The year 2017, has begun with a bang with the releases of extraordinary flagships! The unique concept of “Large screen, Smaller Body” has been successfully delivered by LG and Samsung with their LG G6 and Samsung S8 respectively.
Although, the very first flagship to release this year from Huawei is Huawei P10 which has received it’s share of glory. While, the markets are flooded with the recent release of $700 flagships, it’s time for some budget friendly high end mobiles. We are expecting that from the Huawei Honor 9.
Speaking of Huawei, the rumors of their sister company’s upcoming Honor 9 has been surfing on the internet recently. There was a leaked image which is also shared on the Chinese social media website weibo.
According to the leaked image, there’s clearly 2 things we could derive from it. First being the fact that, Honor 9 might just be a refinement in terms of design and won’t receive an overhaul change.
Secondly, the image also indicated to a very similar design like the newly released Xiaomi Mi6.
The only drastic change is the placement of the fingerprint scanner. It’s been shifted to the front at the chin, similar to what it’s expensive siblings Huawei P10 and P10 Plus offers.
If this leaked image is true, then Huawei might be planning to take this change forward and make it consistent in all its lineup.
A keen observation on the pic indicates a a tapered edges at the back, similar to the one found on Samsung S series. This would certainly make the overall smartphone even more comfortable to use it one-handed.
There’s no official leak on any other specifications, but it seems Honor is playing it safe by not changing the overall design language. Huawie Honor 9 is expected to keep the display size as 5.2 inches and will come with Full HD Display resolution (1920*1080) protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The smartphone will most likely be powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 960 Octa-Core Processor which also powers the Honor 8 Pro. The processor will be accompanied by the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU and we can expect 4 GB RAM.
The Honor 9 will come with Android Nougat 7.0 and EMUI 5.1 and will offer 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded using the Micro SD card.
So far the details are slim on the Honor 9, we will update more as the release of Honor 9 comes near. Huawei has also launched the Huawei Honor 8 PRO in India for Rs. 29,999.
