Huawei Y9s is going to be among the most anticipated mid-range device and for good reasons. Aside from the features and Huawei Y9s specifications, one also have to look out for the design of the phone. Reason because, unlike other regular phones, its design and how some of its components are placed is quite different.
We would have talked more about the pop camera of the phone but we won’t as this is no longer news that phone companies are embracing this new technology. We mean, even the Vivo V17 Pro came with a dual pop selfie camera but that does not mean that here is not talking point when it comes to the Huawei Y9s.
The talking point of this phone will have to be how the fingerprint sensor is placed. Most low budget, mid-range and flagship devices have their fingerprint sensor placed at the back or under display. But Huawei decided to place this same sensor at the side of the Huawei Y9s. There few phones that have their fingerprint sensor placed on the power button of the phone.
Simply put, with the right fingerprint, you can easily unlock your phone as you press the power button. The post us about the Huawei Y9s specifications and we have the table of all features of the phone below. But before we get to table, lets get to introduce you to the key features of this new Huawei phone.
