The Honor 9A, out on June 26, has a 6.3in dew-drop display (1,600 x 720-pixel resolution) and three rear cameras – a 13-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera and 2-megapixel camera with depth sensor.
The company claimed that its 120° 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera takes broader panoramic shots and the 13-megapixel camera uses algorithms to shoot better Bokeh portraits.
For selfies, there is an 8-megapixel camera which can also be used to unlock the phone. It also has an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone has an audio feature dubbed the Smart PA sound system that is claimed to be able to crank up to volume to 88db (decibel).
Users can also turn on the Party Mode to play the same music on multiple phones (which also have to be from Honor).
The device, which runs on Mediatek MT6762R processor, is powered by Android 10 and has 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. Up to 512GB more can be added via a microSD card.
It also has a big 5,000mAh battery, built-in FM tuner, and comes with AppGallery for installing mobile apps.
The Honor 9A will be available in two colours – Phantom Blue and Midnight Black – for RM549.
It can be purchased online from June 26 at 12pm. Those who wish to get it from a physical store can only buy it from July 6 though they can pre-order it starting June 26.
Customers will receive free gifts worth RM218, including a backpack and water bottle, while stocks last.
