Huawei has officially launched the new Honor 9 smartphone. Just like its predecessor, the new Honor 9 comes with an even more powerful hardware specification but at an affordable price tag. Physically, the device looks a lot like its predecessor, the Honor 8. The device comes with a same dual-camera setup on the rear, the same stunning blue color as well as the same metal edges.

The device also sports a 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel dual rear camera along with the 8-megapixel front snapper for selfies. Keeping the power on is a 3,100 mAh battery with fast charging support. Other features are 4G VoLTE support, NFC, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and Huawei Pay service compatibility.
The Huawei Honor 9 dimensions are 147.3 × 70.9 × 7.45mm and weight is around 155 grams, making it taller, thinner, narrower, and heavier compared to Honor 8. More so, the Honor 9 is said to powered by Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top, and it's most likely that the device will receive the Android O update.
