Huawei’s sub-brand Honor was launched in India 3 years ago and today was their three year anniversary.To celebrate their existence in the Indian smartphone market for this time period they launched a new phone called the Honor 9i. The Honor 9i is essentially the Maimang 6 which was launched in China in the month of September in 2017.
Every bit of the phone is same except the phone is branded as Honor and not Huawei. The phone also resembles the Huawei Nova 2i which was launched earlier this month in Malaysia. The highlight of the phone is the presence of dual cameras on both sides i.e dual camera setup on the front as well as on the rear. Another highlight is the FullView Display which is basically fewer bezels and the weird but trendy aspect ratio of 18:9 which many smartphones are touting these days.
