Honor 9i Features
The Honor 9i features a bezel-less design with an edge-to-edge screen and a screen to body ratio of 83 percent. Thanks to the metal unibody design, matte back and minimal bezels, the smartphone looks quite premium and futuristic. The rounded corners, curved edges and 2.5D glass on front aid in-hand feel and help reduce the bulk of the smartphone.
The Honor 9i comes with a 5.9-inch FullHD+ edge-to-edge display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Huawei claims that the minimal bezels allow them to fit a 5.9-inch display into what is effectively a 5.5-inch smartphone form factor. The ‘FullView’ display has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 and is covered by 2.5D glass which not only looks premium but enhances in-hand feel.
