Huawei launched its mid-range Y9s last year as the rebranded version of the Honor 9X Pro in several markets. While the Huawei model shared all its specifications and design with the 9X Pro, it shipped with a dated Kirin 710F chipset instead of the new Kirin 810 7nm processor seen on latter. The key highlights of the Huawei Y9s include a pop-up selfie camera and 48-megapixel triple rear cameras.
