As per the listing, the Honor V9 will carry an octa-core processor (probably Kirin 960) clocked at 2.4 GHz at the heart, aided by 6GB of RAM. This rather impressive configuration is likely to give the device the edge over rivals like the Xiaomi Mi6 and such. The 5.7-inch QHD 2K display will deliver a resolution of 2560 x 1440p.

As for the storage, the V9 has 128GB native storage capacity which can be further expanded using a microSD card. Also, carrying forward the trend it started with the Huawei Honor 8 and Huawei Mate 9, the Huawei subsidiary is bestowing the new flagship with a 12MP + 2MP dual camera setup at the back and an 8MP selfie snapper at the front.

Other key specs include a 3,900 mAh battery, 4GLTE/VoLTE, a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. We don’t have the exact release date yet, but you can keep checking this space for further updates.
