In mid-June, the Honor 9 was unveiled for select markets, but today, Honor went ahead and opened it up to more parts of Europe. For those interested, you’ll now find the device in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and the UK. Depending on the market, it carries a price of either £379.99 (4GB RAM + 64GB storage) or €449.99 (6GB RAM + 64GB storage). In total, the phone is available in 25 countries.
To refresh you, even though this phone doesn’t appear to be coming to the US, it sports a 5.15″ FHD display, dual rear-facing cameras (12MP RGB + 20MP monochrome), 3200mAh battery, microSD support, fingerprint reader, Kirin 960 processor, NFC, headphone jack, and EMUI 5.1 running atop Android “Nougat.”
As for US availability, Honor appears quite hesitant to say much. Whenever asked, the company falls back to, “it’s not planned at this moment.” I actually enjoyed the Honor 8 quite a bit, so it’s upsetting that we may not see the Honor 9 reach our shores. It is a rather handsome device.
Anyway, if you live in one of the markets that it is available, go check it out.
