Honor and parent brand Huawei have seen a lot of trouble recently thanks to things like the trade ban and the sanctions put in place last year. That hasn't stopped the flow of new devices, though, despite them being really hard to use without any Google apps. Now Honor is unveiling a new 9A handset that packs the promise of major battery power, alongside some new wireless earbuds. Read More
Huawei's been releasing Oreo betas for several of its phones, but we still haven't heard much about updates for Honor-branded devices. Now Huawei has published a list of all the devices that Oreo is being developed for. Oddly, the Honor 8 is mentioned in spite of a confirmation from Honor India on Twitter that the phone wouldn't be getting Oreo. Read More
Honor has been pretty busy lately, with the launch of the 7X (which Jordan really enjoyed) and View10, as well as announcing that the latter will be coming to the US later in the year. The Huawei sub-brand today showcased yet another new device, the Honor 9 Lite, in India.
This budget version of the Honor 9 had already been unveiled in China, but is now beginning to see a wider release. It retains much from the overall design language of the phone released last summer, but with a few key changes. Most noticeably, the fingerprint scanner has moved to the rear and an extra camera has been added to the front to make it a 'Quad Lens' phone. Read More
Huawei announced the Honor 9 for the Chinese market two weeks ago. Today, it's announcing that the phone is coming to Europe for a "global launch," starting some time early next month. The UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy have been cited specifically as launch markets, with pricing in the UK starting at £379, while mainland Europe will pay €449.99.
The Honor 9 will be available in two variants, one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, the other with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Three colors will be available: glacier grey, sapphire blue, and midnight black. LTE bands for this European model include 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 38, 40, and 41. Read More
In an event earlier today Huawei showed off the latest entry in the Honor series, the Honor 9. Powered by an octa-core Kirin 960, a 5.15" 1080p screen, and toting 6GB of RAM, it is a pretty decent phone. The dual-camera setup on the back of the Honor 9 is similar to that on the iPhone 7 Plus, with a dedicated 2x optical zoom lens on one sensor. You'll be able to pick it up in two different sizes, 64GB and 128GB, and all for just 2299/2999 yuan, which works out to around $340 and $440. Read More
