Huawei's e-brand, Honor, has announced the launch of its flagship smartphone in China. The company has unveiled the Honor 9, the successor to last year's Honor 8 smartphone. The smartphone features a 5.15-inch full HD display with DCI-P3 colour space similar to iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8. 

The handset is powered by the company's powerful Kirin 960 CPU also found under the hood of Huawei P10, Mate 9 and Honor 8 Pro. The smartphone offers standard 6GB RAM and there is an option for either 64GB or 128GB storage. It also supports expandable storage via a hybrid SIM slot.

Like most recent Honor and Huawei smartphones, the new Honor 9 also sports a dual-rear camera setup. It sports a combination of dual 12MP and 20MP rear cameras with support for 2x optical zoom and portrait mode similar to iPhone 7 Plus. There is also an option for bokeh effects after a picture is clicked. The front snapper is an 8MP one with support for 1080p video recording.

With Honor 9, the Chinese company is also announcing the launch of Huawei Pay, its own contactless mobile payment solution. The smartphone includes connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, WiFi ac, NFC and there is even a 3.5mm audio jack. Like Honor 8, the new Honor 9 sports a metal body with glass back and comes in grey, blue and gold colour options. 

The Honor 9 runs EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat and will be available starting June 16 from Vmall, JD and six other Chinese retailers, notes GSMArena. The smartphone is priced at 2,700 Yuan (approximately Rs 27,000) for the 64GB variant and 3,000 Yuan (approximately Rs 30,000) for the 128GB storage model.
