Written by Hassan Abbas

This month, Huawei released a new member within the Y series, the new Huawei Y9s. Fortunately, we have received our unit and here we will be sharing the complete unboxing experience as well as our first thoughts about the phone. The brand enjoyed huge success with Y9 Prime 2019. They’ve decided to launch a new and refined phone. Being priced just marginally higher than Y9 Prime 2019, Huawei’s Y9s are looking to be the best option for the budget to mid-range phone buyers.

The latest Y9s phone comes with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of standard storage and a large 6.59-inch display. Major key aspects for this phone include the amazing display, 48MP rear main camera sensor — an improvement over Y9 Prime 2019’s 16MP module. Also, the fingerprint sensor has been moved underneath the power button.

Huawei Y9s Unboxing Experience

As it follows the same, standard packaging as Huawei’s other phones. The box carries a phone’s display at the top. The other sides are mostly empty and the bottom carries information such as storage, RAM capacities along with which color the phone is.

The top half is easily removed to disclose Huawei Y9s itself. When removing the plastic protective covers from the phone, we notice that the back chassis is made of glass. In addition, the seamless back with just the camera bump is something we have rarely seen from recent Huawei phones. Our unit is painted in Midnight Black but users can also opt for a brighter Breathing Crystal color option.

Standard Accessories:

The remaining box contain standard accessories that include a SIM eject tool, a clear silicon case, 10W USB Charger, USB Type-C cable and lastly 3.5mm headphones with a microphone. It is important to note that there is a clear screen protector applied to the phone straight out of the box.
