Honor has just introduced three budget smartphones Honor 9C, 9A, and 9S in Russia. The models come with complaisant features tagged with attractive prices. However, due to the ongoing tiff between Huawei and Google, all three lack Google Mobile services.

Honor 9C Features and Price

Ranking higher in terms of features and price, Honor 9C flaunts a frameless punch-hole display that measures 6.39-inches and has 1560×720 pixels. The phone has a triple camera setup at the rear with a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera is equipped with an 8MP sensor for selfies and video calls.

The phone comes with a 4000mAh battery, NFC support, and a fingerprint sensor at the back. The cost of Honor 9C is RUB 12,990  (approx Rs. 13,330) and comes in blue and black colors.
