Huawei’s sub-brand Honor was earlier reported to the launch the Honor 9 smartphone on June 27 in Germany. However, Huawei has now confirmed via an official poster, that the smartphone will be launched on June 12 in China.
The poster roughly translates “Beautiful and Colourful”, which could simply mean that the smartphone will come in different colour variants. To recall, the successor to Honor 8 is reported to come in Black, Blue and Light Purple colour options.
The Honor 9 is reported to come in three variants and now a new leak has revealed the pricing of the upcoming device. To start with, the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage variant will be priced at Yuan 2499; the 6GB RAM with 64GB storage variant will come with a price tag of Yuan 2899, and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage variant will be priced at Yuan 3399.
Recollecting some rumours specifications, the device is reported to boast a 5.2-inch Full HD display and will be powered by the latest Kirin 960 processor. On the camera front, the phone is reported to boast a dual rear camera setup, which consists of 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel sensors. For the front, there might be an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. One could expect a 31000mAh battery as well on the Honor 9.
The smartphone was earlier reported to ditch the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack with USB Type-C port and previous leaked images reveal that the phone will feature a front-facing fingerprint sensor, which could also means that it will ditch the ‘Smart Key’ feature, which was present in ‘Honor 8’, wherein the fingerprint scanner was placed on its back panel and the home button doubled up as a smart key to click picture or to launch any app.
