#TheNewHUAWEIY9s: Get More Enjoyment From Mobile Photography With A48MP AI Triple Camera

Published

on

Today, Huawei officially launches the HUAWEI Y9s, a new entry-level smartphone for the second half of 2019. To meet consumers’ diverse demands, the HUAWEI Y9s launches with impressive features including a pop-up camera and a 6.59-inch FullView Display, giving the user a truly borderless viewing experience. Crafted with flagship-level quality, HUAWEI Y9s uses stylish colours and unique textures to present a truly attractive handset.

The standout feature is an ultra-wide angle, AI Triple Camera with a 48MP Main Camera for outstanding photographic capabilities. Inheriting Huawei’s technological strength in low-light photography users can take high-quality photos with sharp details. With these remarkable features, the HUAWEI Y9s offers excellent performance and user experience in the entry-level smartphone segment.

Explore the Enjoyment of Photography in Everyday Life

Demonstrating Huawei’s expertise in producing quality smartphones for younger consumers, the new HUAWEI Y9s maintains smooth performance and long battery life while continuing Huawei’s advantages in photography. It improves camera performance through hardware and software integration, giving users new ways to capture wonderful moments in their everyday life.

The HUAWEI Y9s is equipped with an AI Triple Camera setup, which comprises an ultra-clear 48MP Main Camera, an 8MP Ultra Wide Angle Camera and a 2MP Depth Camera. The 48MP Main Camera features a 6 Plastic (6P) lens with a large aperture of f/1.8, which effectively increases the quality and clarity of images. Users can take great photos with sharp details without the need for touch-ups.

Additionally, the 8MP Ultra Wide Angle Camera offers a 120-degree field-of-view for photo and video shooting, almost doubling the viewing angle of 78-degree that traditional lenses can offer. Whether shooting natural scenery, urban architecture or a group photo, a wider field of view gives you more opportunities to record your story. The 2MP Depth Camera helps with background blurring to create professional bokeh effects, making portraits more vibrant.

In addition to its powerful hardware, the HUAWEI Y9s also uses AI algorithms to enhance images. The built-in Multi-Frame Noise Reduction powered by Huawei’s AI algorithms allows long exposures of up to six seconds during handheld photography, helping users shoot improved night photography without fear of, red-eye, blurring or noise caused by long-exposure. Moreover, with AI Scene Recognition, the HUAWEI Y9s can quickly identify 500+ scenes such as ancient architecture, food or sunrises and sunsets. It can then optimise the portrait and background of the photo for different scenarios.

The rear Triple Camera allows users to capture clear photos, while the front pop-up camera is designed to snap beautiful selfies. The HUAWEI Y9s comes with a 16MP front camera paired with remarkable AI algorithms to enrich portraits with flare effects, AI Backlit Imaging and new AI Beauty for the ideal selfie.

Quality Build 6.59-inch Ultra FullView Display with Stylish Colour Design

Instead of a notched or punch hole design, the HUAWEI Y9s uses a pop-up camera to provide a clean, true FullView Display experience. A Micro-Seam Earpiece is embedded in the top bezel, while a hidden ambient light sensor is installed at the bottom of the display. Compared with the previous product (HUAWEI Y9 2019), the HUAWEI Y9s features thinner top and bottom bezels to get a high screen-to-body ratio of 91% and maximise the viewing area.

The HUAWEI Y9s sports a 6.59-inch negative LCD FullView Display that offers a palette of 16.7 million colours. With a screen resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, 1500:1 contrast ratio as well as a wide colour gamut of 85% (typical value), the FullView Display brings out the sharp, fine details and make colours vibrant. The device also provides professional Eye Comfort Mode, which passed TÜV Rheinland’s low blue light certification, helping to alleviate eye fatigue over time.

Additionally, the HUAWEI Y9s adopts a side-fingerprint solution, which combines the power button and fingerprint unlock button so users have one button for multiple purposes. This design ensures the integrity of the front and back panels, while providing unlock speeds are lightning fast. Made of glass and polished with a nano-texture process (Breathing Crystal only), the back panel of the HUAWEI Y9s interprets the dynamic changes of lights and shadows.

High Performance, Large Storage and Big Battery

The HUAWEI Y9s is powered by the Kirin 710F chip, a high performance, low power consumption processor which ensures a fast and smooth user experience, effectively improving the battery life.

Compared with the Kirin 659, Kirin 710F provides roughly 75% better single-core performance and around 68% improved multi-core performance in CPU. For GPU, it also doubles the power efficiency and delivers 1.3 times higher performance.

Additionally, the HUAWEI Y9s supports UFS2.1 Dual-channel Storage technology and Huawei’s Extendable Read-Only File System (EROFS) to bring better read and write performance and more efficient storage, releasing more space for the phone to run heavy-duty applications.

The HUAWEI Y9s provides a large battery of 4000mAh (typical value), along with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM with expandable 512GB storage (sold separately). Available in Midnight Black and Breathing Crystal. The HUAWEI Y9s will be available for Pre-Order starting from 9th December – 15th December. Pre-order the HUAWEI Y9s and get the HUAWEI Band 4e for free.

This is the cheapest 256GB smartphone that comes with 8GB RAM

Published

on

By

We have found memories of the Elephone Soldier, a rugged smartphone that sported a rather unique analogue compass and a price point that earned it some top marks in reviews around the world. 

Elephone now has a new flagship, the U3H, and although it may not have the same rugged credential as its sibling, it more than makes up for it elsewhere.

At $184.89 (about £142, AU$268) after using an exclusive couponat AliExpress, the Elephone U3H is the cheapest smartphone that combines 256GB storage with 8GB of system memory, as much as some flagship laptops on the market.

You can bag yourself an Elephone U3H for a rock-bottom price of just under $185, which includes free delivery and a $6 new user discount. This is an mid-range smartphone running Android 9.0 (upgradable to 10), with 8GB of RAM, a 48-megapixel camera, 256GB onboard storage and a massive 6.6-inch, 3.7-megapixel screen.

Elephone U3H

There’s also two rear cameras including a 48-megapixel one from Sony, the IMX586, a rather big 6.53-inch FHD+ display and a not-so-small 3,500mAh battery.

Add NFC and wireless charging and you get a device that, on paper, is difficult to beat if storage is what you’re after. It currently rocks Android 9.0 but the manufacturer has confirmed that it will get Android 10 in a few weeks.

As a disclaimer, buying from Chinese retailers like Aliexpress means that you may have to wait a long time to get your item, up to two months.

There’s also a slim chance of getting stung by extra charges and products from China may not be 100% compatible with local voltage or mobile network bands, with returns often a pain to complete.

Apple iPhone 12: Everything We Know So Far [Updated]

Published

on

By

Apple’s iPhone 12 is already subject to leak after leak after leak. As such, this article will roundup everything we know so far. There’s a lot to love and some disappointments as well. But, overall, Apple is heading for its most exciting iPhone upgrade in years. Here are the reasons why. 

Apple iPhone 12, 5G iPhone, new iPhone upgrade, iPhone 12 release date, iPhone 11 upgrade,
2020 iPhone 12 conceptBEN GESKIN

 Camera – the headline news for the iPhone 12 is Apple’s move to integrate a long-range 3D camera. This has now been leaked by multiple sources and it will enable the iPhone 12 to actively map its environment up to about 15 feet. It will be laser-based unlike the 25-50 centimetre range of the dot projector-based 3D mapping system used in Face ID on the front of current iPhones.

While a 3D camera may help photographs with things like Portrait mode (where depth measurement is a major factor), the big win is augmented reality (AR). Expect Apple to make a big deal of this come launch time.

Design – Perhaps the one area where the iPhone 12 may disappoint is how it looks. With more radical concepts (as above) seemingly off the radar, a far more basic design (almost identical to the iPhone X / XS / 11 Pro) has now been spotted. There is still time for this to change, but Apple looks set to make its biggest advances internally this year. 


Gordon’s Top Apple Daily Deals:

Display – While it may look the same, the new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max family is understood to be tweaking its screen sizes with both bigger and smaller panels:

  • iPhone 12: 6.1-inch (same as iPhone 11)
  • iPhone 12 Pro: 5.4-inch (Vs 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro)
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G: 6.7-inch (Vs 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max)

In addition to this, Apple is expected to introduce new 120Hz ProMotion displays. Jumping to a 90/120Hz panel is essential to keep up with rivals, many of which made the move in 2019 and Samsung will fit the Galaxy S11 with a 120Hz panel in 2020. Coincidentally, Apple will also adopt Samsung’s Y-OCTA display technology for slimmer panels and OLED may come to the entry-level iPhone 12. 

Adding to this, Japanese site MyDrivers is reports that Apple will source up to 45M OLED panels from China’s BOE as it reduces dependence on Samsung. Whether this results in good/bad iPhone editions as with Intel/Qualcomm modems in the past remains to be seen, but Apple’s strict quality controls usually avoid this.

Biometrics – Face ID is not expected to change much in the iPhone 12 other than slight performance tweaks and, perhaps, a fractionally smaller notch. But the return of Touch ID integrated into the display, is a major event which has been leaked time after time. While facial recognition and fingerprint sensors have their own pros and cons, the real value of its return is when used in conjunction with Face ID for extremely high level security. Hopefully, where and when will be user selectable.

Apple AirPods Pro Vs AirPods: What’s The Difference?FORBES Gordon Kelly

01/04 Update: Performance – DigiTimes reports Apple has renewed its exclusive manufacturing deal with TSMC to be the sole supplier of its next-gen A14 iPhone chipset with production beginning as soon as Q2. DigiTimes says it will be the first A Series chip to be manufactured with a 5nm process (A12 / A13 were 7nm) which should both boost performance and increase efficiency. It could also increase Apple’s (already large) advantage over rivals with Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865 flagship chipset for Android phones still using 7nm.

Connectivity / Networking – there is a lot of speculation that the Lightning port will be replaced by USB-C. This remains to be seen as talk is also building that Apple will move the iPhone to a port-less, wireless charging-only model in the next few years. As such, introducing USB-C for a short time would seem pointless. 

More certain, is the arrival of 5G. Apple will introduce 5G across the entire iPhone 12 range. It will deliver support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands and (given the still-limited nature of 5G networks around the world) the really good news is…

Pricing – official prices for the iPhone 12 range have yet to leak but word from Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most accurate Apple insiders, is there will be no significant price penalty for the step-up to 5G. This would be a coup as 5G has added hundreds of dollars to 5G versions of rival phones up until this point. 

Release Date – there’s nothing on this at present, but Apple has a long tradition of launching new iPhones in September and (the early release of one new budget model, aside) I don’t expect that to change in 2020. 

Conclusion

Will the iPhone 12 be worth the wait? On paper, yes. This is one of Apple’s biggest upgrades in years. That said, the lack of external changes for a third generation may put some users off and the iPhone 11 range is already the most well-rounded smartphone line-up of 2019. It is also available with some major price savings right now

After incremental upgrades in 2019, Apple is going for it in 2020 and a big motivation is Samsung’s exciting Galaxy S11 plans. Here’s a similar roundup of Everything We Know So Far about the Galaxy S11

Yes, 2020 is shaping up to a great year for smartphone fans.
