Huawei, Honor, HTC and more: new smartphones before Christmas


The Christmas business is approaching, and many manufacturers are re-positioning themselves with new smartphones. For example Motorola with the flip phone Razr (2019) or Gigaset with GS290, which is manufactured in Germany. Even more: If you're interested in the Fairphone 3, you can buy it from November 19th for just under 450 euros too at Vodafone. And already released a few weeks ago, the Honor 9X is finally available in Germany – for 299 euros, for example, on Amazon.


Huawei Y9s

If you're looking for a cheap mid-range smartphone, Huawei has launched the Y9s again. And this not only looks better with a Notch display than the "normal" Huawei Y9 (2019), but it also has more power. At the heart of the Huawei Y9s is the Kirin 710F processor with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Depending on the variant of equipment, the Y9 (2019) has a maximum of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage.

Based on Android 9 (EMUI 9.1), the Y9s also delivers a barely 6.6-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels. The battery has a capacity of 4,000 mAh. Unfortunately, NFC is not on board, and Bluetooth is only available in version 4.2.

The real smart phone experts will know right now that this equipment can be found in a very similar form to the Honor 9X. That's right! However, the Huawei model is currently available in different countries for less than 250 euros and is therefore cheaper than the Honor 9X in this country.

It is installed here as a central processing unit for the Kirin processor 810. Depending on the variant of equipment, 6 or 8 GB of RAM can be used in addition to 128 GB of storage. A triple rear camera (48 + 8 + 2 megapixels) is complemented by a 32 megapixel front camera.
