Honor 9 set to go official on June 27


Huawei sub-brand Honor is all set to launch its latest flagship smartphone next month. Reliable leakster Roland Quandt has shared a press invite to the announcement event, which will be held on June 27th in Berlin. Since the smartphone is going to be unveiled in Berlin, it is more or less confirmed that Honor will be launching the handset in Europe as well.

While the press invite doesn’t divulge any significant detail, it does suggest the upcoming flagship will offer significantly improved low-light performance when compared to the Honor 8. Even if it doesn’t quite turn out to be “the light catcher”, you can still expect to see solid camera performance thanks to a new 20MP + 12MP dual-camera setup at the rear.


Based on all the rumors and leaks so far, we expect the Honor 9 to feature a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and a Kirin 960 octa-core SoC under the hood. At least two different memory configurations are expected to be offered – 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Software wise, the smartphone is likely to run on the Android Nougat OS out of the box, with the Honor EMUI 5 custom skin on top.
