Honor Note 9 specs might include 6GB RAM, Kirin 965 CPU and massive 4,600 mAh battery

The enormous Honor Note 8 was officially unveiled exactly one year ago, so it would make perfect sense that a sequel would be announced around the same time. Unfortunately, Honor doesn't have any launch events scheduled for the next couple of weeks, so we can only hope the unannounced Honor Note 9 will be revealed at IFA 2017 in early September.

Until then, let's take a look at what the massive phablet might pack under the hood, thanks to the latest leaks coming from China. We don't know yet if the Honor Note 9 will boast a huge display like the predecessor that sports a 6.6-inch panel, but the images accompanying the list of specs reveal an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.

According to the list of the specs leaked recently, Honor Note 9 should come with a dual-camera setup comprising of two 12-megapixel snap shooters. Also, the phone will carry a large 4,600 mAh battery, which is much needed considering this could be one of the biggest smartphones on the market.

Under that shiny chassis, the Honor Note 9 will pack the next-generation Kirin 965 processor, an improved version of the current Kirin 960 chipset, which hasn't been introduced yet.

Finally, the phablet is said to include 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage, which is only fit for a flagship device. The Honor Note 9 is likely to be announced in September, but it might not go on sale until later this year.

The Note8 should come with a 4000mah, but instead a mingy 3500Mah.

They do... at least this side here in Malaysia you'd see quite a number of people with actual 7-8" tabs doing calls "conventionally". Yes on face, not via BT etc.

Not really a design win imho. Lenovo P2 packs a 5100mAh battery despite keeping a 5.5" screened dimensions. Slightly thicker of course but just millimeters that almost anyone would gladly trade off. And Leeco Le Pro 3 is probably the only Snapdragon 82x driven device with a 4000mAh batt too.
