Huawei spills an eye-searing shade of blue on the Honor 9

New, 24 comments

Honor is releasing its Honor 9 phone in a new "robin egg blue" shade. The turquoise is certainly unique, although I'm not sure whether that's a good thing. We all want our phones to stand out, but this blue makes my eyes hurt a little bit? It's just so bright and so turquoise. I want to put it in an Easter basket. It shouldn't leave the Easter basket.

Maybe you're into the pastel trend, though, and are ready to fully commit to that lifestyle, in which case, this is probably a good color for you. The limited edition release went on sale in China on August 16th. It'll be coming to the UK in mid-September for £459.99.


The affordability makes sense given that the phone only features a 5.15-inch Full HD display and includes a Kirin 960 processor instead of one from Qualcomm's Snapdragon line. It also has a dual rear-facing camera system, although that's quickly becoming a budget phone option.
