Huawei Honor 9N Features
The Huawei Honor 9N came with a 5.85 inch LCD of FHD+ display with 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution. It has a narrow notch on the top. It is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset, paired with either a 3GB or 4GB RAM, depending on the storage configuration you want to buy.
The 3GB RAM version came with a 32GB internal storage, while the 4GB RAM came with either 64GB or 128GB internal storage. All the internal storage are expandable via a microSD card slot, but it will cost you a second SIM since it came with a hybrd SIM. Might just be one of the flaws.
On the back of the Huawei Honor 9N, you will find a dual camera setup which consists of 13MP sensor accompanied by a 2MP one for depth sensing, and also a fingerprint scanner. The front-facing camera located on the notch is a 16MP sensor, which makes the Honor 9N to be tagged as a selfie-centric smartphone.
