Against the background of other expensive top-end novelties of the Chinese company, the price of Huawei Honor Note 9 will pleasantly surprise you: most likely, you will be able to buy a huge smartpad with a 6.6-inch screen and the top-end hardware can be around $ 500.
To some, of course, even such a value of Honor Note 9 may seem overestimated. However, do you know a lot of smartphones with such a huge display, 6 GB of RAM and a powerful modern processor?
The only thing that comes to mind is that Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus released in April this year, and only one of its modifications (or rather two, because there are different chipsets – Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835), which has 6 Gb of RAM. However, it is sold in literally in several countries and costs almost twice as much.
It should also be noted that at the time of its entry into the market, the new Honor Note 9 will in fact be Huawei’s most advanced flagship:
- The new powerful HiSilicon Kirin 965 processor (overclocked version of the Kirin 960)
- 6 GB fast RAM LPDDR4x
- Built-in storage capacity of 64/128 Gb on high-speed chips UFS 2.1
- A huge screen with a diagonal of 6.6 inches and a resolution of QHD 1440 × 2560 pixels
- A very impressive battery with a capacity of 4600 mAh
And all this for 500 US dollars. Yes, even for 550-600. Yes, Huawei Honor Note 9 will not have optics from the legendary German Leica, but in fact it is more of a “marketing Ponte”, which significantly improves the quality of the images.
As for the value of the future Honor Note 9 in few countries other than US, it is currently difficult to predict. At the moment, the others market is not a priority for Huawei, it is now much more important to promote its products in Europe and the United States.
In addition, the company clearly wants to insure itself against possible fluctuations in the ruble exchange rate, and will lay the “insurance” in the price of Huawei Honor Note 9.
