Preorders started to be accepted in early April in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.[5][6] The phone formally launched on April 20, 2017.[7] In the United Kingdom, the phone was made available for pre-order from Huawei's vmall store.[3][7] Honor planned to sell the phone throughout Europe, but not within Australia or the United States, as of May 2017.[8][9][10]
