Honor 9 billed for June 12 release
Huawei and Honor are two sides of the same coin, and the latter is set for the release of their new flagship, the Honor 9. The Honor 9 was initially billed for a late June release but it looks like the company has brought the launch date even closer, with new information pointing towards a June 12 release.
The Honor 8 was released in 2016 to critical acclaim, as it brought flagship performance to the upper mid-range price space. The Honor 9 can be expected to adhere to that tradition, and specifications for the device confirm that.
The Honor 9 will, of course, ship with the Kirin 960, HiSilicon's flagship from late 2016 with performance in the same ballpark as the Snapdragon 821. It will sport a 5.15" FHD display, a front-facing fingerprint reader, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage memory, dual rear 20MP+12MP cameras, an 8MP selfie shooter, and a 3200mAh battery. Solid specifications, albeit slightly lacking when compared to the flagships we've seen this year.
Prices are unconfirmed at the moment.
