Honor has finally joined the pop-up camera, bezel-less display trend, launching the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro in China.
These new devices herald the first of their kind for the Huawei sub-brand, and, as usual, both come with attractive designs, prices, and specs headlined by the new Kirin 810 chipset.
The Honor 9X is already up for preorder in China, with shipping set for July 30. The Honor 9X Pro, on the other hand, is scheduled to be released August 9. Here are the prices for both smartphones:
- Honor 9X (4GB/64GB) – ¥1,399 (P10,419 or $203)
- Honor 9X (6GB/64GB) – ¥1,599 (P11,908 or $232)
- Honor 9X (6GB/128GB) – ¥1,899 (P14,142 or $276)
- Honor 9X Pro (8GB/128GB) – ¥2,199 (P16,377 or $320)
- Honor 9X Pro (8GB/256GB) – ¥2,399 (P17,866 or $349)
The new Honor 9X series will compete with midrange phones from the likes of Xiaomi, Redmi, and Realme. Hopefully, it will come to other markets, including the Philippines where Honor also operates, soon enough.
For optics, the Honor 9X has dual cameras — 48 megapixels on the main sensor and 2 megapixels on the depth sensor for edge detection when in Portrait mode. The pop-up selfie camera is 16 megapixels. The Honor 9X Pro steps up to a triple-lens system and adds an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera for panoramas and group shots.
Both phones are also equipped with a 4,000mAh battery backup with USB-C charging. Check out the rest of the specs in our comparison chart below.
