Huawei Y9a With Quad Rear Cameras, MediaTek Helio G80 SoC Launched
Huawei continues to experience great difficulties in getting its smartphones to reach the level of popularity that it once shared with top brands like Samsung and Apple. Despite all the problems aside, the company has been now focusing in launching its flagship Mate 40 series this month.
Since they lost access to Google services and applications the company is now somewhat less concerned about it’s implication on future sales and growth in the global market. Hence, the company has established itself stronger than ever before in it’s home country China, where surplus sales figures has helped the company to maintain it’s rankings in the global sales figures.
The Chinese company recently launched it’s latest phone Huawei Y9a with a pop-up selfie camera. The phone is heavily inspired by the Huawei Enjoy 20 that was launched last week and shares most of its design lines and specifications . The Huawei Y9a comes with quad cameras on the rear, 3D arc design, nano textured back cover, 40W fast charging support and is powered by a Mediatek Helio G80 SoC.
Although Huawei Y9a’s design remains identical and equally attractive, the few differences in hardware could be crucial in the level of success it is expected to achieve in various global markets.
