Honor just added three new members to its Honor 9 line in Russia with the 9C, 9A and 9S. All three come with modest specs, large batteries and attractive price tags.
The Honor 9C is built around a 6.39-inch HD+ (1560 x 720 pixels) IPS display with a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner for the 8MP selfie cam. The spec sheet features a lot of similarities with the Honor Play 4T including a 48MP main camera with autofocus but the 9C also boasts an 8MP ultrawide shooter alongside the 2MP depth helper. The back also houses a fingerprint reader.
Under the hood, we have the Kirin 710A chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which is further expandable via the microSD slot. The phone boots Magic UI 3.1 on top of Android 10 and does not feature Google Mobile Services which have been replaced with Huaweis HMS suite. The battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and the phone also comes with NFC.
The Honor 9C is available for pre-order in blue and black colors for RUB 12,990 ($175/162). Official sales are scheduled to start on May 4.
The Honor 9A brings a 6.3-inch display with a 1600 x 720 pixel resolution and a waterdrop notch for its 8MP camera. Around the back, we find a 13MP main shooter and a 5MP secondary snapper. Under the hood, the Honor 9A comes with the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC alongside 3GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
The device also packs a large 5,000 mAh battery, NFC and a fingerprint reader around the back. The software front is covered by Magic UI 3.1 on top of Android 10. Its already up for pre-order in black, blue and green colors for RUB 10,990 ($150/138).
The Honor 9S is the most affordable out of the three new phones. It comes with a 5.45-inch panel with a 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and a 5MP front-facing camera. The back features a single 8MP main camera with autofocus alongside an LED flash housed in a rectangular cutout.
The Helio P22 sits at the helm aided by 2GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The battery comes in at 3,020 mAh. The phone boots Magic UI 3.1 on top of Android 10. Pricing starts at RUB 6,990 ($95/87) with a choice of black, red or blue colors. Official sales tip-off on May 4.
