Huawei Shows Off the Honor 9, But U.S. Support Limited
Huawei today provided an in-depth look at the Honor 9, the top handset for its Honor brand. The Honor 9 picks up where the Honor 8 left off last year thanks to its curved glass and aluminum frame. The phone has a polished, mirror-like finish that resembles that of the new HTC U11. The phone comes in blue ice, glacier gray, and midnight black. The Honor 9 has a 5.15-inch full HD display and it is powered by Huawei's Kirin 960 processor with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Like some other Huawei handsets, the Honor 9 features a dual camera array on the rear. The main rear camera has a 12-megapixel sensor and it is aided by a secondary 20-megapixel sensor to help with contrast and exposure; the higher-resolution sensor also provides 2x zoom. The user-facing camera has an 8-megapixel sensor. The phone can capture up to 4K video. The Honor 9 includes standard connectivity options, such as Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and WiFi. Other features include USB-C, 3.5mm headset jack, fingerprint sensor, and a 3,200mAh battery. The phone runs Android 7 with Huawei's EMUI 5.1 on board. As for LTE, the phone supports a limited number of LTE bands, including 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 38, 40, and 41. This means it will not be able to access LTE service on most U.S. carriers. The Honor 9 goes on sale in Europe this summer.
