HONOR has long been the go-to mobile brand for those who want a unique phone packed with flagship features, without paying more. The HONOR 9A is its latest masterpiece. Modern and stylish, it's the phone for those who want more, without paying more. Where a lot of entry level phones struggle to provide the great camera, app store experience and overall performance that you crave, HONOR 9A delivers.

Packed with top technology at an irresistible price, 9A steps up the battery life, storage and photography over previous offerings, and gives you access to the App Gallery so you can make it do whatever you need it to do. HONOR 9A is available now in three on-trend colour options: Midnight Black, Phantom Blue and Ice Green.

7 reasons to buy make HONOR 9A your new phone

All-Round Triple Camera: perfect shots every time

1. All-Round Triple Camera

The HONOR 9A's All-round Triple rear camera can take the perfect photo in every setting. The 9A's three lenses give you three options to unleash your creativity. Take sumptuous, 13-megapixel wide-angle shots with the main camera. Get up close with intimate portraits, with natural bokeh effect to really highlight your subject and give a stylish urban edge. 

Our favourite feature, however, is the ability to take massive, 120º super wide-angle images; perfect for urban skylines and beautiful landscapes. At f/2.2, these super wide-angle shots come with automatic distortion correction so what you see in front of you is what you get in the photo. No more contorted buildings or blurred trees.

2. Front Selfie Camera

The 8 megapixel Front Selfie Camera has an f/2.0 lens for perfect selfies every time, anywhere. Just point and shoot. As with the main camera, this breaks the mould of entry level phone cameras by actually being good – fast, responsive and able to deal with all lighting conditions.

5. Massive battery life

A 5000mAh battery gives ultra-long battery life. Take photos, watch movies and stay connected all day without being tied to a plug socket or bulky external battery. In total, HONOR 9A delivers 33 hours of 4G calls, 35 hours of video and 37 hours of music.

6. Enhanced performance

With the brand-new Magic UI 3.1, upgraded App Gallery and Superior Speaker, HONOR 9A is incredibly smart, smooth and slick to use. Add the brilliant camera array and a fantastic sound system – Smart PA for 88db voice output, Huawei Histen 6.0 audio with Party Mode – and HONOR 9A is the complete package. 

With bonus features including 5V1.2A Reverse Charge and a rear-mounted Fingerprint Sensor for security, the HONOR 9A is an entry level phone without the lacklustre or missing features that can blight other more affordable mobiles.

5. Petal Search

Nothing to do with floristry, this search tool finds apps from multiple sources and puts them all in one place for you. Voila: everything you need to enhance your life in one place, all easily searchable. 

Petal Search finds the apps you want, and highlights what you can download – not just from from App Gallery, but also via official links or 3rd party stores. You can even choose to use the web version of apps.

Petal Search also finds apps you've already downloaded from App Gallery (see below), and can be used via an exclusive Find Apps search widget on your home screen. Once installed the Find Apps widget lets you track down apps, images, news and more, all from your home screen.

One of the world’s top app stores (420 million+ users per month), App Gallery is packed with useful and innovative apps for you to explore and download. Pre-installed apps include Huawei Assistant, your AI personal assistant for global search and instant access to apps, personalised news and the SmartCare customer care. 

It's important to know that the apps you download are safe and secure, and so App Gallery uses a 4-layer detection mechanism to ensure its apps are safe to download and use.
