The Honor 9 flagship with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage is allegedly coming to Europe as Honor 9 Premium. The price depends on the market and retailer but is expected to fall in the $520-$580 USD range.

Huawei's Honor 9 was unveiled with three memory/storage options - 4 GB/64 GB, 6 GB/64 GB, and 6 GB/128 GB. In Europe, only the first one is available right now, but the top-of-the-line variant is expected to hit the area soon. However, it looks like this would happen using a different name - Honor 9 Premium.

The Honor 9 Premium can already be acquired in Italy, and some Swiss retailers apparently have it up for pre-order as well. The Italian carrier selling it only has it tied to a postpaid plan, so there is no retail price to mention. However, in Switzerland this handset goes for around €450 EUR - roughly $518 USD.

Leaving the memory and storage space aside, the rest of the specs remain unchanged - HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, 5.15-inch full HD display, dual-camera setup (20 MP b/w + 12 MP color), 3,200 mAh battery. Since the regular Honor 9 retails for around $520 USD in most European markets, the Premium edition will probably go for a bit more. We will get back to it as soon as it reaches more markets, so if you live in the area and would like to get this handset, stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
