Huawei is kickstarting the new year of 2017 with plenty of releases regarding Android mobile handsets. Just a few days after announcing the Honor 6X at CES event, two more phones made an appearance at China’s telecommunication equipment certification center, TENAA. The first to leak was the mysterious 5.2-inch Huawei phone with 4GB of RAM and Android 7 and the 5.7-inch Huawei Honor V9 flagship.
The upcoming Honor V9 by Huawei appeared on TENAA bearing the codename of Huawei DUK-TL30, the device later disappeared from the site. Probably Huawei found to be too early for the handset to be exposed. The exposed handset appears with a 5.7-inch touchscreen display featuring a quad-HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, but the Honor V8 also has a QHD version.
The listing is somewhat disappointing. Huawei will be bearing the dual-camera feature with the Honor V9 with two 12MP cameras. Huawei could have landed to the upcoming flagship the 4K video recording support; the main dual-cameras will still be limited to full HD recording. The front-facing selfie camera is also the same 8MP FHD autofocus camera as featured on the Honor V8.
The Huawei Honor V9 (or at least the Honor DUK-TL30) will be running an octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz (probably the Snapdragon 821) with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory (there might be 4GB of RAM versions as well). The flash memory will support extension via microSD up to 128GB, and the handset will be released with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-loading.
Honor V9 will be featuring the top-notch connectivity pickup with a back-mounted fingerprint sensor, measure dimensions of 157 x 77.5 x 6.97 mm, weigh 184 grams (the metal body design makes it a bit heavier), and will be powered by a 3,900 mAh battery.
