Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Price in Nepal: Rs. 29,990
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a refresh of the Y9 2019. It has the same processor as the Huawei Y9 2019, Honor 8x and the newly launched Honor 20 Lite. The performance of Kirin 710 is decent, but the Snapdragon 660 does churn out slightly more performance. However, the Kirin 710 is more efficient processor than the SD 660.
Y9 Prime 2019 does look more premium because of the new gradient finish which is slightly tweaked to make it stand out. Plus, now it has a pop-up camera that enables borderless display. Thus, consumers should be attracted towards the Y9 2019. Also, the price seems to be quite good as it stands cheaper than the recently launched Honor 20 Lite.
It features a triple camera setup this time but we can only know how it performs when we test the device.
