It seems we may be getting more than one Honor phone on November 28. Unconfirmed reports say apart from the Honor V10, Huawei will also announce the Honor 9 Youth Edition (or Honor 9 Lite).
According to the source, the Honor 9 Youth Edition may keep the double-sided glass design of the Honor 9. Some of the colors it will be available in are Obsidian Black, Sea Blue, Pearl White, and Seagull Gray.
The Honor 9 Youth Edition said to be codenamed “Leland” is reported to have gotten its 3C certification. Some of its key specs include a 5.2-inch full HD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a Kirin 659 processor and 4GB of RAM. Built-in storage is 64GB but will most definitely be expandable.
For optics, the phone will have a single 13MP rear camera. However it will pack dual front cameras, one of which is a 2MP sensor. Battery capacity is not stated but it will have support for 5V/2A fast charging. The Honor 9 is expected to cost ¥1999 (~$303).
While all these specification details are unverified, there is a high chance the device may indeed launch alongside the Honor V10. Earlier this year when Huawei announced the Honor V9, it came along with the Honor 8 Youth Edition/Lite. So they might as well repeat it again.
