Remarkably, the Y9 Prime (2019) gets a triple rear camera setup, while the P Smart Z makes do of dual rear setup.

The device gets a combo of 16MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP depth sensor modules on the back panel, while the pop-up module on the front side reveals a 16MP sensor for selfies. The front and rear cameras all come with AI-powered features and 3D Portrait retouching. Aside from that, the device has Night Mode, as well as slow-motion videos captured at 480fps.

It has a rear fingerprint scanner, a 6.59-inch full HD+ display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 391ppi pixel density. The phone is powered by octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor, but only now available in 4GB RAM + 128GB of storage variant which can be expanded up to 512GB using microSD card.

It is powered by a 4,000mAh battery and comes loaded with EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie, but there is the likely hood it could get updated to EMUI 9.1.
