Young smartphone users expect their device to boast powerful performance capabilities and be packed with hi-tech features. On top of that, they expect it to be something that they can show off to their friends.
If you’ve been looking to upgrade your teen’s smartphone, you’ll know that finding a device that meets all these criteria is no easy feat. Well, at least it hasn’t been until now. Cue the Huawei nova Y9a.
Recently launched in SA, this smartphone has an 6.63″ FullView display, boasts 40W Huawei SuperCharge, which means the long-lasting battery can be charged to nearly 70% in a mere 30 minutes, and comes with an 8GB smart internal storage engine plus an additional 128GB of storage space.
But of all the Huawei nova Y9a’s awesome features, it’s the camera that really stands out — literally!
This smartphone has a hidden 8MP front camera that speedily pops up when capturing selfies or enjoying a video chat. Not only is this a fun and futuristic design detail, but it’s also eliminated the need for notches on the screen, meaning there's nothing to interrupt your teen's viewing pleasure when watching videos or playing mobile games.
Because Huawei understands that accidents happen, you don’t need to stress about what might happen if your teen accidentally drops their phone when the pop-up selfie camera is open. The minute the phone falls, the camera will automatically be retracted to minimise any damage.
The quad camera on the rear of the Huawei Nova Y9a is equally impressive. It comprises a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera.
All four of these work together to create incredible, professional-looking photographs, no matter the scenario. Your teen can shoot high-res images of up to 9,248 x 6,936 pixels, take wide, expansive shots of landscapes and large groups of people, or get up close and personal with their subject matter to capture those all-important tiny details.
The Huawei nova Y9a can also detect five different shooting modes, including children, pets, sports, flowers and landscapes, as well as more than 10 shooting scenarios, such as playing, jumping and cycling. These features allow the device to intelligently predict the subject and nature of the shot to adjust its shutter speed in time. That way, your aspiring influencer will have all the support they need to capture their favourite moments perfectly.
Sleek, stylish and smart, the Huawei nova Y9a is a device your teen will both love using to take photos and videos — and love being seen doing with.
The Huawei nova Y9a is available in Midnight Black or Space Silver and priced at R6,499. Shop it in-store at leading retailers or online at the virtual Huawei Store.
