Huawei confirms global launch of Honor 9 and Honor Band 3
Huawei unveiled the Honor 9 a few weeks ago in China and yesterday, just as promised, they also revealed the details on the global availability and pricing of this handset during an event that took place in Berlin. Unfortunately, there is still no word on the US launch of this handset, although the Honor 8 was promoted and sold in the US.
The new Honor handset is powered by the Kirin 960 processor that also drives the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, also featuring a 5.15-inch full HD display, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage and microSD support, as well as a 12 MP + 20 MP dual camera setup. This smartphone runs Android Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top and comes in Glacier Gray, Sapphire Blue, and Midnight Black.
The Honor Band 3 is a fitness tracker with a battery life of up to 30 days that weighs just 18 grams and features a 0.91-inch PMOLED display with 128X32 pixels.
While the fitness band has a price tag of €69 EUR (roughly $78 USD), the 4 GB/64 GB Honor 9 comes for €449 EUR - about $511 USD. A variant with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage is also expected to show up later this year, but its price and launch date are still unknown.
