Honor 9 global availability announced alongside Honor Band 3

Honor 9 global availability announced alongside Honor Band 3

In terms of specifications, the Honor 8 Pro comes equipped with a 5.7-inch QHD LTPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and has a pixel density of 515ppi. One thing to note, this phone is likely not going to make it to the U.S.so this is for our overseas readers.

There are, once again, two cameras on the rear - a 12MP RGB camera and 20MP monochrome AF lens, offering, bolstered by an 8MP selfie cam.

The main camera is a 12 MP dual-lens affair, while the front-facer is 8 MP. Aimed at those who value excellent quality, an outstanding user experience and incredible price-performance ratio, this new Honor flagship offers a multiplex of features.

When it comes to having the best smartphone available, most of the time we would aim straight for nothing but the top of the line models - and this would definitely include checking out which particular flagship model catches our fancy. Say hello to the Honor 9.

The Honor 8 Pro is encased in a glass and metal chassis, and while there are Midnight Black and Platinum Gold color variants, I can't get over the gorgeous Navy Blue one. From gesture shortcuts to resource management tools, many of these additions are worthwhile and add to the Honor 9's usability.

Last year, Honor held a press event in San Fransisco, announcing the Honor 8 in a full-blown presentation. The handset is now available to buy and yu can find out more details over at Huawei's VMall website. Here was a phone that looked nearly as good as the Samsung Galaxy S7, yet cost less than £400.

Under the hood, the device is running the Kirin 960 chipset and 6GB RAM alongside Huawei's Android skin EMUI 5.1. The company or Amazon is yet to confirm the price at which the phone will be sold but since the device is an improvement on the already available Honor 8, one can only guestimate and suggest the price range.

Memory wise, the Honor 9 comes with 4GB / 6GB of RAM coupled with 64GB / 128GB of internal storage with the option to expand. It features dual hybrid (Nano-SIM + Nano-SIM/ microSD) slot.

Honor designed the Honor 9 with go-getters in mind.

The device is powered by a 3,200 mAh battery (with Huawei's own 9V/2A quick charging) which should be able to sustain up to 12 hours of local video playing.
