The first sales numbers of the Honor 9 are in. The smartphone, which was announced on June 12, is apparently quite popular among consumers — the company has announced on Twitter that it shipped one million units in exactly 28 days.
Of course, the Honor 9 can’t compare with the Galaxy S8 and a few other devices in terms of sales, but shipping one million units in under a month is still a great achievement. Especially when considering that Honor is not quite as well known on the market as a lot of other brands.
As a refresher, the Honor 9 is a high-end smartphone with an affordable price tag. It sports a 5.15-inch Full HD display with 2.5D glass and is powered by the Kirin 960 chipset. It comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM with either 64 or 128 GB of space. The storage can be expanded up to an additional 256 GB with the help of a microSD card.

The smartphone is equipped with a dual-camera setup on the back that features 20 MP (monochrome) and 12 MP (RGB) sensors. It also has an 8 MP selfie snapper on board, packs a 3,200 mAh battery, and runs Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 on top.
The Honor 9 is also easy on the eyes and made from a combination of metal and glass. It’s available in four color options which are Blue, Amber Gold, Gray, and Black. The version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage is available for €449 on the company’s official online store, while the variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage will be released at a later date.
