Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched its newest flagship devices in China a few weeks ago, and now it’s on the way to Europe, according to 9to5Google. The Honor 9 comes with a respectable spec sheet for a device that will retail £380 (€450):
- 5.15-inch 1080p display
- Kirin 960 SoC
- Up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage
- Dual-camera setup, 12MP primary RGB sensor, 20MP monochrome sensor
- 3,200mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, USB-C
While the screen on the Honor 9 is slightly smaller than its predecessor, it has moved the fingerprint sensor to the front, and the cameras have been improved as well. Interestingly enough, how much RAM you’ll get in your phone depends on where you live in Europe: the UK is getting a 4GB / 64GB configuration, while the rest of Europe will receive the 6GB / 64GB edition.
If you live in the UK and are in the market for the Honor 9, it’s probably a good time to hop across the channel and pick up the more powerful version in France. As for a US release, while the Honor 8 did eventually make its way to the States, Huawei hasn’t given an indication whether the Honor 9 will also make the trip. We’ll just have to wait and see.
