Honor officially launches the Honor 9X and 9X Pro in China

It’s been a couple of weeks since we reported rumors of the Honor 9X, and now we have the official release news for you.

By shifting to pop-up front cameras, Honor’s latest additions – the Honor 9X and 9X Pro - became their first phones to boast bezel and notch-less displays. As such, both phones will feature 6.59-inch All-View displays that have a 92% screen-to-body ratio.

Both will be equipped with a 48 MP rear camera that’s matched with a 2 MP depth camera bokeh effects, but the 9X Pro will have an additional 8MP wide-angle camera for wider vistas or better group shots in tight spaces. For better night shots, the Honor 9X series phones will also use ½-inch sensors for better sensitivity in low light.

Powered by the Kirin 810 chipset, both 9X series phones will offer powerful performance and next-generation AI features thanks to its proprietary NPU which improves AI performance while reducing energy consumption. The use of GPU Turbo 3.0 technology further optimizes energy consumption by providing better balance between image processing performance and energy efficiency while gaming.

The 9X series phones will support about 10 hours of game-play or 10 hours of online video playback thanks to a 4,000mAh battery. AI Smart Communication 2.0 technology has also been implemented to better maintain a steady internet connection.

Available now in China, the HONOR 9X comes in 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB, and 6GB+128GB. The HONOR 9X PRO comes in 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB. Prices start from RMB 1399 and RMB 2199 respectively.
