We like the Honor 9 but this new colour option pushes the aesthetic boldly builds on the previously debuted Glacier Grey.
Honor also showcased its industry-leading products, namely Honor 9, Honor 8 Pro, and Honor Magic.
Robin Egg Blue for Honor 9
According to the Pantone Colour Institute, “when 80% of human experience is filtered through the eyes, we understand that the choice of colour is critical.”
I have never seen this colour on a phone before so it will certainly stand out.
I guess that this also fits in with Honor’s brand spirit and design philosophy.
They do make a point of encouraging the young to be brave and express themselves. So, experimenting in life and playing with possibilities does sit well with this unusual colour choice. Individuality is probably the key word here.
I like what I can tell from the pictures. It would be better if I can get my hands on a device though #hint 😉
I bet it looks stunning in the Honor 9’s gorgeous 15 layer 3D glass back when it catches the light.
George Zhao, President of Honor enthused:
The products displayed at IFA 2017 represent Honor’s commitment of providing the state-of-the-art products to young generations. The Honor 9 is a trend-setter in smartphone design, the Honor 8 Pro is a solid performer and all-rounder, and the Honor Magic represents a bold step in exploring future technology. They were born within the Honor family to meet every aspect of the lifestyle and evolving needs of our young customers,”
