There are 'no plans' to bring the Honor 9 to the US

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro Huawei Honor 8 Lite priced at Rs 17999 combines style and substance

Here was a phone that looked nearly as good as the Samsung Galaxy S7, yet cost less than £400. It is unknown at the moment whether Russian Federation will receive other color variants of the Honor 9. Underneath that shiny skin, it's practically identical to the P10, with the same beefy Kirin 960 CPU, same EMUI skin running on top of Android 7, and same 1080p resolution. The front camera on the handset is an 8 megapixel camera. In fact, if the Honor 8 Pro can undercut the OnePlus 5 in terms of price, it may be very well be placed to take over the mantle of the genuine Android flagship smartphone alternative.

The OnePlus 5 sells for $479 in the U.S.

That's no surprise, Honor is part of Huawei, after all, but usually Honor's flagship gets a small downgrade to avoid eating into sales of it's more premium and more expensive brother. There are other colours on offer, of course, but this Sapphire Blue is the nicest-looking.

The Honor 8 Pro sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD 2K display, picking up an edge over the OnePlus 5.

According to the Twitter post, the Honor 9 (4GB/64GB variant) was priced at €429 in Germany, with an option for €30 cashback - bringing it down to just €399 overall. The slot for the microSD card is of the hybrid kind, but customers can afford to use the dual SIM facility with 128GB being adequate to manage their memory requirements.

The one thing that might irk some potential buyers is the position of the fingerprint reader.

Her most recent victory earned her the interim Invicta FC featherweight title, which was later installed to full time champion. Both bouts took place at a catchweight of 140 pounds, with UFC 214 set to be her first trip to the Octagon as a featherweight.

The phone is being identified in China as Honor v9.

Check back soon for our full Honor 9 review to see if this really is the new phone for you.

On the camera front, the smartphone features a dual rear camera with 20MP and 12MP and a dual tone LED flash and an 8MP front snapper. The configuration is slightly different this time around, though. Honor claims the device offers HiFi audio quality.

Despite the change in tack, the camera still operates in a similar way to its predecessors' snapper. The phone's software algorithm then merges both the images into one and creates the final photo.

The Honor 9 comes in a selection of handpicked shades inspired by leading fashion trends. The capabilities of the monochrome lens, coupled with feature such as pixel binning, enables the Honor 9 to deliver industry-leading low-light photography.
