Huawei Honor 9 Goes Official in China with Top-Notch Processor, Camera

June 13, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Among the plethora of devices Huawei has launched under its Honor branding, the Honor 8 device holds a special place.

Not that it came with some stunning specs, but Honor 8 was that one flagship that finally stroked the chords propitiously for the Chinese manufacturers with the Western market, something which the company has been eyeing for quite a long time.

For that matter, the launch of its successor holds some extreme significance, and Huawei appears to have played it cunningly safe. The Honor 9, which was launched in China on Monday, apparently has been crafted to retain all of that have endowed its predecessor.

Huawei hasn’t taken the risk of redesigning the device, and has instead retained the same design and even the shades for the Honor 8 successor. The same metal edges adorn the bezels of Huawei Honor 9, while the front and black too packs the same glass build that was present in Honor 8.

But that said, they haven’t failed to make it a true successor by giving some extra power inside. The heart of the device is the new Kirin 960 chipset, which rakes the best score among the leading CPUS in multiple benchmarks. The processor will be paired with 4 GB/6 GB RAM based on the storage that’s present alongside.

The display also gets a boost with the introduction of DCI-P3 color space. As with the cameras, Honor 9 will come with dual camera setup with a rear combo of 12MP and 20MP sensors. The front cam will house an 8MP shooter.

Huawei Honor 9 will run Android Nougat OS with the in-house EMUI 5.1 layered on top of it. The base model which comes with 64 GB storage is priced at USD equivalent of $300, while the 128 GB device is being launched at a price equivalent to $400. The pricing might change when it comes to the western market, which can be expected soon given the charm of the predecessor device in the same markets.
