Huawei uses the Honor brand phones as an online-only product line. After witnessing a reasonable amount of success with the predecessor, the Honor 8, it will not be surprising if the Honor 9 achieves the same type of results.

Specifications as revealed so far

The Honor 9 will be a 5.2-inch display smartphone with a display resolution of 2550x1440pixels. The pixel density is an impressive 501. According to the leaked information, the phone will be fitted with an Octa-core HiSilicon Kiri 960 processor and a Mali GPU.

Regarding the RAM, the reports indicate it could be either 4GB or 6GB. It is even possible the company might release two versions. The phone’s internal memory would be, again, 64GB or 128GB. As mentioned, there is every possibility that there may be two phones with different capacities. It will be a dual SIM phone and there is a microSD card slot too, to increase the external memory of the phone.

It will sport the latest Android OS Noaugat Version 7.1.1 with the EMUI skin riding over it. The exact size of the battery to be fitted on the Honor 9 is yet to be ascertained, but it is understood that it would be a non-removable Li-Ion battery with the quick charging arrangement.

But, as indicated the Honor 9 is going to be liked by many for the camera set up it is going to be equipped with. If these rumors and reports are to be believed, the Honor 9 will have a dual camera set up in the rear, with the two sensors being 20MP+12MP; huge by any standards. This being so, there is actually no mentions of the size of the front camera.

Whatever the other details, there appears to be a certainty that the Huawei Honor 9 will be announced on May 27 and it is also more or less certain the phone will debut in Europe from Germany on the June 27.

The price of this new offering might be based on what one saw with the Honor 8 and it might be around $400.
