In terms of looks and design, while there are certain elements from the previous flagship, Honor 8, that Honor 9 retains, there are also a whole lot of design changes in the phone. The Honor 9 comes with an all-glass back encased in a metal frame. The glass back gives the phone a highly glossy finish. The fingerprint sensor shifts from the rear to the front in the form of a physical home button. The phone also comes with a dual rear camera on the back. The front houses the display and the selfie camera along with the sensors. The phone does not come in a bezel-less design, though the bezels are considerably slimmer in the Honor 9.

Much before the launch, the phone has already been listed on multiple European e-commerce portals. The Russian portal Hi-Tech Mail listed the basic version of the Honor 9 and revealed the pricing just a few hours before launch. Additionally, the phone has also been listed on Amazon Germany and Amazon UK. Honor, that was initially accepting pre-registrations of the Honor 9 has now closed the registrations. The phone is expected to be available for sale almost immediately post launch. The European pricing is similar to the China pricing. ALSO READ: Honor 8 Pro hands-on and first impressions
