Huawei sub-brand Honor sent out media invites to an event on April 5, with current rumors suggesting the launch event could turn out to be the European debut of the Huawei Honor V9. The phone was unveiled in China late last month, and offers exciting specs.

Huawei Honor V9

We don't typically see many high-end offers from the online-sales, value-first Honor division, but the V9 is definitely an exception. It comes with a 5.7-inch, QHD LCD panel, which puts it squarely between the bigger, but lower-res Huawei Mate 9 and the smaller Huawei Mate 10.

The Honor V9 boasts impressive hardware in the form of a Huawei's latest Kirin 960 SoC, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage options, dual 12MP cameras with 1.76-micron pixels, 8MP front camera, IR blaster, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, Wi-Fi ac, USB-C, and a 4000mAh battery. On the software front, the phone runs EMUI 5.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

There is no word on international pricing yet. In China, the Honor V9 is priced at CNY 2,999 ($435 or €413) with 64GB of storage. We can likely expect some price hike over on the old continent.
