Honor is a brand known for its affordable prices and terminals that generally were a step below that we offer from Huawei, but although this company has grown under the umbrella of the Chinese giant, increasingly makes more clear its independence and Honor V9 is a clear example of this.
Honor is already not half-measures and aims high with Honor V9, a high-end full-scale newly presented in China which could end up calling themselves Honor 8 Pro when you land in Europe soon. Names aside, after some other filtration, we already know all its features officially. This is what gives us the Honor V9.
Honour makes the leap to the QHD and remains faithful to the dual camera
The bet by the FullHD is a constant in the catalog both Huawei and Honor, but in this model allowed go beyond and your screen is measured from you to you with smartphones more pointers on the scene. We speak of a QHD Panel with a 5.7-inch diagonal, configuration which gives 515 points of density and that should provide a visual experience more than satisfactory.
In the section on cameras, Honor maintains its commitment to double cameras with a pair of 12-megapixel cameras, one color and one black and white, how already marks the tradition. Front mounted a 8 megapixel camera with lens f/2.0.
Honour has been rather conservative with the design, which has a very classic look. We have a rounded edges and corners aluminum chassis and antenna lines across the back. Behind the usual round fingerprint reader is also.
The main novelty in terms of design is in colors, specifically in the variant in tone deep red that you can see in the first picture. Also available in Black, dark blue and pink gold, Although it remains to be seen if when you get to Europe also brings the same tones or bet by a different palette.
Honor V9, technical specifications
If we lifted the hood of this Honor V9 we have a processor mark Huawei, and not any one. It is of the HiSilicon Kirin 960 eight-core, which is in this case also accompanied of 6 GB of RAM.
For internal capacity, Honor will offer the V9 versions of 64 or 128 GB, both are expandable with MicroSD. In the section of the software scores somewhat with Android 7.0 Nougat series and Emotion UI version 5.0.
Returning to the beginning, the integration of a panel QHD is a delicate point in the face of the battery. In fact, it is one of the reasons why many brands maintain panels FullHD, including Honor so far. To not pinch your fingers, the V9 Honor assemble a battery of 4000 mAh that should provide a good autonomy
