Honor has now unleashed its latest on a new market. The Pad 9 brings 12.1 inches of 120Hz 2.5K display to India, backed up by "8 Speaker" sound and a potentially long-lasting battery. It comes with a Bluetooth keyboard stand in the box, yet may compromise in other areas such as performance.

Honor touts the Pad 9 as an ideal all-round tablet, thanks in part to the 8 speaker slits located all around its edge where other Android slates might have 4 at most. Then again, it would blend in among its peers thanks to a large round rear camera hump set in a "premium" metallic unibody shell.

Then again, the OEM is confident that the Pad 9 will captivate potential users with its 12.1-inch display. It could be brighter at 500 nits, yet is touted to work as well for e-books as for videos in up to 2.5K at 120Hz thanks to a TÜV Rheinland-certified eye comfort mode.

Honor asserts that the 8GB Pad 9 can exhibit performance equivalent to a 16GB RAM device thanks to a software-based Extender mode. Nevertheless, the fact is it is driven by a new, 4nm, yet budget-grade Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC, which runs MagicOS 7.2 based on Android 13.

Then again, that may give the tablet a better chance of hitting its 17-hour endurance rating, to be derived from an 8,300mAh battery. Even if it fails that estimate, the Pad 9 does come bundled with its bespoke Bluetooth keyboard case.

That potential total productivity package can be pre-ordered for INR 22,499 (~$269) - or 36% off its RRP - on from now until March 27, 2024.
