Huawei has finally announced the Honor 9 and the rumors were somewhat true.
The Honor 9 is powered by Huawei's Kirin 960 processor, the same as the company's current flagship the P10, and comes with 6GB of RAM, which is more than the P10 and Mate 9 have. The device comes in versions with 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card.
The phone also features a 5.15-inch 1080p display and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top.
The Honor 9, as rumored, rocks dual rear camera (12MP + 20MP) with 2x optical zoom. The front camera is 8MP.
Although it was rumored that the company might ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack, that didn't happen, and the Honor 9 does indeed come with a headphone jack.
Other features include a 3,200 mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor on the front of the device, like the P10.
The Honor 9 will be available in three colors - Grey, Blue, and Amber Gold.
It will be available on June 16th, in China, at a price of $400 for the 64GB version, and $440 for the 128GB version of the device.
There's no info when will the phone hit other markets, but it should happen soon.
