If a smartphone upgrade is at the top of your teen’s wish list, now’s the perfect time to indulge them. That’s because the Huawei nova Y9a has just hit shelves in SA.

Everyone knows that teens are notoriously hard to impress, but this youth-focused device does the job with its distinctive design and incredible specs. And you’ll be equally impressed with it because it offers excellent value for money.

Here are some of the noteworthy features that’ll make your teen long to be the first of their friends to get their hands on a Huawei nova Y9a:

Big screen dream

Beautiful to look at and hold, the Huawei nova Y9a features a 6.63" Ultra FullView Display, coupled with a super narrow frame — a design that cleverly maximises the viewing area on screen.

The front camera’s been designed to pop up for selfies and video chats. Not only does this add an element of fun, but it means there are no notches on the screen to interrupt your view when watching videos or playing mobile games.

Quad camera to impress the squad

Speaking of cameras, the Huawei nova Y9a boasts a rear quad camera system that’s the stuff aspiring influencers’ dreams are made of:

  • The 64MP main camera to allow you shoot high-res images of up to 9,248 x 6,936 pixels;
  • The 8MP 120° ultra-wide-angle camera allows you to fit more in a frame and supports wide-angle video recording too; and
  • The 2MP depth camera and 2MP macro camera work together with the main camera to blur the background and highlight the subject, and to capture microscopic details.

As this camera system is backed by advanced AI technology, the Huawei nova Y9a also intelligently predicts the subject and nature of the shot and adjusts the shutter speed accordingly, guaranteeing professional-looking photographs every time.

Powerful with plenty of storage

What’s point in shooting all that awesome content if you have no place to store it? With the Huawei nova Y9a, you get 128GB of storage and the option to increase it with an additional 256GB memory card if you wish.

It comes equipped with an 8GB smart internal storage engine that’s supported with the brand’s high-efficiency data replacement system, cold data storage and data dumping technologies. This means more apps can run smoothly in the background on this device compared with other smartphones in a similar price bracket. 

The Huawei nova Y9a is priced at R6,499. Shop it in-store at leading retailers or online at the virtual Huawei Store.
