Huawei Y9s was spotted on Amazon India a few days ago, and now the e-commerce site has started taking registrations of interest. The ‘Notify Me' button is live on the Huawei Y9s teaser page, indicating that the launch is not too far. The company has begun registrations after the Home Ministry announced relaxation in sale of non-essential goods in orange and green zones across the country. Huawei Y9s is listed as ‘Coming Soon', and to be notified about the price and sale date, users must register via the ‘Notify Me' option.
