Global technology brand HONOR today launched the HONOR 9S smartphone in Malaysia. The Android-based Magic UI 3.1 update will be available on the HONOR 9S, offering an aesthetically pleasing UX design as well as a selection of user-friendly features. Powered by a 3020mAh battery, up to 32GB of expandable storage and a single rear camera for impressive photography, the HONOR 9S packs more punch for just RM 359 and will be available from 28 September 2020.
Pocket-Sized Perfection with a User-Friendly Viewing Experience
Featuring a 5.45-inch FullView Display with a 1440 x 720-pixel resolution, the HONOR 9S delivers a vivid and immersive viewing experience for gaming and video playback. The HONOR 9S display emits far less blue light, obtaining the Eye Comfort Certification from TÜV Rheinland. Not only does the new technology make the 9S more comfortable to use, but it also maintains a very high color range, ideal for those who spend lots of time on their smartphones.
When it comes to weight, the HONOR 9S is wonderfully light at just 144 grams and features a slim bezel that is 8.35mm thin. Unlike its predecessor, the HONOR 9S is available in three classic colors – Black, Blue and Red with a frosted matte finish.
Latest Magic UI 3.1 Enables Enhanced UX Design and User-Friendly Features
Kitted out with the latest Magic UI 3.1, the HONOR 9S features an all-new Dark Mode which allows users to navigate their smartphone more comfortably. Supported by ergonomics research, the Dark Mode strikes an optimal contrast between text and the background to enhance the overall reading experience. Moreover, color saturation is also modified to ensure greater consistency between the normal mode and Dark Mode. Additional design benefits include an all-new magazine-style layout with larger fonts and more blank space offering a cleaner display.
8MP main Camera and All-Day Long Battery Life
The HONOR 9S features an 8MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture on the back. Supported by advanced technologies, the 8MP main camera is capable of taking shots of panoramas and other pro-grade photos while the 5MP front camera with enhanced Beauty Mode delivers perfect selfies every time.
In addition to the impressive single camera at the back, the HONOR 9S offers superior battery life. Powered by a 3020mAh battery, the device can easily take you from day to night, supporting up to 21 hours of phone calls and 17 hours of video playback.
Intelligent Performance Upgrades
Running on Android 10, the HONOR 9S features the Huawei App Gallery, which is one of the world’s three largest app stores, with more than 400 million active users worldwide. With the support of the upgraded Huawei Assistant, you can find all your favorite news and services all in one place through Global Search, Instant Access, SMARTCARE Service Cards, and News Feed.
With 32GB of storage which can be expanded by a microSD card (up to 512GB), users can easily download all their essential and exclusive apps on the HUAWEI App Gallery as well as store plenty of photos and videos without having to move files into computers or portable hard drives. In addition to the microSD slot, HONOR 9S comes with two independent SIM card slots so you can enjoy more storage and still have separate SIM cards for work and personal use.
