Honor has expanded its Honor 9 series by releasing Honor 9A, 9S, and 9Con 4 May 2020 in Russia. All these devices are of better value for money smartphones with attractive pricing. Honor 9A follows the design of Honor Play 9A, while Honor 9C is a lot similar to that of Honor Play 4T. Further, Honor 9S is the most affordable device in the Honor 9 series. So let's find in detail about these devices. 

Overview of Honor 9A

The front of Honor 9A has a 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel with a minimal bezel around the screen. The top of the display has a U shaped notch to embed an 8MP selfie shooter. The display has HD+(720X1600 pixels) resolution with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Overall the display is good but is not as great as OLED or AMOLED panels. 

Similarly, at the back of the device, there is a Triple rear camera setup in a rectangular camera housing. The primary 13MP lens is coupled with a 5MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP depth sensor. It is great to have a triple camera setup even in an entry-level smartphone like Honor 9A. The photo quality will be good and will let you know in detail once this device is launched in Nepal.

To power, the device, MediaTek Helio P22 12 nm Chipset is used with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. This chipset can only handle the casual daily task which does not require a lot of processing power. This device is not idle for gaming and running graphic-intensive tasks. Honor 9A got 3GB RAM and 64GB storage with support for external microSD card. Regarding the battery, there is a bigger 5000 mAh battery inside Honor 9A. Further, it got a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The backside of the device got a triple rear camera setup in a vertical camera housing. The primary 48MP lens is assisted by an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP depth sensor.
