Huawei also states that the Honor V9 will be the first 3D modeling smartphone.
The Honor V9 features a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, along with 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of native storage.
So, the Nova lite will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and will be powered by an octa-Core 4×2.1 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 + 4×1.7 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor backed by a Mali T830 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The internal memory will be 16GB, but the device will allow you to expand it with a microSD card, while the battery is non-removable and has a capacity of 3000mAh.
In the camera department, the V9 retains a dual-camera setup. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). The rear camera also gets Phase Detection Auto Focus, Laser AutoFocus, and LED flash.
The company also says that these sensors come with improved black and white sensor, which lets in 3 times more light, and that really help with low light photography enormously. The prebooking starts from today and sale will commence on February 28.
Huawei's Honor sub-brand is known for delivering flagship specifications at a more affordable price than the parent company's own high-end products.
On the imaging front, the Honor V9 sports two 12MP sensors on the back, circa the Honor 8.
The phones are now only available in China starting February 28, but we are expecting announcements for the worldwide version at MWC 2017. The latest model has a 2.5D glass with a large 5.7-inch display.
