Honor launched three new smartphones, adding to the Honor 9 line-up. The smartphones: 9C, 9A, and 9S are currently only available in Russia. All three devices are targeting the entry-level or budget smartphone market. They offer pretty decent specs. Let us have a look at them.
Honor 9C is the kind of this line-up
Honor 9C comes with a 6.39” (1560 x 720) IPS LCD, with a punch-hole. The device ships with Kirin 710A, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable with the help of a MicroSD slot. The phone runs on Magic UI 3.1, skinned on to Android 10.
The primary rear camera is a 48MP shooter, along with an 8MP ultrawide and 2MP depth sensor. The front camera is an 8MP shooter and sits in the hole-punch at the top left of the screen. There is a rear-mounted traditional fingerprint scanner. The phone ships with a 4000 mAh battery and also support NFC. Available in blue and black colors, it costs around 175USD.
Honor 9A can get all the daily jobs done
The device comes with a 6.3”(1600 x 720) display that houses a waterdrop notch. Powered by MediaTek Helio P22 Soc, it comes with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The battery life here is higher than what it is with Honor 9C, owing to the 5000 mAh battery. We still have the NFC retained, and see a read mounted fingerprint scanner.
The primary camera is a 13MP shooter along with a 5MP secondary lens. The front camera measures at 8MP. The device is available for ore-orders in blue, green and black colors and costs around 150USD.
Honor 9S is the lowest priced smartphone of the line-up
The device costs around 100USD. At this price point, we get a 5.45”(1440 x 720) decent display. The rear camera is a single 8MP shooter and there is a 5MP front-facing camera. No fingerprint scanner in this device, but cannot complain at this price point.
The battery capacity is 3020 mAh, and the phone comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Sales of all these devices would start on 4th May 2020.
One big problem with all these devices is that they do not come with Google Services. After a controversy, Google banned Huawei. Although the company is working hard and has developed an indigenous App Store called Huawei’s HMS suite, reading emails and watching content might be a problem.
