It also qualifies customers for benefits on Huawei's streaming services, such as a month of Huawei Music for free, 15GB of storage space on Huawei Cloud for a year, and 3 film vouchers redeemable at Huawei Video.

The new Honor 9A, previously available only in Russia, comes particularly cheap at £129.99 – which is appropriate for a phone with modest specs.

You get a 13Mp main camera, 5Mp ultrawide, 2Mp depth and an 8Mp selfie-cam along with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage (expandable to 512GB). Yet you also get a whopping 5,000mAh battery, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and a 3.5mm headphone jack – features that can undoubtedly sway anyone looking for a decent handset without parting with hundreds of pounds. Read all about the device and what to expect in our guide.

Pre-orders on the Honor 9A start 1 July directly from Honor and other retailers, including Amazon. Honor is giving away ten 9A devices for free which you can apply for here.
