Huawei Honor Note 9 leaks and rumors

Huawei Honor Note 9 won't have a headphone jack, according to new leak

huawei honor note 9 news v9 7
The Huawei Honor Note 8 was launched in August 2016, so it’s about time we start hearing rumors about a follow-up — the Huawei Honor Note 9. Well folks, based on what we’re hearing from the rumor mill, the Honor Note 9 is shaping up to be quite a device.

As rumors trickle in, we’ll continue to update you on all the latest information about the Honor Note 9. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming phone so far.

Design

The latest leak pertaining to the Huawei Honor Note 9 actually comes in the form of an image that claims to show the back of the phone — and if it’s accurate, the Honor Note 9 could be an absolutely mammoth phone. The image comes courtesy of GizChina.

Not only can we see that the phone is big, but the photo also makes clear that the Honor Note 9 will feature a dual camera on its back — unlike its predecessor, the Honor Note 8. The back also houses a fingerprint sensor and a dual LED flash.

The photo also shows that the device will have a full metal body — which is great for those looking for a durable device. Given the fact that there’s a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, we can also assume that we won’t see any hardware buttons on the front. Hopefully that means it will have a large display.

The latest report from The Tech Point certainly suggests a large display, as per leaked images of the Honor 9 in its black color variant. And not only will it be big, but it’ll be headphone jack-less, much like the iPhone 7. So if you’re looking to plug your earbuds into a 3.5mm audio jack, you better look elsewhere.

Specs

Unfortunately, we don’t yet have any solid leaks about the specs of the phone, but we can make a few assumptions — namely that the phone will feature a new Kirin 960 chip. It’s also expected that the phone will feature a 2K display, although we’ll have to wait until we hear more rumors or until the phone is released to confirm that.

We’ll update this post as we hear more on the Huawei Honor Note 9.
