A recent photo leak reveals that the company decided to ditch the headphone jack, if the photos are credible, of course. According to the leak, the Honor 9 will come with a dual rear camera setup, the same as the Honor 8.

Another change should be the position of the fingerprint sensor. Leaked images reveal that the fingerprint sensor should now be embedded in the home button, which is the same move that the company did with the Huawei P10.
