Huawei promises imminent Honor 9 launch

Huawei Honor 9The high end Honor 9 handset has been unveiled, with Chinese manufacturer Huawei suggesting that it could go on sale before the end of the month.

The Honor 9 is set to offer 6GB of ram(!!!!!), a 5.15 inch 1080p display and similar internal hardware to that found onboard the existing Huawei P10, meaning it should be competitive with similar flagship devices from rival brands.

Rumours suggested that the Honor 9 would be following in the footsteps of the iPhone 7 and doing away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone socket however we are pleased to see Huawei have NOT done this and there is the standard headphone socket.

The European launch event for the Honor 9 is set to take place in Berlin on June the 27th, with insiders expecting that it will be available to buy in the UK shortly afterwards.

Huawei has carved out a reputation as offering impressive smartphones at affordable price points, undercutting the competition and never charging over the odds simply because of its brand. The Honor 9 will set out to continue this trend as summer arrives.
