Honor, a sub-brand of Huawei has recently unveiled their latest high-end smartphone the Huawei Honor V9 in China. Like the trend of today, it packs a dual camera layout among other various interesting specs. Let’s take a closer look at what is new with this phone.
The Huawei Honor packs a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display with a pixel density of 515 PPI. The phone comes encased in a uni-body aluminum shell which looks damn gorgeous. At launch, Honor showcased three different color variants of the phone- Black, Red and Blue. Under the hood, the phone packs a Kirin 960 processor coupled with the Mali-G71 GPU. The processor is backed by either 4 or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. The internal storage can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. In the software side of things, the phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s own custom skin, EMUI 5.o overlaid on top of it.
In the camera department, the Honor V9 like the current trend sports two f/2.2 12MP rear cameras coupled with a dual-tone LED flash. The secondary rear camera on this phone, just like the one found on the P9, will probably be a monochrome sensor. The V9 also has a f/2.0 front camera for all your selfies. Just sitting below the rear dual cameras is a fingerprint scanner for added security. And finally powering the device all up is a 4000mAh battery non-user removable battery. This will be more than enough to get users through a full day of moderate to heavy usage without any issues. There is also the inclusion of USB Type-C and fast charging capabilities if the phone does run out of battery. The phone as of right now is only available in China for 2,599 Yuan for the 4GB RAM variant and 2,999 Yuan for the 6GB RAM variant that is approximate $377 and $436 respectively.
