Huawei Y9 2018 review
Front and rear dual cameras
Our Huawei Y9 2018 review finds a camera phone that gives equal attention to both front and rear cameras. Finally, you can give your landscape and selfie photographs studio quality effects that will make them pop on social media.
The Huawei Y9 2018 has a very big 5.93” FullView Display.
With the new 18:9 screen ratio and FHD+ resolution, you get to see more rows of pixels and hence more of a webpage or app, without scrolling.
Comparison: FHD resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels while FHD+ resolution is 2160 x 1080 pixels.
Design and processor
The front of the Huawei Y9 2018 is made from a smooth piece of 2.5D curved glass. This meets a metal body that is coloured in your choice of Gold, Blue or Black. The weight at 170g is light enough and there is a pretty average 7.89mm phone thickness.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the Huawei Y9 2018 is released.
The Huawei phone has a Huawei made Kirin 659 octa-core 2.36GHz processor with 3GB RAM. This gives you all of the power you might need for gaming and the opening of photos and videos without delay.

All your biometrics
With the Huawei Y9 2018 you can take your pick of biometric security with either Face Unlock or a fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor is positioned on the back, so either route seems just as natural as the other.

If you have content to transfer over from an old phone, then there is a 32GB internal memory. If you need more memory in the future, then there is a memory card slot.
Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8.0
The Huawei Y9 2018 gets Google’s latest operating system and Huawei’s EMUI user interface. There are lots of tweaks made by Huawei and these give a unique visual experience.
Features that you might find useful include the ability to use two apps side-by-side in a split screen view. If you are looking for entertainment, then you can activate Game Mode. This allocates processor resources to give the optimum experience and it makes notifications silent, so that you can remain immersed in the game. You can also have a laugh with the Karaoke Mode and real time sound feedback.
Camera & Video
The Huawei Y9 2018 has a 13MP and 2MP dual main camera and a 8MP and 2MP dual selfie camera. With these you can enjoy true depth of field effects and the wide aperture lets you create studio quality bokeh effects, with the option to refocus the photo after it has been taken.

The Portrait Mode has ten beauty levels and you can get a natural pose by opening your palm to activate the shutter countdown. You can have more fun with the AR lens and change the background in real time or add stickers and costumes with cosplay effects.
1.7 days use
The 4,000mAh battery offers really impressive usage times and (if you buy the cable) you can even recharge other devices, because the reserves are so large. If you keep the juice for yourself, then you can enjoy up to 117 hours of music playback or up to 14 hours of video playback.
