- Honor 9
The Honor 9 looks very similar to the Honor 8 and that is a good thing! The design makes the phone look much more high-end than its price bracket and it has an overall premium feel to it.
The Honor 9 comes with a Full HD 5.15-inch display, meaning that the 1,920×1,080 resolution yields a very decent 428 pixels per inch.
The Honor 9 features an in-house Kirin 960 SoC. It is the same SoC used in the Huawei Mate 9 and the Huawei P10. It is an octa-core CPU configuration with four Cortex-A73 cores, clocked at 2.4 GHz and four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. The chip also features a Mali-G71 MP8 GPU.
The primary model comes with 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM.
In terms of the benchmarks, the Honor 9 scored 1868 on Geekbench’s single-core test and 6392 for the multi-core test. As you would expect, these scores are on par with the Mate 9 and the P10. For AnTuTu, the P9 scored 142406, while in Epic Citadel, the device manages 59.0 frames per second in Ultra High Quality mode.
The Honor 9 runs Android 7.0 out of the box, complete with Huawei’s Emotion UI 5.1.
One of the key features on the Honor 9 is the camera. It is a dual sensor setup, with a 20 MP monochrome lens and a 12 MP RGB lens. The idea behind the dual lenses is the ability to deliver better light sensitivity, with the monochrome sensor promising an increase in light capture over regular sensors. 12 MP images are produced by default but there is the option to bump the resolution up to 20 MP.
