Last month Honor launched a Robin-Egg Blue color variant of the Honor 9. Initially, it was thought, this new color variant would be exclusive to the Chinese market.
However, Honor has just unveiled the Robin-Egg Blue colored Honor 9 at the ongoing IFA. The smartphone will go on sale in the UK by mid-September and it will carry a price tag of £459.99 (roughly Rs. 38,000). The company didn't reveal when the device will ship to other countries. It will probably carry the same price tag in other European countries.
The Robin-Egg Blue is sure an eye-catching color, which has not been used on any smartphone earlier. Up front, the upper and lower bezels are in White.
