The Honor 9 has the Kirin 960 octacore2.4GHz processor for better CPU performance and faster graphics processing. The overall performance will depend on which model you go for as it will be released in both a 4GB RAM and 6GB of RAM variant.

Android 7.0 is on board so you get new features such as split screen allowing you to run two apps on the display at the same time.

 

The fingerprint sensor has been designed to secure the phone and has even more features with the ability to lock apps, make secure payments or access PrivateSpace.

 

The standard Huawei Honor 9 has a 64GB user memory with the higher spec version boosting that up to 128GB.

The Honor 9 camera package is not the same Leica camera as on the P10 but it remains impressive with an upgraded dual lens configuration. The 20-megapixel monochrome and 12-megapixel RGB lens combine images for superb detail and Hybrid Zoom offers even more clarity.

 

Camera features include contrast and depth sensing technologies within the 4-in-1 hybrid system for speed and accurate capture.

 

The Honor 9 camera has so many features that make this an excellent phone for mobile photography. Superior low-light capture, two second video capture with each photo and slow motion and time-lapse video are all excellent ways to capture interesting share-worthy images.
