Huawei reveals the new Honor 9, a 1080p 5.15" phone with dual cameras and a calibrated display

In an event earlier today Huawei showed off the latest entry in the Honor series, the Honor 9. Powered by an octa-core Kirin 960, a 5.15" 1080p screen, and toting 6GB of RAM, it is a pretty decent phone. The dual-camera setup on the back of the Honor 9 is similar to that on the iPhone 7 Plus, with a dedicated 2x optical zoom lens on one sensor. You'll be able to pick it up in two different sizes, 64GB and 128GB, and all for just 2299/2999 yuan, which works out to around $340 and $440.

SurfaceFlinger Hack Brings Screen Calibration To Nexus Ones Running CyanogenMod 6

 

Remember Jeff Sharkey’s screen tool that allowed you to turn off the sub-pixels of specific colours on the Nexus One’s PenTile display, in order to save battery?

XDA-Developers member storm99999 has just published a hack allowing you to apply a different colour calibration profile to your N1’s screen using the very same function. However, rather than switching sub-pixels off completely, this hack changes the voltages and thus the colour balance to suit a particular colour temperature. In its current implementation, the mod changes the screen temperature from 9000K to 6500K, a slightly warmer hue.

Originally available as a flashable ZIP for ROMs supporting the original SurfaceFlinger hack, storm99999’s colour calibration profile is now included in the latest CyanogenMod 6 Nightly.
