The one unique feature of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is its pop-up selfie camera. With this, the company has eliminated the notch on the display, something that will be appreciated. Huawei says that the pop-up mechanism has been thoroughly tested for 100,000 pop-ups and retractions without any damage. This is more than enough for most people who may have been worried the pop-up mechanism is not reliable.
