Huawei Y9 2019 specs listed on TENAA, almost same as the Honor 8X

An alleged Huawei Y9 2019 appeared on TENAA a while ago, but we only had the phone’s images to feast our eyes on. Today, there’s more coming from the same body and it’s perhaps what most fans of the budget Y series want to hear.

To confirm that the Y9 2019 is almost here, TENAA has now listed a specs sheet of the phone with just about everything we need to know. Of course, there’s nowhere the listing talks of the Huawei Y9 2019 so to say, but we believe the model JKM-AL00 is actually the successor to the Y9 2018.

Huawei Y9 2019 specs

  • 6.5-inch 19.5:9 FHD+ (2340 x 1080) TFT display
  • 2.2GHz octa-core processor
  • 4GB or 6GB RAM
  • 64GB or 128GB expandable storage
  • Dual 20MP + 2MP main camera
  • 16MP front camera
  • 3900mAh battery
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • 162.4 x 77.1 x 8.05 mm, 173g

From a specs perspective, the JKM-AL00 looks a lot like the Honor 8X. The latter has the same screen size and resolution, memory options, and camera combination. However, the measurements and weight of the alleged Huawei Y9 2019 show that it’s just a hair taller, wider, and thicker than the Honor 8X, but despite promising a slightly bigger 3900mAh battery compared to the 8X’s 3750mAh unit, the Y9 2019 is slightly lighter at 173g compared to 175g of the 8X.

In terms of software, you get the same Android 8.1 Oreo treat, but we still can’t be sure if the 2.2GHz octa-core chipset in the JKM-AL00 is the same Kirin 710 used in the Honor 8X, but it looks likely. Speaking of looks, the same TENAA recently published images of this device and from what we saw, it appears that there’s a second lens on the front camera. This makes sense considering that the specs listing on TENAA says the JKM-AL00 has four cameras, although it only details three of them.
