Huawei Teases Pop-Up Camera Smartphone Launch In India, Could Be The Y9 Prime (2019)

Chinese manufacturer Huawei is all set to launch its first smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera in India. The company has started teasing the upcoming device on its Twitter handle revealing that the device will be a part of Y-series. It is likely that the device will be the Huawei Y9 Prime (2019) which was launched in Europe as the P Smart Z earlier this year. 

So far, the teaser only confirms the presence of a pop-up camera module. If reports about the upcoming smartphone being the Y9 Prime (2019) are true, we can expect the same specs. 

To recall, the Y9 Prime (2019) features a large 6.59-inch FHD+ display and a dual-tone design like Pixel devices. It is powered by Kirin 710 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The phone sports a triple rear camera setup of 16MP+8MP+2MP sensors. The pop-up mechanism houses a 16MP shooter. The smartphone is backed by a 4,000mAh battery unit and runs Android 9 Pie OS.
