Everyday photography made easier with the HUAWEI Y9a


Huawei recently just launched the all-new HUAWEI Y9a, which comes with a range of unmissable new features. The HUAWEI Y9a boasts a 64MP Quad camera setup, 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, large storage and a trendy design that adopts the sleek and elegant design from Huawei’s flagship series, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Series, as the rear camera on the back cover sports a Halo Ring design that makes it instantly recognisable. In this article, we cover how the 64MP Quad Camera setup helps you with your everyday photography needs. The HUAWEI Y9a 64MP Quad Camera configuration is surprisingly comprehensive. Adaptable to any number of high resolution, ultra-wide angle, macro, portrait mode, and night-time scenarios, the HUAWEI Y9a has you covered whenever and wherever you want to bring out your camera.

Take poster-quality pics with a 64MP high-resolution camera

The HUAWEI Y9a is equipped with a 64MP Quad Camera setup that comprises a 64MP super high resolution main camera which currently boasts the highest pixel count in the entire HUAWEI Y series. It can achieve a photo resolution of a whopping 9248 x 6936, nearly double that of an 8K TV (7680 x 4320). One of the great things about having a high pixel count is that the picture can be continuously enlarged and details still come out in crisp definition, giving you the maximum freedom to edit, enhance and more. In fact, the camera can directly produce poster-quality images, which requires activating the HUAWEI Y9a HIGH-RES mode in the camera menu. The HUAWEI Y9a is also great at getting those dynamic shots. We often like to capture moments of our pets bounding around, street scenes with our friends, even just a fleeting moment from a car window, or flowers and windmills in the breeze. However, it is easy for the photo to end up blurry and ruin your shot. The HUAWEI Y9a uses AI algorithms to intelligently predict the subject and state of the shot to automatically adjust shutter priority or delay to improve how the photo is captured. This feature results in clear, defined images.

High sensitivity night shots for great selfies too

Without sufficient light, smartphones can end up taking photos that are almost pitch black. Huawei’s accumulated expertise in night photography can be seen on the HUAWEI Y9a. The main camera uses a 1/1.7-inch sensor (f/1.8 aperture) which ensures enough light intake to shoot in low light conditions or even at night. AI algorithms are then used to reduce noise captured from multiple frames and enhance the brightness and clarity of the image. The HUAWEI Y9a also supports a high sensitivity of up to ISO 51200. With AIS Night Mode 2.0 enabled, the smartphone can deliver even in such darkness that your eyes can’t see your hands. For this reason, the HUAWEI Y9a really stands out in terms of night-time photography.

Ultra-wide angle and macro lenses gives you room to experiment

The HUAWEI Y9a Ultra-Wide Angle lens reaches a field span of 120 degrees and supports wide-angle video recording. The broad field of vision produces a more impactful photo effect. At the same time, its AI algorithms correct the distortion that normally crops up on the edges of wide-angle phots, another great benefit of the HUAWEI Y9a. Perfect for urban landscapes, natural scenery and large gatherings, HUAWEI Y9a even comes in handy for vertical photos to elongate your figure. If you want to capture and share up-close, detailed subjects such as plants and flowers, small packaging text on grocery items or even your collection of toys, ornaments or figurines – the HUAWEI Y9a does the job perfectly with its 2MP Macro lens. With a focussing distance of 4cm, your phone can be positioned right up as close as possible to the subject, allowing you to take all kinds of close-up photos with ease. Moreover, do not forget to try out the 2MP Depth lens. With an f 1/8 aperture, the HUAWEI Y9a can produce photos with a background blurring effect, ideal for portraiture.

If you enjoy a vibrant nightlife and love to capture fun moments with selfies the HUAWEI Y9a 16MP front pop-up selfie camera supports AI Beauty and Circular Flash features to illuminate your selfies and videos without you having to adjust all those camera settings, making sharing videos or photos to other social media platforms easier than ever before. The 64MP Quad Camera supports Anti-shake video technology. What does it do? Anti-shake video stabilises recording when filming. Therefore, if you are recording a video of your running pet, rest assured the outcome would be clear, undistorted and stable.

Even with so many features, are you still unconvinced? Well, the new HUAWEI Y9a is also equipped with 4200 mAh large battery and a 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge for swift charging. In addition to 8GB Ram for smooth processing and a large 128Gb internal storage. In terms of display, the smartphone comes with a 6.63-inch high-resolution screen, using an improved pop-up lens to achieve a completely uninterrupted display experience, so the fun of gaming and catching up on your favourite TV dramas is always an immersive experience.

HUAWEI Y9a runs on EMUI 10.1, which is based on Android 10. The user interface comes with a bunch of innovative features such as an upgraded Game assistant, which provides you with an enhanced gaming experience.
