Honor is definitely not wasting time. While Honor 9 (our test) has just come out, the Chinese brand already offers a more powerful version.
We already knew this, but the old continent represents a privileged challenge for Honor. The Chinese sees in fact a favorable ground for its smartphones medium / high-end, offered at a price more aggressive than its prestigious competitors.
The brand has chosen to launch the Honor 9 Premium in Europe, as it has already been available in Italy and Switzerland for a few days. In order to adapt to the clientele, Honor 9 is available in several versions. The first is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage while the second has 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of ROM. Yet only the first model is available.
Rebranding of the best version
This may be the reason why this Premium alternative is coming today. It is actually the best-equipped version, already available in China.
So there is a configuration based on a Kirin 960 chip, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. You will enjoy a 5.15 inch Full HD IPS panel and a dual sensor. The first is monochrome (20 megapixels) and the second is a RGB of 12 megapixels. It is possible to capture videos in 4K.
No official date has yet been announced in France, but it will not be long. It will be necessary to count on a tariff around the 470 euros. In other words, the quality / price ratio remains good.
