Honor 9A now available, complete with freebies .. but no Google Play

This is the all-new Honor 9A. It’s an entry-level smartphone but comes with some very decent specs, including Android 10, a 6.3″ 1600x720p screen, 3GB RAM, a 5000 mAh battery, a triple megapixel rear camera arrangement and 64GB of on-board storage that can be boosted with microSD storage.

We covered the Honor 9A here. It’s cheap, it’s got very decent specs (for the price) and they’re throwing in a load of freebies (choose either a pair of Bluetooth Earphones, an Honor Mini Speaker or an Honor Band 5)… however, it doesn’t have Google Play, YouTube, Chrome, Gmail, Maps and so on.

Even at the ultra-cheap price of £129.99 and even with the freebies, the lack of familiar apps (the replacement “App Gallery” has no-where near the apps you’d expect) is going to be a major turn-off for customers.

The phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek CPU, and has a 13 megapixel standard rear lens, a 5 megapixel wide-angle one and a 2 megapixel depth shooter. It also gets an 8 megapixel selfie camera. Other features include a 3.5mm audio port, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 5000 mAh battery.

The offers are available until July 14th. Head here for the details.
