Honor 9 might be announced on June 27 after all, at least for Europe

Huawei’s online-only sub-brand is almost ready to launch its latest flagship smartphone, the Honor 9. This should serve as the successor to the Honor 8 from 2016, and we’ve recently heard a rumor saying it would become official either on June 20 or June 21.

While that may still be the case for China, the European launch could in fact be a separate event. And the invite for this has just been outed today. You can see it to the left. It clearly announces an important Honor-related unveiling as taking place on June 27 in Berlin, Germany. Hence why we speculate that this is when the Honor 9 will be introduced in Europe.

The phone should “light up the night”, according to Huawei, which makes us think there will be improvements to low-light photography compared to its predecessor.

Past rumors and leaks had the Honor 9 sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, the Kirin 960 chipset, 32 or 64GB of storage, 4 or 6GB of RAM, a 20 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup, and no 3.5mm headset jack. Price-wise expect something similar to the Honor 8, so 399 unlocked and SIM-free in Eurozone countries, for the entry-level version.
