Honor 9 pre-sale starts in Finland, to cost 499

Huawei announced the Honor 9 in China on Monday. A separate European event will take place in Berlin, Germany on June 27 and sales will start three days after.

Yet pre-orders have already started in Finland, where the 4 GB RAM version with 64 GB internal storage can be booked 499. The mightier 6 GB RAM + 128 GB internal storage option goes for 599.

Mika Engblom, Consumer Unit Director at Huawei Finland, says the phone lands so early in the country because of Honors popularity among Finns.

The new flagship comes with a better chipset, greater cameras, and larger battery than the Honor 8. The Honor 9 runs the Android 7.0 Nougat with latest EMUI 5.1 on top.

The colors available are Seagull Grey and Charm Sea Blue.
