Huawei eventually brought Honor 9 out of darkness to the public for the first time. The device has been aimed to bridge a gap between the Honor 8 and almighty P10 and will go for sale on June 16 in the Chinese market at initial stages for 2299-YUAN, although those eagerly waiting for the smartphone might see global rollout very soon.
Just like previously launched models, Honor 9 resembles the identical bar design with the other two siblings but comes closer in looks to P10 just gets curved back for more firm grip, it is the specs department where it part ways with the both.
As the name Honor 9 suggest, it is not meant to be an award-winning flagship, in fact, it is no flagship at all, however, one might say it is and no doubt, it should be. Honor 9 Sports a 5.15-inch FHD 1080×1920 resolution display covered in Corning Gorilla Glass. Under the full metal unibody with chamfered edges and glass back, lie an in-house built HiSilicon Kirin 960 Octa-core processor, there is no word on its clocking rate yet, mated with 6 Gigabytes of RAM and 64 and 128 Gigabytes of onboard storage for the user. The device allows external microSD card option at cost of one sim. It will come out of the box running Android Nougat 7.0 wrapped in EMUI 5.1 which is the latest and fastest UI from Huawei. A user may expect Android O update in near future.
The optics are somewhat similar to Huawei P10 with the same 20MP + 12MP dual camera setup with Leica optics and OIS along with laser focus and dual LED flash, not to forget the all famous Bokeh effect. At the front, an 8 MP shooter for the selfie lovers. Honor 9 will be available in three colors i.e. Gold, Blue and Grey.
Officially Honor 9 is to go on sale from June 16 only in the Chinese market but a player like Huawei will not limit its luck only to one country as seen earlier. With a device as stunning as Honor 9, there is hardly any competition in with it in the aesthetics department and that being said, there’s much more to this smartphone than meet the eyes.
