Honor 9A price leaked one day before official launch
Honor 9A could be priced at Rs 11,999
Honor 9A, Honor 9S and Honor MagicBook 15 to launch on July 31
Honor 9A price has been leaked by Amazon India as the listing of the phone went live ahead of the official launch scheduled on July 31. Honor is also bringing its first laptop in India and is launching the MagicBook 15 alongside the Honor 9A and Honor 9S tomorrow. The listing revealed that the Honor 9A is priced at Rs 11,999 on Amazon where it is expected to go on sale during the Amazon Prime Day.
The Honor 9A was announced back in April for Russia and comes with Honor Mobile Services instead of Google’s suite of apps and services. The Amazon India listing was spotted by the eagle-eyed folks over at FoneArena who also supplemented their report with a screenshot of the Amazon listing. Honor could only launch one variant of the 9A as it has done in other markets and it is likely to retail for Rs 11,999 in India.
