Huawei recently failed to partner with AT&T in the US markets. Company hasn’t given up its US dreams though. It’s upcoming budget offering, the Huawei Y9 2018 has been cleared by FCC.
The cell phone bearing model number FLA-LX3 has made its way at FCC Certification. Thanks to them, photos of Huawei Y9 (2018) have been leaked. Looking at these leaked pictures, you can clearly see a resemblance with Honor 7X.
The handset seems to have an aluminum built. The screen is clearly an 18:9 aspect ratio display which should support multi-touch. The top bezel houses front camera(s), earpiece and sensor. The bottom part houses Huawei branding.
Turning the phone to back side, there are dual rear cameras and just beside it is LED Flash. Rumor has it that those are 13MP and 2MP shooters. There is no Leica branding, which is kind of justified due to its budget nature. One can also notice a round fingerprint sensor and Huawei branding at the back.
The Huawei Y9 2018 (FLA-LX3) comes with Hybrid Dual SIM slots which are placed at the left edge. The right side features in Volume buttons and power button. The top edge houses secondary microphone (for noise cancellation) while the bottom edge sports 3.5mm Audio Jack, MicroUSB pro, primary microphone and speaker grill.
