Huawei Announces Its Honor V9 Flagship

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has announced its flagship smartphone for 2017 in China which will eventually make its way to other markets as well. The Honor V9 is goes toe-to-toe with the Mate 9 Pro featuring the absolute best in terms of specifications.

The display employs a QHD 5.7-inch LTPS IPS panel, better than the one on the basic Huawei Mate 9. It sports a metal chassis with a 2.5D glass at the front. On the OS front, the phone comes with Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s EMUI 5.0 skin on top.

Under the hood is the high-end 2.4 GHz Kirin 960 chip with its two quad-core clusters. Covering the memory front is a spacious 6 GB of RAM, and either 64 or 128 GB of storage, expandable via a hybrid dual-SIM slot.

At the back, as expected, sits a 12 + 12 MP dual-camera setup with a monochromatic and an RGB sensor, along with 4K video, LED, and fast laser autofocus. At the front you’ll get an 8 MP f/2.0 sensor.

Connectivity includes a USB Type-C port, 5 GHz dual band Wi-Fi with Bluetooth LE. The Honor V9 will be available in Midnight black, Flame Red, Platinum Gold and Aurora Blue colors. Sales will kickoff by the end of this month, with price starting at $377 for the 4 GB, 64 GB version, going up to $510 for the top-most variant.

      This looks like a very good phone. It definitely sparks my interest! The 6gb 128gb model is what I like! Huawei as far as I’m concerned is on the right path up & coming. The 960 Kirin seems to be a very capable processer! Thumbs up!

      Touchwiz UI? Are you serious brother? Touchwiz is a customized android interface developed by Samsung for its Galaxy smartphones.
      Its like you are asking Samsung to install IOS in their smartphones.

      • No No No i mean only features i don’t know it’s all about Samsung property i just share additional features

    • muhammadbilal

      TouchWiz UI will only slow it down with bad ram management.

      • You mean Samsung have bad ram !

        • muhammadbilal

          No, 3-4 GB ram is more than enough but samsung’s touchwiz is filled with its own bloatware, and gets slower with time as you install more apps until you reset it. Something i never had to do with lg or nexus phones. Though its a lot improved with galaxy s7 but still needs improvement.

    • Arsalan Shah

      Jeez. Half the things you mentioned already exist in ALL Huawei phones such as Accelerometer & Proximity sensors. TouchWiz UI isn’t a feature, it’s a SKIN, owned and developed by SAMSUNG, so unless Samsung buys Huawei, or vice versa, such cannot happen. Lastly, PayPal is an individual company, NOT a feature, NOR ANYTHING to do with Huawei. Either GOP can convince PayPal to enter Pakistan, or PayPal themselves can decide, either of which – if happens, you WILL be able to use PayPal even if you have QMobile.

      Seems like you opened up GSMArena or some website with a Samsung mobile’s features and copy-pasted it without using your brain.

      • I don’t know exactly who is owner of these seners.
        I just want in one mobile that’s it : Thanks for clarificaiton.
