Huawei’s sub-brand Honor announced the Honor 9 will be making its way to Europe. The Honor 9 was first launched in China a few weeks ago but Huawei is beginning to expand the roll out of the device.
The Honor 9 is very much the descendant of the Honor 8. It features the same design language with only a few updates to the body. Among the key changes made was moving the fingerprint scanner from the back to the front.
Everything else is the same including the noticeable front bezels and familiar glass and metal build.
Some of the specs inside the Honor 9 include a 5.15-inch 1080p display (the Honor 8 had a 5.2-inch display), Kirin 960 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with expandability, 3,200mAh battery and 12MP/20MP dual-camera system. Out of the box, the Honor 9 will come with Android Nougat.
Huawei is touting features like the front 3D glass, the dual camera and enhanced audio tuning by Monster as the device’s main selling points.
The Honor 9 will be sold in two variants across Europe. The 4GB of RAM model will be sold in the U.K. while the rest of Europe will get a 6GB of RAM model. It will retail for £380 (U.K.) and €450 (Europe), or roughly about $500. The price difference is likely attributed to the RAM differences. There’s still no word on when or if it will be arriving in the U.S like its predecessor did last year.
The Honor 9 is now available for purchase across Europe including the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy.
