Huawei has added the product page of Huawei Y9s in their Indian website. Y9s is listed in Amazon India as well. This clearly indicates that Huawei was eager to launch their product in India but could’t because non-essential products were not allowed for sale.
With the announcement of lockdown extension, MHA also released a guideline where e-commerce platforms and local shops got the permission to sell their products(non-essentials) in Orange and Green Zone. These permissions are to be valid w.e.f 4th April with some rules®ulations.

But when specifications for Indian Huawei Y9s is out, we can say that it is the rebranded version of Honor 9X with difference in back design.
