At an event in China a few hours ago, Honor announced the launch of its two newest devices, the Honor 9X and 9X Pro. Notable features include pop-up selfie cameras, a triple rear camera system, fast-charging, and the Kirin 810, Huawei's new mid-range SoC which outperforms the Snapdragon 730. Prices start at US$200.

The Honor X series has been Honor's most commercially successful lineup over the past few years. The Honor 8X sold like hotcakes last year, and Honor will be hoping to build on that achievement wit its newly announced Honor 9X and 9X Pro.

The Honor 9X phones sport 6.59-inch FHD+ displays. Both are LCD panels, of course. Also, they're mostly bezel-less, as Honor has opted for pop-up selfie cameras in place of notches or punch-holes. 

Under the hood is Huawei's new HiSilicon Kirin 810, an SoC that has been benchmarked favorably against Qualcomm's Snapdragon 730. The 9X phones are the first devices in the series to feature Type-C ports. It's good to see Huawei finally matching the competition, especially since Xiaomi already made the switch since the Redmi Note 7. There's fast-charge support. Possibly Huawei 22.5W SuperCharge? That would be necessary since the 9X  and 9X Pro both feature 4000 mAh batteries.

There's a triple camera setup at the back of the 9X Pro: 48 MP main shooter + 8 MP ultra-wide angle lens + 2 MP depth sensor. The regular 9X ditches the ultra-wide angle lens completely.

Other notable features include a side-mounted fingerprint reader, a microSD slot and a 3.5mm jack. The phone is expected to run on EMUI 9.1.1, based on Android Pie.

The Honor 9X comes in three configurations: 4/64 GB (US$203), 6/64 GB (US$232), and 6/128 GB (US$276). The 9X Pro comes in two variants: 8/128 GB (US$320), and 8/256 GB (US$349). The major differences between the two devices appear to be the ultra-wide angle lens, storage, and RAM.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
