Honor9i 4 Camera setup
Photography enthusiasts can rejoice. The Honor 9i is quintessentially focused on enhancing the overall smartphone experience for consumers enabling them to explore and discover various exciting new photography aspects. Leveraging in-house premium technology, Honor 9i cameras produce flattering pictures with 45-degrees projection, making every shot a ‘cover shot under butterfly lightning.’ The 13 MP dual-lens front camera incorporates studio-level smart selfie toning flash and delivers remarkable bokeh effect. The 16 MP dual lens back camera produces more vibrant pictures with vivid details for a more sophisticated photography experience. Honor is credited with some of the best camera smartphones available in the Indian market today, and with Honor 9i it is once again a trailblazer in this regard.
Honor9i Stunning FullView Display
At the forefront of the recent trend of bigger and brighter display to stream and view content, the Honor 9i incorporates Full View FHD+display. The new smartphone from Honor features a dazzling 5.9” display that delivers an unprecedented viewing experience and contributes to the device’s elegant design, as it effectively retains a 5.5” form factor.
The Honor 9i sits perfectly in one hand, while 18:9 aspect ratio offers a more comfortable split-screen experience for users to effectively multitask, allowing two apps to be run side-by-side to increase productivity. On the back of the Honor 9i, the flashlight, fingerprint sensor, USB socket and dual-lens camera all lie on the central axis of the phone. On the front, the dual-lens camera sits on the right, a reflection of the camera flash and distance sensor on the left. Achieving this level of near-perfect symmetry is an intelligent and purposeful design achievement.
Honor9i Software and Hardware
For exceptional user experience, the Honor 9i is a perfect balance of software and hardware. With an 8-core Kirin 659 chipset under the hood and 4X64 RAM/ROM internal storage, the Honor 9i is capable of seamlessly running multiple tasks efficiently. Huawei’s Android 7-based EMUI 5.1 intelligently optimizes the user experience by learning and predicting user behavior, making it a device that understands its owner and acting on this knowledge to improve performance. The 3340mAh battery delivers power efficiency with talk time up to 20 hours.
