Huawei Y9 (2018) was a popular model and now we have the new successor. The new Y9 comes with some changes and the most noticeable is the screen. Just as before users are getting 4 cameras in total. This means 2 at the front and 2 at the back. This year Huawei has lots of phones in the market and they are pretty good. Their P20 Pro is still at top for photography and Mate 2 Pro is the most anticipated phone which is launching soon.

Huawei Y9 2019 Impressions and Verdict
The Huawei Y9 2019 actually has a very big screen and they have put a good amount of battery to support it as well. It has a bigger footprint as it is a big phone so keep that in mind. Huawei is using all that space for features by all means. Y9 (2019) has micro SD card support, rear mounted fingerprint sensor, dual SIM and much more. We like the fact that Huawei always keeps lots of sensors in their phones.
Lets compare it to the older model or Huawei Y9 (2018) and other market competition. In comparison, there is a upgrade in processor and screen for sure but we must also think of price. This big 6.5″ screen can be great for movie lovers, web browsers and content consumers which is a perk. But the older model also has good battery, specs and cameras.
If you want a big screen and newer model with a bit faster processor then you can go for new Y9 but if you want to save about Rs 10,000 then Y9 (2018) is still a good choice. There are other phones such as Xiaomi Mi A2 at less price which offer better processor and same specs with quite better camera as well. So we would tell our readers to actually have a look at Mi A2 if you are at this budget.
