Huawei plans to launch the Honor 9 soon. How soon you ask? The answer is quite soon since today the handset surfaced on the Chinese certification site, TENAA’s website. The Huawei Honor 9 has just cleared its certification and thus we can state that the telecommunication behemoth plans to launch it in a couple weeks if not a month.
We can gather a lot of details from the information put up on TENAA, starting with the internal specifications of the handset. Huawei has put a SoC with an octa-core CPU clocked @2.4GHz which is being speculated as the HiSilicon Kirin 960. The SoC is coupled with 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM plus 64 GB of internal storage. The Honor 9 has a 5.15-inch full-HD (1080 x1920) resolution TFT panel based display. On the rear, it is carrying a 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual camera setup while for selfies and video calling the device sports an 8-megapixel sensor up front. To power all this hardware the smartphone has been provisioned with a 3100mAh battery while running a skinned version of Android v.7.0, Nougat.
In terms of the aesthetics, Huawei seems to have played it a bit safe with the front dominated by the display with minimal bezels on the side. The entire front is clad under a layer of 2.5D curved glass while the back is a full 3D glass back. The handset does have what looks like a capacitive home button that might also house the fingerprint scanner since that is not present on the back. The dimensions of the Honor 9 are 147.3 x70.9 x7.45mm while it sits around 155g on the weighing scale. Apart from all this the handset will also feature dual-SIM, dual standby capability. The Huawei Honor 9 is expected to be launched sometime in June and would be priced at ~¥2,299 (~$335) for the 4 GB variant and the 6 GB variant is priced ~¥2,599 (~$380).
