By Team BitBol, 

As smartphones are constantly evolving, consumers are taking more factors into consideration when choosing a
smartphone. In addition to powerful performance and a captivating design, consumers are also looking for a great
camera to capture memories in high clarity. Among a wide variety of products, smartphones offer more comprehensive
functions, which are naturally more attractive to consumers, and the HUAWEI Y9a certainly offers consumers a wide
range of functions. Let’s get our hands on it and find out how it works.

4200mAh battery and 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge

The HUAWEI Y9a is packed with a 4200 mAh battery and supports 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge. The smartphone charges
to 70% in 30 minutes and to 100% battery in an hour, which is awesome!

The HUAWEI Y9a is equipped with a bunch of hardware tailored for powerful gaming performance. Let’s take NBA 2K19
as an example. During an hour of continuous gameplay, there is no noticeable frame rate loss and the game ran
smoothly with no lags or latency, even when switched between different scenes. The phone didn’t heat up much either,
which shows that it has pretty good cooling performance. After playing for an hour, the phone still felt cool and it only
used 9% of battery, reaching a good balance between power consumption and performance.

Efficient and hassle-free multitasking

Generally, the most annoying thing of using a smartphone is that some apps may be “killed” in the background when the
user has to leave the task on hand to answer a call or reply a message, for example. The game or video they were just
playing might be forced to shut down and need re-loading the next time you want to play. So what’s really impressive in
HUAWEI Y9a is that when playing NBA 2K19 on the phone, even after switching from the game app to open YouTube
and Google Maps, the game didn’t need re-loading and was exactly the way it was left. It ran super smoothly.


The EMUI 10.1 improves gameplay experience for users as well. Thanks to the Game Assistant, users can open WeChat
or other apps in the middle of the game, so they can reply to messages without quitting. It also includes anti-
mistouching and do not disturb features to ensure an uninterrupted experience, ideal for mobile game lovers.


Flagship-inspired design for a distinct look

It has a 6.63-inch TFT LCD (IPS) display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 (FHD+). Using a pop-up camera design, the
screen panel remains complete with no notches or holes to be seen, and ensures an impressively high screen-to-body
ratio of 92%. The back panel is made of 3D curved glass with an iconic Halo ring designed into it, which was used on the
HUAWEI Mate 30 Series. It is also inspired by the concept of stage lighting – when you hold it in different lights, you’ll see
three beams of light reflected from the bottom.
Its front camera only pops up when you need it, and is designed to be very fast and flexible. The front camera is a 16MP
lens fitted with an f/2.2 aperture, great for capturing selfies in everyday life.

The quad camera on HUAWEI Y9a includes a 64MP main camera (f/1.8 aperture), an 8MP 120° Ultra-Wide Angle Lens
(f/2.4 aperture), a 2MP Depth Lens (f/2.4 aperture) and a 2MP Macro Lens (f/2.4 aperture). This combination can meet
consumers’ needs for shooting in various scenarios. The image quality is excellent.

Both the actual sensing speed and accuracy is very high. On the top of the phone there is a 3.5mm headphone jack.


Download various apps through AppGallery and Petal Search

Besides for hardware configuration, consumers might be concerned about software accessibility on Huawei
smartphones. This is not a worry with AppGallery; users can download most popular apps including Lazada, PUBG
Mobile and other popular mobile games.

You can also use Petal Search, which is listed on AppGallery and can be added to the homescreen as a widget, to quickly
search and download the apps you want, easy and straightforward.
Overall, this MediaTek Helio G80-based smartphone really stands out in terms of design, gaming performance,
photography, battery life and more. What’s more, it is pleasing to the eye and comfortable to hold. Retailing at an
amazing price of PKR 43,999/- only.
