Sometimes waiting for the right price on something is the best course of action. Perhaps you’ve been waiting for the right price on the Huawei Mate 9 and the Huawei Honor 6X? Well, today might be your day. Huawei has announced a drop in price for the Mate 9 as well as the Honor 6X. These are two different smartphones but both really solid players. The Mate 9 is a mid-range phone with a more premium build and better specs. The Honor 6X is a slightly less spectacular budget phone but still is fairly impressive for the price tag.
Huawei announced a $100 USD price cut on the 9 while the 6X is getting a $50USD price cut. That brings the Mate 9 down from $599.99 USD to $499.99 USD and the Honor 6X down from $249.99 USD to $199.99 USD. These deals can be had at Best Buy and they’re really super prices on these smartphones but as usual, Amazon may be the better route to go. Currently, as of this article, Amazon has the 9 priced at $459.99 USD and the 6X at $174.99 USD.
