As expected, Honor has officially announced Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro at a launch event held in China. Both of these are mid-range smartphones and succeed last year's Honor 8X lineup. The highlight features of these new devices include bezel-less displays and pop-up selfie cameras.
The Honor 9X sports a 6.59-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) LCD display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is a TUV Rheinland certified display which means it will prevent users from bad effects of display's blue right emission. Under the hood, it has a HiSilicon Kirin 810 processor coupled with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. These two variants come with 64GB and 128GB internal storage respectively and support microSD cards too.
The dual rear cameras include a 48-megapixel primary sensor and 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/1.8 aperture. The front camera is a 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture. Some of the camera features include Super Night View 3.0 for improved night shots, AI-powered video stabilization, and HDR support. The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery and it will be running EMUI 9.1.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
As for the Honor 9X Pro, it has similar specifications but with a few changes. It has been released with only 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB internal storage options. It features triple rear cameras with an extra 8-megapixel wide-angle lens. Other than these, all the specifications are exactly the same as the standard model.
