Huawei today added a new smartphone, the Honor 9i, to its array of affordable phones. Aggressively priced at 17,999 INR, the Honor 9i includes features like full view 18:9 display and dual cameras on both front and back. The handset will be available on Flipkart starting October 14 in Aurora Blue, Graphite Black, and Prestige Gold colors.
The Honor 9i is a rebranded version of Maimang 6 that was earlier launched in China and holds the same set of hardware. On the front, there is an 18:9 5.9-inch Full HD+ display (83 percent screen to body ratio) with on-screen navigation buttons below it. Huawei has also added the customary 2.5D glass on the display panel.
Above the display, you will find a 13MP selfie camera paired with a 2MP secondary sensor that can be used for adding bokeh effect to images. On the rear, the 16MP primary camera is combined with another 2MP depth sensor, again for Bokeh effect, same as we saw on Honor 6x.
On the inside, the Honor 9i is powered by 2.3GHz octa-core Kirin 659 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The software is Android Nougat based EMUI 5.0. The phone is quite slim measuring just 7.5mm and flaunts a full metal body. Other features include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS / GLONASS, hybrid dual SIM slot, and 3340mAh battery.
“Honor is Huawei’s global e-brand. In India, Honor pioneered dual camera phones over the last 3 years. Our team has spent extensive time studying what consumers in this segment prefer and we have worked to raise the bar each and every time, creating industry’s new benchmarks. Today with the launch of Honor 9i, we have ushered in 4-camera technology which is widely acclaimed for its excellent selfies and low light photography capabilities. We view Honor 9i as a never-before opportunity for consumers who wish to experience an outstanding product.” said P Sanjeev, Vice President Sales, Huawei India-Consumer Business Group.
