Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – and the HUAWEI nova Y9a is something to behold!

Young smartphone users have high demands of their smartphones. They expect their device to boast powerful performance capabilities. They expect it to be affordable. And they expect it to something that they can show off to their friends.

Finding a device that meets all these criteria is no easy feat, unless you turn to Huawei’s brand-new HUAWEI nova Y9a, now available in South Africa.

The latest in Huawei’s range of nova smartphones, the HUAWEI nova Y9a is a real box-ticker. It’s budget-friendly, it’s aesthetically stunning, and it’s jam-packed with some of the most impressive specs you’re likely to see in smartphone of its kind.

Let’s take a look at some of the HUAWEI nova Y9a’s most beautiful physical attributes.

An immersive viewing experience

Every inch of the HUAWEI nova Y9a’s FullView display is used to deliver an immersive viewing experience. On the 6.63-inch screen, Huawei has completely eliminated the notch area by creating a pop-up front camera that only appears when you want to take a selfie.

This novel design is well-regarded as the best implementation of a front camera so far.

The screen also supports 1.67 million colours, a contrast ratio of up to 1500:1, and a resolution of 2400 x 1800 at 397ppi. All of this combines to deliver true-to-life colours and vivid details on an expansive display that must be seen to be believed.

Distinctive Halo Ring design

The HUAWEI nova Y9a adopts the classic Halo Ring design from other flagship Huawei devices. Inspired by four-point headlights, this square camera arrangement is surrounded by an outer ring that is engraved through a unique coating process.

The design looks like the rings that circle the planet Saturn in a way that is sleek, elegant, and unmistakably Huawei.

The Halo Ring encompasses the HUAWEI nova Y9a’s 64MP quad camera, which includes a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 2MP depth lens and a 2MP macro lens.

These four lenses work together to capture sharp, professional-looking images every time. Use the HUAWEI nova Y9a to take exceptional portraits, large group shots and intricate macro photographs.

A side-mounted fingerprint reader

The HUAWEI nova Y9a also features a two-in-one fingerprint reader and power button. With 85% improved sensitivity, it takes less than half a second for the fingerprint reader to unlock your HUAWEI nova Y9a.

It also supports various instructions: a light tap unlocks the device, pressing the button locks the device, pressing and holding for one second calls the voice assistant, and pressing and holding for three seconds turns off the device.

The fingerprint reader’s minimalist design also gives the HUAWEI nova Y9a a more streamlined look.

In addition, with the fingerprint reader being located on the side of the device, the back panel is freed so that it only reveals the striking Halo design in the centre.

Sleek, sexy, and smart, the HUAWEI nova Y9a is a device you’ll both love using and love being seen with. Buy your very own HUAWEI nova Y9a in Midnight Black or Space Silver at the Huawei Store (Online) or at leading retailers for just R6 499.
