Huawei sub-brand Honor has now confirmed that Rather than the initially Theorized Honor 9i or Honor Play Which May be rebranded as Honor 9X, It’s set to Start the Honor 9N at India on July 24.
The Chinese manufacturer has showcased the rear panel of the approaching handset that sports a double rear camera setup plus also a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. Last week, Honor sent invites to get a launching event where it is set to start the new version. The handset is expected to be the rebranded version of the Honor 9i (2018) that has been launched in China last month as an upgrade of the first Honor 9i which debuted in India in October last year.
The official Honor India Twitter account on Monday posted a couple of teasers together with hashtag #Honor9N to validate the moniker of the upcoming model. “Beauty is not what meets the eye but a character that is about us! Get ready to watch beauty like never before at the grand launching of #Honor9N on 24th July!” The company tweeted. Notably, the same tweet contained a short video which shows the rear panel of Honor 9N that includes the double rear camera setup together with an LED flash module and a fingerprint sensor.
The following tweet published by Honor India indicates an enhanced camera experience throughout the Honor 9N – using hashtag #NoOrdinaryBeauty. This implies an upgraded set of 2 image sensors at the trunk and a large sensor at the front. The brand may also include some artificial intelligence (AI) endorsed features.
If we believe some prior reports, Honor 9N might be the Indian version of the Honor 9i (2018). The handset was started in China with a cost of CNY 1,399 (approximately Rs. 14,400) for the 64GB storage version, whereas its 128GB storage option is available in the country at CNY 1,699 (approximately Rs. 17,500). Underneath the hood, there is an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC, coupled with Mali T830-MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The handset includes a dual rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. A 16-megapixel detector can be accessible at the front using a beauty mode.
The Honor Play has a back camera set up with a 16-megapixel primary detector along with an f/2.2 aperture and PDAF plus a 2-megapixel secondary detector with an f/2.4 aperture. For selfies, the handset includes a 16-megapixel sensor at the front with an f/2.0 aperture. The version has 64GB of onboard storage and packs a 3750mAh battery.
