DUBAI – With the launching of extravagant phones these days, it’s hard to get one with quality. Thanks to Huawei for bringing Honor 9. Mid-range consumers can get to afford this top-end mobile.

Just like the Honor 8, its predecessor, Honor 9 gives one premium experience.

Honor 9’s rear looks exactly like the Honor 9 but everything from the over-all design, performance, even the dual camera hardware, and every corner of this phone is hiding an upgrade.

Just recently, Huawei has released this phone in the gulf region and I might say that this is one of the best mid-range buys of the year so far.

I was able to review its device and I got the blue version of it. It has a multi-layered structure that reacts to light, making its body shine.

This very handy phone has curved glass on its back, it’s very nice and soft to feel but I’m too afraid to drop it.

In the market, it’s also available in silver, grey and black.

It comes with Gorilla Glass 3 on its front and back, and aluminum coated to match the color of the rest of the phone on the sides.

Just like any other high-end mobile units, Honor 9 also offers a lot but for a much lower price.

The Honor 9 has been designed with millennials fast paced lives in mind, boasting an upgraded 20MP + 12MP dual lens camera, outstanding audio quality and a Kirin 960 chipset, 6GB RAM, and EMUI 5.1 robust processing core that guarantees powerful performance.

It comes with 128GB and 64GB storage with an expandable storage option of up to 256GB, giving users the freedom to explore more.

It is priced at AED 1,999.
