HONOR 9 and HONOR Band 3 global price and availability revealed
The HONOR 9 was recently launched in China and details of its availability in other markets have slowly been trickling in. At a press event in Berlin, HONOR has now announced the device in Europe.
The smartphone starts at €449 for the 4 GB RAM model with 64 GB of internal storage space and is available from the official hihonor.com website in four colors: blue, black, silver and gold. A 6 GB of RAM model with 128 GB of storage will also be launching in Europe, but HONOR hasn’t yet discussed its price.
The handset will be available in 25 countries from today — check out the list of them from the conference below.
The HONOR 9 is the latest flagship from HUAWEI sub-brand HONOR, arriving in a 3D glass body with a 5.15-inch Full-HD display, Kirin 960 chip, and a 20 MP + 12 MP dual-lens rear camera. On the handset’s front, you’ll find an 8 MP camera and a fingerprint sensor, and it’s powered by a 3,200 mAh battery. It’s also running Android Nougat out of the box with HUAWEI’s EMUI 5.1 skin.
Meanwhile, HONOR vice-president Eva Wimmers recently told Android Central that a US release for the HONOR 9 “is not planned at this moment.” Though that leaves some hope that it may head Stateside in the future, it’s not exactly likely that this will happen: only some of HONOR’s phones are released in the territory. Like the HONOR 8 Pro released in Europe in April, the HONOR 9 might miss out on the US entirely.
At the Berlin press event, HONOR announced new fitness band too. The HONOR Band 3 is a low-cost fitness tracker said to provide up to 30-day battery life thanks to its 100 mAh battery. The unit weighs just 18 grams and comes with a heart-rate monitor, accelerometer and IR sensor, as well as a 0.91-inch PMOLED 128 x 32-pixel resolution display. It also has sleep tracking capabilities, keeps running records and is water resistant up to 50-meters.
The HONOR Band 3 comes in Dynamic Orange, Classic Navy Blue, and Carbon Black color options for €69.
