Honor has been prolific with new releases (and re-releases) recently, flooding the market with value models at attractive Huawei price tags to compete with brands that have access to Google’s mobile ecosystem. Yesterday, Honor introduced the entry-level 9A which is expected to go on sale in Europe on July 1 and is expected to arrive soon to other countries.

In the same line as the other recent launches, the Honor 9A seems to be yet another clone-looking device that the company is churning based on the same blueprint.

The 9A features a notch-interrupted Honor display, an oversized rectangle-shaped camera island, and a rear-facing panel painted in the classic Midnight Black, Ice Green, and the new-fangled Phantom Blue. The black edition has a matte finish to it, while the blue and green versions gleam under the light.

Honor's 9A is a phablet, the display stretches 6.3” diagonally while delivering an HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The bezels surrounding it have a modern, slim profile, and the overall build weighs 185g. The camera setup on the rear uses a 13MP f/1.8 primary camera, a 5MP wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera has an 8MP selfie sensor behind it. A standard fingerprint reader sits next to the camera.

MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset handles all the processing on the 9A by Honor— rounded off by 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable to 512GB with a microSD card. Its 5,000 mAh battery charges over a previous-gen micro-USB and lacks any support for fast charging.

Honor will be shipping the 9A with Magic UI 3.1 (based on the latest Android 10 and HMS), and it will start from $169 (~28,000 PKR). The Honor 9A will debut in Europe, from where it will head to other Asian markets, possibly including Pakistan.
