About 2 to 3 years ago, smartphones with pop-up cameras were quite busy in the market. Although now there are many smartphones with futuristic folding screen designs. However, this does not mean that smartphone manufacturers will not re-release smartphones with the pop-up camera mechanism. One of the smartphone manufacturers that re-released smartphones with pop-up cameras is Huawei. Huawei released a similar smartphone through its mid-range series, namely the Huawei Nova Y9a in South Africa.

Smartphones with pop-up cameras do have their own charms and advantages. In addition to looking sophisticated, the camera can go up and down automatically. Smartphone vendors can release smartphones with full-screen displays. Smartphones become hassle-free from waterdrop notch and punch-hole types though. But that doesn’t mean smartphones with pop-up camera mechanisms don’t have drawbacks. Such as being more susceptible to physical impact and making smartphones unable to have an IP rating certification. Given that the Huawei Nova Y9a comes at a relatively affordable price, the last factor is not a problem.
