The Honor 9 is upon us, once again bringing top-tier performance and design to a more affordable price point — in the UK, just £379. When it comes to specs, you're mostly looking at Huawei P10-level innards, with one or two exceptions.
That means you get Huawei's high-end Kirin 960 octa-core processor, with 4 or 6GB of RAM depending on where you buy, and an ample 64GB of storage. And there's a capable dual camera setup around the back — 12MP plus 20MP, with laser autofocus.
The top-level differences between the P10 and Honor 9: No OIS in the RGB sensor of the main camera, no Super Charging support — instead just regular 9V/2A quick charge — and fewer radio bands, meaning the European Honor 9 doesn't have band coverage for U.S. LTE. (Sorry, importers!)
In any case, here's your complete Honor 9 spec sheet. For more on Honor's latest phone, check out our hands-on preview!

Got the answer I was looking for in this article. Thanks. Unfortunately it won't be a good phone too import to the US. Shame.
