Huawei’s next smartphone in the Honor series after the Honor 8 soon to be launched is the Honor 9. Huawei is expected to launch the Huawei Honor 9 later this year. As a recap, the Huawei Honor 8 was very well received by the general audience for the looks of the phone as well as the dual-camera setup the phone had which was very rare last year. The same trend has been continued by the company this year as well and the phone has leaked out showing the device and its details. The Huawei Honor 9 has leaked in Black color and the device looks similar to the last year’s Honor 8. Looking at the image renders reveal a black colored Honor 9 which looks absolutely gorgeous with neatly curved edges and glossy finish.
Yes, the company appears to be bringing the fingerprint sensor to the front. We are not sure if the “Smart Key” feature will remain intact, though. Apart from these, the Honor 9 doesn’t seem to bring any other changes externally. The smartphone also still has the dual camera setup on the back along with laser autofocus and dual LED flash. There’s no details on the internals of the device just yet. However, as a matter of fact, the Honor 9 should bring along incremental upgrades hardware wise.
As for the past, Honor 8 was launched in India last year at Rs 29,999. It comes with a 5.2-inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display, 2.3GHz octa-core Kirin 950 (ARM Cortex-A72 4 x 2.3GHz + ARM Cortex-A53 4 x 1.8GHz) processor and Mali T880-MP4 GPU. Besides, the smartphone has optional storage for up to a 128GB micro SD card. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and offers a customised interface – EMUI 4.1. A 3000 mAh battery is in the phone that claims to deliver talk-time of up to 17.5 hours and standby time of up to 380 hours on 3G networks.
