As scheduled, Huawei’s sub-brand has launched its much awaited mid-range smartphone in India. Named Honor 9N, the handset has been launched during an event in India. The smartphone is officially said to be available exclusively through Flipkart – one of India’s leading e-commerce websites.
Honor 9N Price and Availability
The Honor 9N has been launched in India in three variants: 3GB RAM with 32GB ROM, 4GB RAM with 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM with 128GB ROM priced at ₹11,999, ₹13,999 and ₹17,999 respectively.

Honor 9N Specifications and Features
The Honor 9N is built around a 5.84 inch full HD+ IPS display with 19:9 aspect ratio, a notch and 1080×2280 pixels of resolution. It is powered by an octa-core processor coupled with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics processing unit, embedded into Huawei’s in-house developed Kirin 659 SoC. Its internals storage is expandable up to 256GB via microSD.
Talking about what’s interesting is its fingerprint sensor, face unlock and ‘ride mode’. The fingerprint sensor can be used for various purposes including silencing the alarm. The face unlock is very quick and comes with privacy guard. When you lift your phone, it won’t show notifications on the lock screen until it recognizes you. Talking about ride mode, it answers the call automatically without letting you know and let the other person know that you are riding the bike. It also gives an option to the other person to press “1” if it is urgent and then it notifies you about the call.
Coming to the imaging department, the Honor 9N features a combo of 13MP and 2MP cameras on the rear whereas a 16 megapixels shooter is placed at the front for selfies. The front facing camera comes with AI beautification mode. The 2MP camera on the rear is a depth sensor.
Further, the smartphone will get an OTA update pretty soon which will bring “GPU Turbo Boost” feature. It will enhance the performance when a person is playing game. Plus, the call and text while playing game won’t appear on screen; instead it will notify you through sound.
