This will be the first appearance of the phone outside of China, hinting at an eventual arrival to other global markets as well.

The Honor 9N will be with such a name since Honor 9i is already used by the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, launched back in early October 2017 as a Flipkart exclusive. On the inside, The Honor 9N is the exact same phone that is already selling in China - 5.84” LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution and a Kirin 659 chipset. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB storage.
Honor India says to get ready to witness beauty like never before. Hopefully, this means the Honor 9N will be available in all its fancy colors - Jasper Green (or Jade Green), Dream Purple, Magic Night Black or Charm Blue.

beauty? with a notch? people buy it because there are not many other designs out there, not because its good looking...lets hope this ends soon and dont buy this stuff if yo udont like it.
TBH, we should stop buying SD 625 toting phones from any company and kirin 659 toting phones from Huawei, only then will they stop. Like really how much stock did they make... Also kirin 710 is coming. IMO hierarchy should be 450, 632/630, 636, 660 ...
