Huawei Unveils Big-Batteried Y9 (2018)

Also comes with quad cameras

After several leaks and teasers, Huawei continues to strengthen its mid-range lineup with the Y9 (2018). This new model has near-similar specs to the popular Nova 2i, save for a few differences: With the Y9 (2018), you get a lower RAM and internal storage size, but it makes it up for a sizeable 4000mAh battery.

Aside from those differences, the Y9 (2018) comes with Android Oreo, together with EMUI 8.0.
