Honor India has launched their latest mid-range smartphone, the Honor 9N, today, in India. The smartphone comes with a notched display that looks strikingly similar to the Honor 10 and glass back design which resembles the Honor 9 lite.
The Honor 9N sports a 5.84-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. A 2.5D curved glass covers the 19:9 notched display. The screen has a pixel density of 432 PPI and a screen-to-body ratio of 79%. Powering the 9N is the HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. The Kirin 659 comes with an i5 coprocessor which measures real-time steps, distance, GPS location and much more. The phone will receive the GPU Turbo technology as an update in Q4, 2018. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage of up to 128 GB via a microSD card. The phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Huawei EMUI 8.0 on top.
The Honor 9N has a dual camera setup on the back which uses a 13 MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a secondary 2 MP sensor which captures depth information for portrait shots. To the front, the phone comes with a 16 MP selfie camera which has a f/1.8 aperture. The camera offers modes such as Portrait mode, Gender Beauty mode, as well as wide aperture mode. The cameras use Pixel Binning technology which converts 4 pixels into 1 large 2.0um pixel to deliver brighter images in low-lighting conditions.
The Honor 9N packs in a 3000 mAh battery that charges through the micro USB port. It comes with support for 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi- 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, and GLONASS.
