The phone runs on HiSilicon Kirin 659 Soc coupled with 3 and 4 GB of Ram. There are three different storage options available of 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB which can be expanded up to 256 GB via microSD card.
Honor 9N Design and Camera
Honor 9N has great design and one of the best cameras in its segment. It has unibody metal finish and looks amazing from back and rear. Color options make it even more gorgeous like Sapphire Blue and Purple one. You get a notch on top but you can hide it and it looks fabulous. The design is almost bezel-less and this is for the first time honor used the notch design. The camera is of 13 MP and a 2MP Depth Sensor but the quality is really amazing.
Something more amazing is its front camera. Its a 16 MP Camera but honor worked a lot in its camera department as the results are fabulous. Cameras are so optimized for the phone and lots of AI features added. The phone runs on android 8.0 and EMUI 8. The camera includes features such as Pro Photo, Pro Video, HDR, Night Shot, Light Painting, Time-Lapse, Good Food, Wide Aperture, Moving Picture, and more. Meanwhile, a ‘Snap First, Focus Later’ feature.
Honor 9N Performance
There is kirin 659 chipset on the phone which is pretty old for now but it does the job. We have seen the same processor in honor 9 lite, 7x etc. 659 does the job pretty well for gaming requirements and it is well optimized with the camera and battery. So no more heating issues. Basic variant is priced at Rs 12000 and you get a beautiful design from the front and back, fabulous camera and an overall optimized smartphone with hardware and software.
Talking about competition there are smartphones like Redmi note 5, note 5 pro, Asus Zenfone max pro m1, Realme 1, moto g6 plus etc. But Honor 9N Smartplix has some advantages in terms of design and camera. People looking for a good looking phone with camera expectations can definitely go for honor 9N.
All in all Honor 9N Smartplix is a great smartphone with beautiful look and design but it uses the same old processor. it’s like Xiaomi and Honor have some kind of obsession with Snapdragon 625 and kirin 659 respectively.
