Honor 9 Premium with 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM coming to Europe for €455

The Honor 9 is a premium device by itself, so the fact that the Chinese company launched an enhanced version of the flagship and called it Premium is rather weird. The better-featured variant has no less than 6GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage inside.

Since versions with more RAM are usually introduced in China exclusively, it's quite a surprise to find out that Honor will be making the 6GB RAM variant available in other regions as well.

As per Winfuture's report, the so-called Honor 9 Premium has been officially introduced in Italy where the smartphone will be available for purchase exclusively through Tre and 3 carriers.

Even in Switzerland, the Honor 9 Premium went on pre-order, but the flagship won't hit the shelves until August 28 at the earliest. As mentioned earlier, the standard Honor 9 that comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, the Premium model has more storage (128GB) and RAM (6GB). As such, it makes perfect sense to be priced higher than the Honor 9.

The good news is Honor 9 Premium will only be €50 more expensive than the standard model, which puts its outright price at around €450, a very decent amount for a flagship.

It's pretty clear that Honor plans to introduce the enhanced version of Honor 9 in other European countries as well, but not knowing when it will happen is likely to make the waiting annoying for Honor fans.

It feels like Huawei lets the local departments have a bigger say in what models they receive instead of a big master plan from China. That sort of flexibility is a big advantage over the other big Android OEMs.

Can anyone explain why Asia usually get more ram in the phone? Is it just that they expect higher numbers?

Asians are more spec-oriented, that's why.

Asians look at specs more than anything, i swear i have seen people saying Oppo F3 has a better camera than S7 Edge, just because bit has more megapixels
