The three lenses on the main camera module (13 MP, 2 MP & 5 MP with 120° field of view) enable wide-angle shots and portraits with depth of field in addition to conventional modes. The Selfie camera with 8 MP is located in a notch on the front.

With 64 GB memory (expandable to 512 GB with SD card) the HONOR 9A is very well equipped for its price range. The 3.5 millimeter jack for headphones is well received by many, but the rather outdated micro-USB port has to be accepted for charging.
