The Huawei Honor 9 Youth Edition is scheduled to be released on Thursday this week. Earlier this month, the specs and price of this device surfaced online. However, a new listing on China Telecom’s website reveals a price which is different from earlier speculation. From earlier rumors, the Huawei Honor 9 Youth Edition would cost 1,299 Yuan (~$196) and 1599 Yuan (~$242). Also, it has been speculated that since the base model of the Honor 9 cost 2,299 Yuan, the two models of the Youth Edition would cost 1,799 Yuan (~$272) and 2,199 Yuan (~$332).
Nevertheless, China Telecom reveals that the 4GB + 32GB model will sell for 1,999 Yuan (~$302) while the 4GB + 64GB variant will go for 2,399 Yuan (~$363). It is quite surprising that there was no mention of the earlier rumored 3GB RAM variant.
This smartphone is a lower version of Huawei Honor 9 which was released earlier this year. It comes with plastic borders and glass front. Rumors have it that this device will be powered by a Kirin 659 chipset. It will be equipped with a 5.65-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a display resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. In the camera department, both sides of this device will come the same with dual cameras which is a 13MP shooter supported by a 2MP sensor.
