    Personally, i think that they would release it in the USA but... date unknown...it could be that they are trying to work out a carrier deal.

    Me too. They made it seem like maybe, maybe not but I think that was to build anticipation. Also that phone is selling really well so maybe it's not as much of a risk releasing it in the US?

    I think that an unlocked release,similar to the honor 8 in the USA is going to do as well as the Honor 8 release... Which is not very well.

    They could really push marketing if they wanted to but that's big bucks that i am not sure that they want to spend at this time without immediate return...

    Honor 9 will be even better than honor 8! I hope it release before iPhone release.

    I hope so too. Coming during iPhone mania would give it veey little press as iPhone gets all the sootli around the time of its release.
    I think that coming out before the iPhone and offering a worry free trial would do wonders to help iPhone sales.

    I would hope so. They don't want to get stuck in iPhone mania season as they won't get much press. I think offering the honor 9 with a worry free trial could really be an incentive to get people to try it out and, keep it if they are happy

    I agree completely. I'm going to buy one for my Mom but just like the Honor 8 I don't think there's a market, from an unlocked standpoint.

    That would be an awesome plan, what they should also do along with that is feature one of the iOS themes from XDA to help sell it as a familiar yet better version for the iPhone.

    Ooh that's a great idea! Or better yet pre install an iPhone setup and let the consumer choose upon initial setup.

    That would be awesome. They could probably gain a good bit of ground by getting the developer community directly involved as well.

    I probably will end up buying both iPhone 8 and honor 9 (maybe honor 8 pro). I need to save tons of money now

    They could do something like skins for Samsung devices where there are third party defelopers who make them

    Unfortunately the chances of that coming to the USA are virtually nil.

    You can contact places that sell international unlocked phones with warranty like b&h and see if they will get the honor 8 pro. If enough people commit then they might be willing to get it

    It is unlikely, but doesn't really hurt to try and should take just a few minutes. If you are interested then you can send them a quick message here:

    Hard to say. I mean the att deal is supposed to be for a Huawei phone. It's still possible for them to release an Honor phone...

    If they make a deal, I'm sure they'll sell their more affordable lines as well

    I don't know why they don't hit up Sprint. Sprint literally will carry any phone. The only ones to offer the HTC U11, first to offer the essential phone. Sprint is all about saving money seems like it would be a no brainer to launch make the honor brand available through Sprint. Being that they are owned by a Japanese company, I feel that it would be easy to accomplish that task.

    Sprint might ask for an exclusivity deal, which could be a deal breaker. They might not want to lock themselves into a fourth rate carrier.
