Honor's latest budget smartphone for the European market has been priced at €150 for the 3GB/64GB version. In the UK, consumers will have to shell out £130 for the Honor 9A. In addition to the official Honor online store, the phone will also be available to pre-order from July 1 via Amazon and other retailers.
The Honor 9A sports a 6.3-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch at the top, housing an 8MP selfie camera. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB storage. On the back of the phone is a triple-camera setup with a 13MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The Honor 9A also features a 5,000mAh battery, which is claimed to deliver up to 35 hours of video playback. On the software front, it runs Honor's Android 10-based Magic UI 3.1.
Honor has also launched a VIP membership program for consumers in the UK, Germany, France, and a few other countries. Those who subscribe to the VIP program until July 1 will be eligible for additional discounts up to 30% on select products, free shipping coupons, priority access to fan events and product testing, 15GB 1-year Huawei Cloud membership, 1-month Huawei Music membership, and 3 film vouchers that can be used to rent movies on Huawei Video.
The new Honor CHOICE true wireless earbuds, which have been launched in Europe alongside the 9A, use 7mm drivers and claim to deliver up to 24 hours of battery life. However, Honor hasn't revealed exactly how much these will cost or when they will be available to purchase in Europe.
