Huawei has launched the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 in the Kenyan market and has made it available for pre-order at Ksh. 24,999.

The phone is available for pre-order on Jumia and in Huawei retail stores between 26th June and  4th July. Those who pre-order will get bluetooth headphones.

The Huawei Y9 Prime comes with a huge 6.59 inch screen that covers almost the entire front side of the phone. They have been able to do this by making the selfie camera a pop one, instead of placing it on the front of the smartphone. Other sensors and components such as the receiver earpiece and ambient light sensor have been moved to the top and bottom of the screen respectively, effectively removing bezels and notches on the screen. The auto pop-up selfie camera is 16 Megapixels and it pops up automatically out of the top of the phone once the camera is turned on and the selfie mode is selected. According to the company, the feature allows for roughly 100,000 pop-ups and retractions without any damage.

The smartphone runs on Android 9 operating system plus EMUI 9.0. It comes with a Hisilicon Kirin 710F processor, 128GB internal storage, and 4GB RAM. It comes with rear triple cameras (16 Megapixels + 8 Megapixels + 2 Megapixels) and a large 4000 mAh battery. It is available in three colours i.e. Midnight Black, Emerald Green and Sapphire Blue. The phone also supports VoLTE so it will be able to work with the newly launched Safaricom VoLTE.

The company has also announced that the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 will come with screen damage warranty. Through the warranty, Huawei will replace your screen in case you damage it accidentally. The screen damage warranty will enable customers to get 1 free screen replacement upto three months from the date of purchase of the phone.
