The brand new Y9 2019 which toes the line of its Y line of smartphones, is a mid-blend of its top flagships and budget devices. It offers great specs at almost half the cost of a premium Huawei device without compromising on key specs.
In an event held on November 8, 2018, at the Tang Palace Hotel, Huawei Ghana announced it surpassed its target of 500 pre-orders hitting a high of over 2000 pre-orders for the device. And this can be contributed to a well planned and implemented marketing strategy lead by the Marketing Manager for Huawei Ghana, Dennis Fixon Laryea.
