Honor aficionados won't be shocked at the design of the shiny new Honor 9 flagship phone. When it comes to pricing, Honor 9 will start at £379.99/€449,90. Also worth noting is that the Kirin 960 is found in Huawei's flagship P10, too. As for the Honor 9 itself, the handset is the successor to the highly successful Honor 8 that made headlines for packing a punch yet available at an affordable price. The phone does not come in a bezel-less design, though the bezels are considerably slimmer in the Honor 9.

The Honor 9 was officially announced for the Chinese market earlier in June and while the United Kingdom and Europe might get a modified version, there are many clues as to the specifications we can look forward to. This pleasingly compact handset uses a blend of materials for a satisfying finish; glass on the front and curved rear end, broken up by a sandblasted metal rim. There are other colours on offer, of course, but this Sapphire Blue is the nicest-looking. Let's find out the differences and key points about the Huawei Honor device. The resolution is the same, though, so it's just as sharp, and first impressions are that quality is excellent, with deep, inky black response and vibrant, solid colours. The Russian portal Hi-Tech Mail listed the basic version of the Honor 9 and revealed the pricing just a few hours before launch.

A rare feature included in the Honor 9 is an IR blaster to control over 250k devices that support infra-red. Read next: Best phone for 2017.

Expressive portraits can be captured with the main and front camera - with or without bokeh effect. For me, this is a more convenient position since it means you can unlock with your finger without having to pick up the phone from your desk. The fingerprint sensor has also been relocated to the front, where it's joined on either side by two (swappable) capacitive buttons, similar to OnePlus's recent designs.

The Honor 8 Pro is the latest smartphone to join the dual camera bandwagon and thus it comes with a pair of 12-megapixel sensors where one sensor will help capture images in RGBw while the other sensor will capture details in monochrome. The configuration is slightly different this time around, though. The camera should prove to be a major draw of this device, with its 12MP RBG lens and its 20MP monochrome lens.

Don't expect a big operating system change though. We don't yet know which we'll get. For everybody who is into entertainment on the go - be it videos or music, the device features various common audio formats and HUAWEI histen.
