A couple of days ago, a new Honor phone was spotted online. As per the source, the phone is the mini version of Honor V9. Turns out, while Honor is indeed launching a smartphone soon, it will be dubbed as Honor V9 Play.
The Chinese company has released a teaser poster for the upcoming smartphone on its official Weibo page. The poster reveals, the Honor V9 Play will be launched on September 6, which is the last day of IFA 2017. It seems like, the device will be exclusive to the Chinese market. Currently, we are not sure if it will be shipped to other markets later on.
Talking about the Honor V9 Play, it is expected to be a lower-end version of the Honor V9 with toned-down specifications. Well, the Honor V9 Play had earlier appeared on the Chinese certification site TENAA, revealing some of its key specs.
The TENAA listing also contained the smartphone's image. As you can see from the image below, it sports a single camera lens at the back, which is accompanied by a LED flash. There is also a circular fingerprint sensor just below the camera module.
Design-wise, the Honor V9 Play looks quite mundane. While the rear panel appears to be made of metal, the top and bottom portions are probably made with plastic.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Honor phone is likely to be powered by a Kirin 659 chipset that will be clubbed with 4 GB of RAM.
In terms of optics, the TENAA listing reveals, the Honor V9 Play sports a 12MP primary camera. Unfortunately, no information regarding the front camera has not been mentioned.
