Despite this, the feature is still better than most smartphones. The device is available for pre-orders on V-mall platforms from next month onwards. It also comes with a metal bezel and ceramic fingerprint sensor at the bottom.
The Honor 9 also has a dual-lens camera, with a 20MP monochrome lens and a 12MP colour one combining to take richer, more detailed photos. In an interesting bit of marketing speak, Huawei says the Honor 9 "will empower the millennials to explore and enjoy the world". The device is powered by a 2.4GHz HiSilicon Kirin 960 octa-core (4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 and 4×2.4 GHz Cortex-A73) processor coupled with Mali-G71 MP8 GPU to handle the graphics. We've seen this chipset stuffed inside loads of Huawei and Honor phones now, including Huawei's own flagship devices, the Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus. Later this year, you can expect to hear more about new devices that will be available in the U.S. It has curved 2.5D glass edges on the front of the phone and full 3D glass edges on the rear and the result is a phone that, straight out of the box, looks like something you've spent £600-plus on, not less than £400.
Huawei today debuted its Honor 9 flagship smartphone that will soon launch in Europe.
In terms of specifications, the Honor 8 Pro features a 5.7-inch QHD display of 1440×2560 pixel resolution. Indeed, this is still the same phone we were introduced to a few weeks back, complete with its dual-lens camera.
Honor may have just announced the bargain of the century - meet the Honor 9.
The Honor 9 throws up no surprises when it comes to the camera tech. Leading the new palette is Glacier Grey, a unique color newly formulated by Honor. Head to our guide on mobile phones with the best battery life to find out which are the longest lasting - and the two laziest.
Expressive portraits can be captured with the main and front camera - with or without bokeh effect.
The Honor 8 Pro is the latest smartphone to join the dual camera bandwagon and thus it comes with a pair of 12-megapixel sensors where one sensor will help capture images in RGBw while the other sensor will capture details in monochrome.
