Honor 9 “Light Catcher” spotted on TENAA, latest Kirin chipset and dual-camera setup


One of 2017’s most anticipated smartphones, the Honor 9 has appeared and has been certified by the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA. Expected to be revealed somewhere next month, three different versions codenamed STF-AL00, STF-TL10 and STF-AL10 were also found in the listing.

Some of the Honor 9’s specification can be seen below:

  • Octa-core 2.5GHz Chipset (Perhaps Huawei’s own Kirin 960)
  • 4/6GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage (up to 128GB support)
  • 5.15-inch LCD display
  • 147.3 x 70.9 x 7.45mm
  • 155g weight
  • 20MP+12MP main camera with 8MP front camera
  • Android 7.1.1
  • 3100 mAh battery


Based on some ads we have seen online, it can be seen that Honor has really highlighted on the Honor 9’s dual-camera setup. Being dubbed “The Light Catcher”, we can assume that the camera will most likely perform extremely well is super low-light conditions. Only time will tell.

As for the colour variations, only the gold model has been listed at the TENAA but we expect more colours to be released as well. Perhaps even the signature “Honor Blue” colour, eh?

No Malaysian releases or pricings can be found just yet but the device is expected to sell in China for around 3000 Yuan (RM1890). Do stay tuned to TechNave.com for any Malaysian updates on Honor’s upcoming masterpiece.
