Huawei has finally lifted the curtain off the newest member of its Honor lineup, the Huawei Honor 9, and the numbers in its specsheet are as high as they could go.
The Honor 9 has 5.15-inch Full HD display with DCI-P3 Colorspace (the same one used in the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7), and is powered by a Kirin 960 chipset, the same chip that powers the likes of the P10 and Mate 9. There’s a whopping 6GB of RAM on board, along with 64GB or 128GB of internal storage expandable with a microSD card through a hybrid SIM slot.
For imaging, the Honor 9 makes use of a dual 12MP + 20MP camera setup, and is capable of 2x optical zoom along with portrait and bokeh modes. There’s also an 8MP selfie camera upfront.
Huawei has also announced its own mobile payment solution named Honor Pay, which of course, will be supported by this phone via NFC. The Honor 9 supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and 4G VoLTE. There’s also a 3,200mAh battery to get you through a day’s use without issues.
The Huawei Honor 9 comes in Grey, Blue, and Amber Gold, and has an SRP of around $400 for the 64GB variant, and $440 for the 128GB variant. It will be available in China starting June 16.
