Speaking on the Y9a, Huawei mobile Kenya country head Jim Zhujie said the company had introduced a “Halo Ring Design” on the new device that was inspired by four-point headlights envisioned on the Mate 30 series. Zhujie further said the rear panel houses a quad-camera setup enclosed in a squarish design that also accommodates an outer ring that was formed by a unique coating engraved inside.
Additionally, Zhujie acknowledged that consumer’s look for a device with great gaming capabilities such as what they’d be getting on the Y9a. the device has slimmer bezels and an impressive popup selfie camera that will delight users.
