Honor 9 launches in Europe, priced at €430 / £380, including free Band 3

Last year, Huawei's Honor brand launched a new flagship-class handset, offering high-end specs at a relatively low price. The Honor 8 was rather good, earning a high score in our review, thanks to its excellent build quality, stylish design, and impressive battery life.

Today, the company launched the Honor 9 in Europe, building on the successful formula of its predecessor. Like the last model, the Honor 9 offers a blend of attractive design and premium specs, including a dual-lens camera promising superlative low-light performance.

"With the new Honor 9, we take manufacturing excellence to the next level", said Eva Wimmers, President of Honor Western Europe. "Honor 9 does not only stand out through its elegant 3D curved glass back design, it also incorporates the newest camera features, easy to use for any proficiency level, and market-leading smartphone technologies - we build technology for people."

The Honor 9's key specs include:

  • 5.15-inch LCD with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution
