Huawei’s subsidiary brand Honor has launched the all-new Honor 9X today, in India. The Honor 9X launched in India is, however, a bit different compared to the variant that was launched in China a few months ago. First of all, this Global Variant of Honor 9X comes with Google apps and services, so that users don’t need to worry at all about losing any Google services or functionalities offered by Google. Also, the Honor 9X Global Variant comes with a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone, whereas the Chinese variant of Honor 9X comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The phone sports a 6.59-inch full-HD+ display with a pixel density of 391ppi. The screen-to-body ratio is pretty impressive here at 91%. The phone is powered by Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 710F SoC paired with up to 6GB of RAM. The Chinese variant comes with a better Kirin 810 7nm SoC. There are two variants based on RAM- 4GB and 6GB. However, both the variants have 128GB onboard storage and the memory can be expanded up to 512GB using a microSD card.
In terms of camera, the Honor 9X comes with a triple camera setup on the back. There is a 48-megapixel main shooter with an f/1.8 aperture and AIS Super Night mode support. Along with that, there is an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 120° field of view, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait shots. On the front, there is a 16-megapixel pop-up camera for selfies and video calls.
The Honor 9X runs Android 9 Pie out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI skin on top. The phone packs a 4000mAh battery with pretty regular, 10W charging via a USB-C port. Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS, and GLONASS. The 4GB RAM variant of Honor 9X is priced at Rs. 13,999 whereas the 6GB RAM variant is priced at Rs. 16,999. The Honor 9X is available in two colors- Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue.
