Honor 9N: Specifications and features
Design-wise, the device has a striking resemblance to the Honor 9 Lite. The glass front and back sandwich a delicate aluminium frame, although a glossy rear makes it prone to smudges. The handset sports a 5.84-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) 19:9 display with a ‘notch’ above the screen, similar to the Honor 10.
Inside the 9N is a Kirin 659 processor which is said to be perfect for web browsing and multitasking. This is backed up by either 3GB or 4GB RAM, and Honor claims the phone’s 3000mAh battery will easily last through a day on a single charge. Honor 9N will be made available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage capacities.
The handset’s dual camera on the rear, which has a 13MP primary sensor, with LED flash, with a secondary 2MP sensor for measuring depth, has been designed to work well in low light. On the front, you will find a 16MP camera for taking selfies. The handset runs on EMUI 8.0 which is based on Android 8.0 Oro.
Honor 9N will be pitched as a competitor to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro, which has been a popular smartphone ever since it made its debut in February. The latter phone is priced at Rs 14,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant, and it goes up to Rs 16,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant.
