Huawei’s upcoming budget Y9 (2018) has made an appearance at the FCC – US equivalent to the Chinese TENAA. Despite all the controversies and setbacks in the US which includes the failed partnership with AT&T and the scandal involving the fake user’s reviews at BestBuy. The Chinese Behemoth keeps pushing forward its smartphone campaign in the competitive market.
Giving a look at the leaked pictures, the Huawei’s newest smartphone appears to follow the current 18:9 trend that was massively adopted by the company. The tall display carries a simplistic design with the company’s name placed at the bottom and a dual-camera setup on the upper part, alongside the earpiece and the sensors.
On the rear, the handset carriers the same aluminum build that got popularized by the Mate and Honor smartphones. Furthermore, we have the usual double-camera setup that doesn’t boast the Leica branding, something exclusive from Huawei’s flagships. According to reports, this dual setup will consist of a 13MP unit coupled by another 2MP sensor for the Portrait Effect. Placed in the center we have a Fingerprint Sensor that sports a shiny contrast around it.
