A new post published on Chinese microblogging site Weibo by a Chinese leakster suggests the upcoming Honor 9 will feature an upgraded dual-camera setup at the back, similar to the one seen on the Mate 9.
According to the leakster, the Honor 9 will be using a 20MP + 12MP setup at the back, with a 12MP RGB sensor and 20MP monochrome sensor. While the sensors will mostly be identical, the Honor 9 is not likely to use the same Leica-branded optics. As we have seen so far, Huawei has restricted the Leica-branding only to its flagship line.
The leakster has also shed some light on the design of the smartphone. He claims the Honor 9 will be inspired by the Xiaomi Mi 6, possibly sporting a similar curved glass build. We also expect to see some pretty significant upgrades under the hood, but not much is known about the Honor 9’s internals at this point.
The Honor 9 is expected to be announced by the end of June, so we can look forward to a few more leaks to surface online in the coming weeks.
