Well this isn’t a surprise is it? Huawei unveiled earlier today their latest Honor family addition, called Huawei Honor 9 and it surely looks beautiful – to me at least 😉

The new Huawei Honor 9 packs a 5.15” 1080p display, with DCI-P3 color space (also used on the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8), its dimensions are 147.3 × 70.9 × 7.45mm and weighs around 155 grams.

The device boots up on Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top.

It has an impressive dual camera on the back – a combo of 12MP and 20MP sensors – featuring 2x optical zoom, portrait and bokeh modes, along with an 8MP selfie camera in front. It packs a 3100 mAh battery with fast charging support, 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n ac, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and Huawei Pay service compatibility!

    3200mAh battery.

  • I’d like an explanation of why the Honor 9, with its slightly smaller display than the Honor 8 (5.15 vs 5.2) is nearly 2 mm longer/taller than the Honor 8. The same is true of the Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Mi 5 – the new one is longer, not as compact. Must be trying to squeeze more technology into them I imagine. Unfortunately, Samsung has made these long tall Sally’s acceptable to many people, but not to me. However Samsung at least has the excuse of offering a much larger display. So, why is Huawei stretching the Honor 9 when its display is smaller?

    • Ascertion

      Probably since Fingerprint sensor is on the front/bottom instead of on the back. They made up for that by increasing battery size slightly, but top/bottom bezels grew a tiny bit. At this price though, the phone seems very competitive.

      • Faux-News

        Huawei P10 is shorter and less wide than Honor 9. So its not the front finger print.
