According to some rumors, the premium of Honor 9 will set to European market. If this rumor is true, it would be the third variant of the phone offering to consumers. There were previously two versions hitting the market- the first one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and another with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. According to some reports, this new model will boost the amount of the internal storage to double over the other two models while still keeping the RAM amount at 6GB with the additional pricing for only €50, which brings its end cost to about €450.
Although there has not yet to be any confirmation whether it’s called the Honor 9 Premium or not, the rest of specs and hardware are likely to remain the same. So the “premium” tag here only refers to the doubled storage amount. Storage is a quite expensive aspect for any smartphone, so only charging €50 to get the doubled amount of hard drive space is a good deal for consumers who are caring about the Honor 9.
Although we’re not sure if there is more color option for Honor 9 Premium, it absolutely offers the four standard different colors, including Blue, Black, Gold, and a Silver/Grey color. Honor has reportedly sold over 1 million pre-orders for its Honor 9 just in the first month that it went up for presale, so it’s hopeful the Premium version will help Honor push up the sales higher. Apart from the 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, the Honor 9 Premium still features the same 5.2-inch Full HD display, and runs on developed in-house Kirin 960 octa-core chipset under the hood. The device will pre-install Android 7.0 Nougat version with Huawei’s EMUI v5.1 custom layout on top, and be powered by a 3,200mAh battery. The phone comes with a dual camera setup at the back with two 20MP+12MP sensors, and a 8MP front-facing camera. As Honor hasn’t confirmed the launch date of this premium variant, we are not sure about the exact price.
