Honor renews its online store and brings to Europe a trio of entirely new products: the Magic Watch 2 watch, the Magic Earbuds headphones, and a mobile phone, the 9X Pro. All three presented in February with the online celebration of the Mobile World Congress, but until now, they had not landed officially in our country.
This triple release includes the Honor 9X Pro mobile phone, a mid-range mobile with exciting features; Honor Magic Earbuds headphones with hybrid active noise cancellation; and the Honor Magic Watch 2 smartwatch that offers more than a week of autonomy and precise monitoring during sports.
These three products will make their grand appearance on June 12, and for several days in a row, they will have up to 60% discount on prices and some gifts included in the purchase. In addition, honor VIP members will automatically get an additional discount of up to 5% when they log in and shop at the Honor store.
Huawei 9X Pro, from 249 euros
The first of the products Honor brings to the stores in Europe this month is the Honor 9X Pro mobile phone, which we were able to test for a few minutes in February. It is a mid-range smartphone that meets most of the specifications already standardized in this price range, where the most notable is the lack of Google applications.

Honor is committed to striking designs with vibrant colors and comfortable dimensions for use. The first thing that stands out about this phone is its 6.59-inch screen with Full HD + resolution (2,340 x1,080 pixels) that occupies much of the front with a screen ratio of 92%.
The front camera is hidden inside the phone and appears with a pop-up mechanism when turning on the application. At the same time, the rear cameras are placed vertically in the case. They are three, and they are presided over by a 48 Mpx sensor with stabilization to record video.
Inside, it is run by a Kirin 810 processor, with 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage with a microSD card. It also has liquid cooling to appease the heat caused by its continued use.
But if something conditions this smartphone above its characteristics. For example, the lack of Google applications is due to the legal battle that Huawei is waging with the United States. So instead, we can use the apps from the Huawei store.
The launch price is 199.9 euros and will remain between May 12 and 14, then grows to its official estimate of 249.9 euros, which is presented in February.
Huawei Honor Magic Earbuds, from 99.90 euros
In second place come the brand new headphones with active noise cancellation. They are wireless headphones designed for activities but mainly for sports. Very similar in design to Apple’s AirPods Pro. Furthermore, the company ensures that its hybrid active noise cancellation system offers the same results as the headphones on the block.
They have three microphones to cancel outside noise as much as possible, even if we are on an airplane or listening to music on a terrace with a lot of traffic noise. And they integrate 10mm drivers to offer excellent audio quality.
On the other hand, according to company data, the Magic Earbuds’ battery is 3 hours if we answer calls or 3.5 hours if we focus on listening to music. In addition, the box for storing and charging both devices offers a charge of 13 hours of music or 12 hours of calls.
Between May 12 and 19, these headphones will be on sale for the first buyers who can purchase them for 79.9 euros, and then it will set the price at 99.9 euros.
Huawei Magic Watch 2, from 169.90 euros
Finally, the company presents its latest smartwatch, the renewal of the previous model, which we have already had the opportunity to test thoroughly in this analysis. The Honor Magic Watch 2 is a comfortable and easy-to-wear watch that accurately measures the most popular sports activities and sleep quality. So to run, walk, swim, or do some sport indoors.
We can choose between the smaller 42mm version and the one we tested. And a somewhat larger 46mm version that includes some more premium features. Such as the larger battery and offers a range of more than a week. Still, both models are pretty complete, although we miss the NFC technology to be able to pay with the watch.
The price of this watch will be different depending on the size and color version we choose. Like the other products presented today by Honor in Europe, there will be an offer on May 12 and 19. Also, with the purchase of the smaller version, those days will give away the Honor Sport Bluetooth Earphones.
