Twice as bright
LG V20 review

Huawei announced it will unveil Honor V9 on February 21 – the week before MWC. The device has a ChinaMobile branding on its back, indicating its China-exclusive status. But according to a company insider the device will go global just under a different name. The V9 will be rebranded to Honor 8 Pro and revealed at the Huawei event on February 27 in Barcelona.


The Honor V9 is powered by the octa-core Kirin 960, clocked at 2.4 GHz and has a 5.7” QHD display. The RAM options are 4GB and 6GB while storage options include 64 GB or 128 GB. The device has a massive 3,900 mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor on the back. There’s also a dual 12MP+2MP camera on the back and a single 8MP camera on the front.

According to the source, Honor 8 Pro will go on sale in late March 2017. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.
