Honor 9 Pro, everything we know

Honor is ready to close 2017 by presenting a new top of the line: Honor 9 Pro. It is a phone without bezels and with similar features to the Mate 10

The OnePlus 5T seemed to be the last cynosure among this year's top of the line. Instead, Honor has announced the new Honor V10, which will be launched in Europe as the Honor 9 Pro. For those who do not know Honor, it is a subsidiary of Huawei and in recent years is also conquering the European market.

The Chinese company has set the date of presentation of the device: December 5 in London. But for the time being, it hasn't leaked much news about the Honor 9 Pro's technical features. Thinking about the model released last year you can guess that it will definitely be a top of the range and that with his little brother (the Honor 9) will have little in common. According to rumors released in recent days, the smartphone should have many features identical with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, starting with the borderless design. For the first time Honor will present a cell phone with very small bezels and an 18:9 screen, following the example of the main competitors.

Features Honor 9 Pro

Honor 9 Pro is a top-of-the-line smartphone: from the camera up to the processor. The cell phone of the Chinese company will mount a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. This is the exact same display with aspect ratio 18:9 already seen on Huawei's Mate 10 Pro. And the similarities with the latter device are many. On board the smartphone we find the chipset Kirin 970 supported by 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Thanks to the Kirin 970 processor, the Huawei 9 Pro should also have features dedicated to artificial intelligence and machine learning.

In the rear Honor 9 Pro has two cameras, made by Leica, one 16-megapixel and the other 20-megapixel and they will take advantage of the Neural Processing Unit present in the processor to improve the quality of images. The front camera will be 8 megapixels. The battery should be 3750 mAh. 

Price and release date Honor 9 Pro

For the moment, the only thing certain concerns the presentation date: December 5. The arrival on the European market, however, should not be delayed: by the end of the year the Honor 9 Pro should be available in Italy. The price? Probably more than 450-500 euros.
