Huawei today debuted its Honor 9 flagship smartphone that will soon launch in Europe. It’s already available in China, but it’ll soon go farther west and retail for £380 (roughly €450 or $490) which isn’t bad when considering the specs.
Inside the Honor 9, Huawei packs a 5.15-inch 1080p display, a Kirin 960 processor with up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a fingerprint sensor. There’s two cameras on the back consisting of a 12MP primary sensor and a 20MP monochrome sensor for better low-light performance, a Portrait mode like the OnePlus 5 and iPhone 7 Plus, and lossless zoom. To power everything, a 3,200mAh battery is present which is chargeable over USB-C.
There’s also EMUI 5.1 based on Android Nougat to for software.
All of these specifications come inside an all-glass body that features a 3D-type effect when viewing the phone in different angles and lighting conditions. It comes in silver and the famous blue finish Honor is known for, while those in countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy can all now purchase the handset. Unfortunately, there’s currently no plans to bring the handset to the U.S., but stay tuned since this may change.
