Honor V9 encroaches flagship territory with octa-core chipset, dual cameras, Quad HD display and more


The Honor V9 is finally official, and boy is it a looker. If Honor started as a premium mid-range brand, the Honor V9 breaks those expectations and picks itself up a proper flagship.

You’ve got the looks, for starters. It’s all metal, and at 6.97mm thin it can slide in and out of any pocket with ease. Coming in Gold, Black, Blue, and Red color options, the device does seem to jump out at you with a degree of boldness.

Jumping inside its guts, we’re treated to an octa-core Kirin 960 chipset, dual-rear 12MP cameras, a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 6GB of RAM, and more.

Honor V9 Specs

  • Display: 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440
  • Chipset: Kirin 960 octa-core
  • RAM and Storage: 4GB or 6GB of RAM + 64GB or 128GB of storage
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Other Features: Fingerprint sensor, Gorilla Glass 3
  • Software: Android 7.0 Nougat + EMUI 5.0

The Honor V9 is coming at you for $377 if you opt for the 4GB RAM + 64GB of storage model. Bump that price to $436 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB option, or go all out for $508 with 6GB of RAM + 128GB of storage. Chinese sales open up February 28th.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
