An alleged image showing the successor to the Honor Note 8 has leaked online today, courtesy of a poster on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
Sadly, only the back of the phablet is seen in the image, so we will need to wait longer to get a look at the phablet from the front. From the rear, it looks like the Honor Note 9 will be slightly different from its predecessor. Perhaps the most obvious difference is that the Honor Note 9 features a dual-camera setup at the back, as opposed to a single camera solution found on the Honor Note 8. The fingerprint scanner too appears slightly different, as do the antenna lines.
Since the Honor Note 8 features a huge 6.6-inch QHD display, we expect the Honor Note 9 to feature a similar sized display with the same Quad HD resolution. Under the hood, it is expected to be powered by the latest Kirin 960 octa-core SoC, which powers Huawei’s flagship Mate 9 and P10 family of smartphones. We also expect to see at least 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of built-in memory.
The Honor Note 8 was announced in September last year, so we don’t expect to see the Honor Note 9 go official anytime soon. We do however expect more leaks to continue pouring in until then.
