The Huawei Honor V9 official features, price and release date revealed


The Honor V9 is yet another attractive smartphone in the lineup that Huawei has to offer. Other highlights of the Huawei offering include its top-of-the-line Kirin 960 processor, the same one powering the Mate 9, and massive 5.7-inch screen which features a QHD resolution and pixel density of 515ppi.

Huawei Honor V9 sports cutting-edge specs.

On the connectivity front, the Honor V9 comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, USB Type-C, NFC, Infrared port, Global Positioning System with GLONASS, and 4G LTE support. These rumors have been confirmed as India Today reported that Honor 8 Lite ditched the dual rear cameras. Photographers might be a bit disappointed that the Nova lite has single-lens 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, but on the bright side, it's got an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The handset supports 4K video recording and it is capable of capturing 3D photos and perform 3D modelling, as claims the company. The phone also has a fingerprint sensor, and comes with a 3,000mAh battery. The 4GB RAM model of the Honor V9 ships with 64GB of native storage, and it costs 2,599 Yuan ($377) in China. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed in the Honor V9, and on top of it there is Huawei's Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0 skin.
