Huawei will soon introduce a new mid-class smartphone with the Honor 9, which is already on some press pictures and reveals details on the equipment – unfortunately not in the positive sense.
The Honor 9 looks very similar to the predecessor Honor 8. This is not to be seen negatively because of the Honor 8 with the chic design of glass and aluminum quite pleased. So it is no wonder that Huawei does not completely change the design. On the front, however, the most important deviation from the predecessor is found below the display. The fingerprint scanner is now seated at the front. The Honor logo disappears. It will be difficult to distinguish whether you hold the Honor 9 or Huawei P10 in the future. Visually, it looks almost exactly the same front.
Whether the decision to get the fingerprint scanner on the front is really correct, be times adjusted. This is probably the case with the Honor 9, the many loved Huawei and Honor fans. So it was with the P10. Good, that the price of the Honor 8 already so strongly fallen, since one can also access the predecessor.
There is hardly anything on the back. The dual camera with laser autofocus and dual-LED flashes sits in a known place. Whether resolution is increasing is not yet known. Otherwise, there is a back of the glass with Honor logo. This is also the only indication that it is the more favorable model.
Honor 9 without headphone jack
With the fingerprint scanner on the front under the display, one could still be befriended, but Huawei also waived the Honor 9 also on the connection for headphones. There is only one USB Type-C port available so you need to buy new headphones or use an adapter. Since the Honor 8, no headphones were attached, Huawei would have to deliver an adapter – which is also not an optimal solution if you want to charge the smartphone and at the same time listen to music. As an alternative, Bluetooth headphones offer.
It will be interesting to see whether the information about the Honor 9 is really valid. Optimal is this development to the iPhone copy not. Stereo speakers will probably not exist, but only a customized design, as with other Honor smartphones. What a pity.
