Initially, the market expert expected it to be launched as Honor Play, but then the company put all the rumors to an end by announcing the name and releasing date of the phone.
Design & Feel
The Huawei smartphone comes with flagship looks and design that has been crafted over a metallic body. Honor 9N owns a smaller notch in the screen that made the higher aspect ratio possible. At the top of the smartphone, you will see a front camera and a sensor mounted on the upper bezel. The phone comes with a minimal bezel that holds a very thin chip at the bottom having honor logo. The full front screen with a higher screen to body ratio makes it an iPhone X clone from the front. On flipping the Honor 9N, you will find a dual rear camera stacked horizontally at the left corner. At the center position, you will see a fingerprint sensor which is very convenient to reach while holding the phone.
