How to

Take 48MP Photos with Huawei Y9s

Written by Hassan Abbas

Huawei’s newest Y9s phone is just starting to hit the markets. If you’ve bought one or plan to buy Y9s then use this tutorial to learn how to take full 48MP high-resolution photos. One of the main features of Huawei Y9s is its main 48MP camera. The camera allows sharp, high-dynamic-range photos. It’s a large upgrade over the last 16MP sensor on Y9 Prime 2019. To save space, by default, Huawei Y9s captures photos at 12MP resolution.

In recent phone trends, we’ve seen many brands fit in a 48MP camera module on their new phones. While the higher MegaPixel count surely is beneficial, but brands don’t capture at full resolution. One of the main reasons is, down-scaling delivers practical sharpness and conforms to many standards being used by apps and storage. However, besides disallowing users from taking 48MP shots, here is how to do it on Huawei Y9s.

How to Capture 48MP Pictures with Huawei Y9s

For this procedure, no modification or installation is needed. It is just a matter of finding the right setting and mode.

Step 1:

At first, Open up the Mobile Camera app.

Step 2:

In the bottom, you should be seeing different modes and in the end, there should be More. Simply tap on that.

Step 3:

From the different modes now being displayed find and choose Pro.

Step 4:

Once you enter in Pro mode, Click on the gear icon up top.

Step 5:

Within this menu, you should see a tab for Resolution. Select it.

Step 6:

Now from here, simply tap on 48MP.

That’s all for it! All done! Now, from Pro Mode, you can capture full-res 48MP photos from your Huawei Y9s.
