The Huawei Honor 9 was just unveiled earlier today and the new device has already been spotted on the GeekBench database, giving us our first glimpse into the performance of the new Kirin 960-toting device.
The results of the Honor 9’s benchmark tests are pretty impressive for a mid-range device,achieving scores that, according to GSM Arena, come close to current flagships of other brands such as the Galaxy S8 and the Mi 6 and even beating out previous flagships such as the LG G6.
So it looks like the Kirin 960 in the Honor 9 isn’t to be underestimated. As a review, it packs four Cortex-A73 cores (running at 2.4GHz) and four A53 cores (clocked at 1.8GHz). The chipset was built on TSMC’s current 16nm FFC process.
Priced at 2,700 Yuan for the 64GB model and 3,000 Yuan for the 128GB model, the Honor 9 seems like an incredibly good deal if these benchmark results are to be considered.
