The sub-brand of Huawei has launched a new device called as Honor 9i in India at an event in Goa for Rs. 17,999. The device will be going for sale on Flipkart exclusively starting 14th of October. It will be coming in Midnight Black, Platinum Gold, and Navy Blue color variants and features a unibody metal design.
According to us, Huawei has taken this step to compete with brands like Oppo and Vivo who are promoting their devices as selfie expert. In the front, there is an 18:9 ratio 5.9(inch) Full HD Plus Display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The Fingerprint Scanner is present in the rear and the device measures only 7.5mm in thickness.
Huawei Honor 9i is a Dual-SIM handset and supports 4G connectivity as well. It comes powered by Huawei’s own Hi-Silicon Kirin 659 (64 bit) Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.36Ghz coupled with 4GB of RAM along with a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU for Gaming. It offers 64GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 256GB’s via micro-SD card. It runs on Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
The Major highlight of the handset is its 4 Cameras, it packs a Dual 16MP+2MP rear Camera with LED Flash, and in the front as well there is a 13MP+2MP Camera for selfies. Both the rear and front cameras allow you to adjust the focus for portrait images. It runs on a 3340mAh battery.
we do not know if it will reach Spain and Latin America, although its price would surely place an attractive place in the Android catalog, as it costs about 235 euros. We will see if Honor decides to bring it to our markets. For the success of the Honor 9, the company would be hoping to get a similar response on the new device also. The price of Huawei Honor 9i is Rs 17,999 (~$276), which will be available for sale from October 14 these smartphones will be available exclusively on Flipkart. For further updates stay tuned to us.
