As noted by Huawei Central, Huawei has recently added a Y9a on its global website.

Here are its key specs:

  • 6.63-inch, FHD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) IPS LCD
  • Octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 (2 x Cortex-A75 + 6 x Cortex-A55)
  • Mali-G52 MC2 GPU
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM (for APAC), supports NM SD card
  • Quad-lens rear camera:
    • 64MP, f/1.8 main + 8MP, f/2.4 ultra-wide + 2MP depth + 2MP macro
  • Pop-up 16MP, f/2.2 selfie camera
  • 4,300mAh battery (4,200mAh for Middle East, Africa and some countries in Middle Asia)
  • 22.5W Huawei SuperCharge (40W for Middle East, Africa and some countries in Middle Asia)
  • Dual-band 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.1
  • USB-C port (USB 2.0 speeds), 3.5mm headphone jack
  • EMUI 10.1 (based on Android 10)
  • Available in silver, pink and black

To summarise, the Y9a’s tentpole features include its notch-less display (the selfie camera is in a pop-up module); quad-camera system that supports up to ISO 51,200; and up to 40W Huawei SuperCharge that lets you top up the charge to 70% in 30 minutes. It also has a '3D arc design and nano-textured surface' for a comfortable grip. If the price is right and you can live without Google services, this looks like a very attractive mid-ranger.

And just to be clear, Huawei has many handsets in its Y series and not all of them would come to Singapore. We’ll update you again if Huawei Singapore decides to carry this model here.
