The curtain has been lifted; Honor has finally unveiled its much-awaited Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro smartphones. They two devices are the successor of last year’s Honor 8X (Review) and will be launching in Pakistan in the coming weeks.
Let’s review the main features of the two smartphones:
Design & Display
Both devices come with bezel-less displays without any notch or a cutout. The design of Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro is quite similar and it is harder to tell them apart by simply looking at them.
The only difference when it comes to the design of the two phones is the camera arrangement. The standard variant comes with two cameras and a flash in a vertical stack while the Pro model replaces the flash’s position with a third camera.
The Chinese smartphone maker has also introduced a unique X-shaped gradient design which makes the smartphones stand out from the rest of the company’s products. Honor also offers a simple black variant for users who do not prefer a flashy phone.
The handsets also come with 6.6 inches of IPS LCD displays with FullHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution. They also have minimum bezels at the sides and a small chin at the bottom of the display.
Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro are powered by the same an octa-core Kirin 810 chipset built on 7nm process technology. The standard variant comes with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage while the Pro model boasts an 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. They also have the same 4000mAh battery and a USB Type C charging port.
With Honor 9X series, the smartphone manufacturer has finally dipped its toes in the pop-up selfie camera world and offers 16MP, f/2.2 elevating camera at the top.
At the back, Honor 9X features 48MP main camera and 2MP depth sensor for photography while the Pro variant comes with an additional 8MP ultra-wide lens.
The smartphones will be available in China from 9th August and we have to wait and see when the company will introduce them in Pakistan.
