The Huawei Y9a has finally been launched in Kenya. The Y9a has been on pre-order in Kenya for about a week. This is the latest from the company and the latest in the company’s Y9 series that has had some good devices over the last couple of years.
The Huawei Y9a is available in stores including Jumia for Ksh 30,999. Those who buy it will get a pair of Bluetooth headsets worth Ksh 2,499.
Just like all the new Huawei smartphones, the Huawei Y9a does not come with Google services but Huawei has replaced that with its own Huawei Mobile services. In addition to this, the phone comes pre-installed with AppGallery in place of the Google Play Store. This is Huawei’s official app store with a constantly growing list of apps, where users can simply browse and download the apps they need.
Speaking of the new device Huawei Mobile Kenya Country Head Jim zhujie said, “ Huawei has introduced its iconic Halo Ring Design to the new HUAWEI Y9a. Inspired by four-point headlights and popularised by the flagship HUAWEI Mate 30 Series design, the sleek square camera arrangement is surrounded by an outer ring engraved through a unique coating process. The symmetrical layout completes a pleasing design with exquisite craftsmanship demonstrating elegance and charm. “
“Young consumers demand a smartphone that excels at mobile gaming, and the Huawei Y9a certainly delivers on that front. Super narrow bezels and the enhanced auto selfie pop-up camera facilitate an unobstructed, immersive viewing experience, allowing you to enjoy a FullView Display whether you are gaming, browsing or watching videos. This stylish and immersive design with 92% screen-to-body ratio is perfect for gamers, ensuring you can play without obstruction.” He concluded
