Starting with the Honor 9X Pro, which will be available from Wednesday, May 21. Normally, it will cost £250, but during the first week of sales it will go for £200 instead.
It will be joined by the Honor 9X Lite (£200) and Honor 20e (£160), both available starting on the 21st. If you're wondering why you might want the 9X Lite when you can have the Pro for the same cash, the answer is a free Honor Band 5 (worth £30).
The band is also bundled with the Honor 20 lite The phone's normal price is £190, but it's down to £170 if you buy it by May 28. This phone almost identical to the 20e, but with a better selfie camera.
Still, do have a look at the Pro, it adds an ultrawide camera and a faster chipset to the mix. You can check out our review for more details on the phone.
Should the Kirin 810 chipset prove short of your requirements, the Honor 20 Pro has the Kirin 980 plus an 8MP telephoto lens, 4K video capture, 22.5W fast charging and other goodies for £330. This is a temporary discount from its usual £400 price, available between May 21 and 25.
Honor's first TWS headset, the Magic Earbuds, will become available too, priced at £90 (they are €100 on the mainland). The Earbuds have three microphones for Active Noise Cancellation and large drivers.
