Taking pictures with mobile phones has become an essential part of our daily lives. In order to get the perfect pictures, we rely on our skills as well as an excellent camera phone. The Huawei Y9 2019 features both front dual camera and rear dual camera for hardware level Bokeh effect. Most of the phones with single cameras can only achieve the Bokeh effect with the aid of software, while Huawei improves the technology with numerous research and accumulated knowledge.
The primary camera helps to focus while the secondary camera adjusts the distance to simulate DSLR performance, creating pictures with clearer layers and sharper edges. And with the help of AI optimization, you can take professional pictures easily, anytime anywhere in all conditions.
The Huawei Y9 2019 is equipped with the 16MP+2MP front dual camera featuring the Portrait Mode; the front 16MP F2.0 camera can create pictures with 2.0μm pixels even in the low-light environment, to achieve vivid selfie in all conditions.
The device also features 13MP+2MP rear dual camera. The 13MP primary camera is responsible for recording all the details, while the 2MP camera identifies and calculates the distance and works with the F1.8 aperture (50% more light compare to F2.2), so to capture striking details and layers.
The Y9 integrates AI machine learning algorithm which improves with use and creates 22 different category labels including Portrait, Blue Sky, Snow, Ancient Building, Fireworks, Greenery, Cat, Dog, Text, Food, and Car. And with intelligent image identification technology, AI photography helps to select the optimized background and adjusts all the parameters after analyzing the scene (up to 500+ scenarios), so your pictures always look the best. The device also features AI stabilization and Night Mode to create 6 seconds long exposure, to capture all the details and adjust the brightness in the low-light environment;
Photography is also the art of light, and appropriate lighting can add aesthetic effects to the picture. Y9 2019 integrates AI 3D lighting to create different effects such as soft lighting, stage lighting, butterfly lighting and split lighting; and with the beautifying algorithm, you can produce studio-quality portraits in seconds.
The PDAF fast-focusing feature can focus in 0.2s, while the AI technology helps to analyze the object and adjust the shutter speed, enables users to capture the most exciting and beautiful moments anytime with their devices.
Y9 2019 supports new Gesture Control to avoid shaky and blurry pictures or capturing your arm too much in the picture. When the Gesture Control Mode is switched on, users can wave their palm to the camera within 1.5 meters to activate the selfie count-down, and Y9 2019 takes photos within 3 seconds, which makes selfie easier than ever.
The public launch will be done on the 27th October 2018, at Two Rivers Mall and Thika Road Mall, Nairobi, Kenya.
