The Honor 9N is priced at ₹11,999 for the base model, and, starting today, it’s now available for purchase in India.

The Honor 9N sports a 5.84-inch IPS display that has aspect ratio of 19:9, resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, and of course, a notch up top. The front and back of the 9N is covered with 2.5D curved glass. In fact, Honor says that it has used 12 layers of nano glass coating at the back to achieve mirror-like effect.

Under the hood, the Honor 9N comes with Kirin 659 SoC running the show, and, it boots up to Android 8.0 Oreo which is layered with EMUI 8.0 custom Android skin atop. The Honor 9N will also be getting GPU Turbo through an OTA update. For those unaware, GPU Turbo is a graphics processing acceleration technology that improves the graphics performance of a smartphone by 60% while reducing the power consumption by 30%.
