Huawei is not done with releasing new phones this month. Actually, they just started! If the flagship, P10, is expected to make its debut at the end of February, during a special event at MWC 2017, the Honor family will also expand, as a new model, dubbed the Honor V9, will be announced on February 21, in Beijing.
A poster of the event was spotted on Chinese social network Weibo, showing Olympic Swimming champion Sun Yang, meaning that he will be the endorser of the Honor V9. Also, a symbol on the same poster reveals that it will sport a dual camera setup on the back, just like the manufacturer’s upcoming flagship.
Earlier this year, the Honor V9 appeared on TENAA, giving us the chance to see what we should expect from it, in terms of specs.
To be more specific, the smartphone, with the model number DUK-TL30, will come with a 5.5″ 2K display, being powered by a 2.4 GHz octa-core processor, which will most likely be Huawei’s own Kirin 960. Besides this, it should be available in two variants, one with 4 GB of RAM and one with 6 GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity will be the same, 64 GB.
As mentioned above, we’re looking forward to seeing a dual-camera setup, with two 12 MP sensors, while the selfie department will be represented by an 8 MP shooter.
Finally, let’s not forget about the Honor V9’s massive 4,000 mAh battery, with fast charging support and the operating system, which will be Android 7.0 Nougat, customized with EMUI 5.0.
The handset should have a price tag around CNY 3,000.
