Huawei – the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has rumored to launch the Huawei Honor V9 smartphone in China on this Mobile World Congress MWC event 2017. However, it has also been rumored that the phone will sell internationally as an Honor 8 Pro name. But now the Chinese maker has been sending out invites for an April 5 event and launch the phone that event. We have heard rumors of a Europe release before, so it is only logical to assume so. And beside the confusing name change, there is actually a lot to like about the phone. Well, we don’t typically see many high-end devices offers from the online sales, value-first Honor division, but the Honor V9 is definitely an exception.
