Huaweiâ€™s sub-brand Honor has announced its latest smartphone model, the Honor 9N. This phone sports a 5.84-inch full HD+ LCD display that has an impressive screen resolution of 1080x2280pixels.
The notch to accommodate the front camera is provided but is quite small in size. Honor has stuck to its in-house chipset the HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC to be engine driving this new Honor 9N smartphone. There will be two RAM variants, 3 GB and 4 GB. The corresponding storage levels will be 32 GB and 64 GB along with a 128GB variant that is also available for purchase.
A hybrid slot for a microSD card is also part of the specs so that enhancing the memory space will not be an issue. The Android Oreo version 8.0 and Huaweiâ€™s EMUI 8.0 skin take care of the functioning of the device.
While the rear camera setup sees a dual sensor, 16MP+2MP combination, the front camera for selfies has a mammoth 16MP sensor. The fingerprint sensor can also be spotted on the rear panel. The battery power is 3000mAh and the colors in which the Honor 9N can be bought are Lavender Purple, Robin Egg Blue, Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black.
The phone is being sold in India exclusively on Flipkart and deliveries are expected to begin from July 31. The 3GB/32GB variant is priced at Rs 11,999, 4GB/64GB variant at Rs 13,999 and finally, the 4GB/128GB variant comes at a price of Rs 17,999.
After witnessing huge success with the Honor 9 Lite, which sold over a million units in India, the company expects a similar response to the Honor 9N.
"In India, nearly 80 per cent of smartphones are sold in the Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 segment. This is also the segment which has been the most successful for us. The launch of Honor 9N with crisp new display and innovative features will help us further consolidate our position in this segment," P Sanjeev, Vice President, Sales, Huawei India-Consumer Business Group, told IANS.
