Honor has announced their brand new smartphone that costs below RM600. The Honor 9A is the latest phone that comes without Google services, but it has got plenty to offer in other departments, most notably its big battery.
There’s a 5,000mAh unit on the Honor 9A with a rated talk time of up to 33 hours for 4G calls, 35 hours of video playback and 37 hours of FM radio playback. The device also gives you a 6.3-inch, 720p dewdrop-notched display, a triple-camera array consisting of a 13MP main shooter, a 5MP ultra-wide lens and 2MP depth sensor – along with a 8MP selfie counterpart – as well as things like a back-mounted fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack. And then there’s the microUSB port, which we thought we have almost seen the last of in 2020.
Running on Magic UI 3.1 based on Android 10, the Honor 9A is powered by the Mediatek Helio P22 chipset. You will find 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which you can further expand to 512GB with a microSD card.
The newly-announced phone is coming to Malaysia sooner than you think. Priced at RM549, you will be able to get one in a choice of Midnight Black or Phantom Blue from June 26 online at Hihonor, Shopee and Lazada. It will subsequently hit local store shelves on July 6, for which you can secure a unit by pre-ordering from Honor Experience Stores and selected partner stores and collect it on release day.
Both online and pre-order purchases will come together with RM218-worth of free gifts which are the Honor backpack, water bottle and 15GB on Huawei Cloud. On the other hand, customers who purchase the phone in-store will get Honor water bottle and free 15GB on Huawei Cloud.
