A new Huawei smartphone with the model number JKM-AL00 got certified by TENAA. It is expected to be launched as Huawei Y9 (2019) in China. The device comes with 3D curved glass back body and the design looks very much similar to the Honor 8X smartphone.

According to the listing, the device will be available in Black, Pink, Blue, and Purple color options.
It sports a 6.5-inch IPS display with Full HD+ (2340 × 1080 pixels) resolution.
