Over the last few months, we have seen our fair share of rumors regarding Honor’s latest flagship, the Honor 9. However, all of the rumors have been put to bed as the company took to the stage today to officially unveil the device.

Many of the rumors seemingly got things right, as the Honor 9 features a 5.15-inch Full HD display, while being powered by Huawei’s Kirin 960 SoC and either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. As for storage, the 4GB variant comes with 64GB, while the 6GB variant comes with either 64GB or 128GB. Both options feature a microSD card slot, making it possible to expand the storage up to 256GB.

Keeping with the recent trend of dual-camera setups, the Honor 9 doesn’t disappoint as it features a 12MP and a 20MP rear sensor. Both of these are capable of 2x optical zoom, portrait, and bokeh modes. The front-facing selfie camera also comes in at 8MP and features an f/2.0 aperture.

Other specifications for the Honor 9 include a 3,200mAh battery, to go with the USB Type-C charging port, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Finally, the device includes Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 skin overlay on top.

Pricing for the Honor 9 starts at ~$340 for the base model 4GB/64GB variant, and goes all the up to $40 for the 6GB/128GB variant. Honor did not give any hints as to when we’ll see this device come to the States, but it is already available for pre-order in China, with sales to commence on June 16th.
