For less than 160 dollars, the Honor 9A offers triple camera and large battery

After the release of the Honor 9X Pro, Honor is now attacking the low-cost smartphone market with the Honor 9A. A device that benefits from a very good value for money since it is launched in a few days at less than 160 dollars.
Honor is preparing to launch a brand new smartphone in its wide range of products. This is the Honor 9A, a device that wants to be very accessible with a price of only 150$. An aggressive price which does not prevent the Honor 9A from displaying muscular technical characteristics, particularly in the field of photography and autonomy.

An Apparatus That Goes On Autonomy :

While autonomy may be a neglected point in the world of low-cost smartphones, the 9A displays an impressive battery. With 5000 mAh, it promises long hours of use without running out of steam. On the one hand because it has a large capacity, on the other hand the other components of the Honor 9A consume little energy.

Indeed, the Honor 9A is equipped with the Mediatek Helio P22 processor with 3 GB of RAM. It’s a low-power chip that provides a smooth experience for classic browsing and content consumption (video streaming, social media), and even some games.

Working Design :

Despite its low price, the design of the Honor 9A has not been overlooked. As is often the case with Honor, the back of the phone is machined to reflect light nicely. The back is cut in two places, to house the fingerprint sensor, but also the photo module including sensors and flash.

Up front, the Honor 9A can boast a screen that occupies 88% of the front panel. The 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel (1600 x 720) is cut out with a small notch in the shape of a teardrop. This allows you to take full advantage of the screen diagonal to play videos without embarrassment.

The latter continues to develop and is attracting more and more applications designed for Europeans. To find out more about Huawei Mobile Services, you can consult our article on this subject.

While the Petal Search app makes it easy to find apps on the Internet by compiling several secure sources for downloads.
