Honor launches the Honor 9X Pro, a Kirin 810-powered handset with a 48 MP camera and a 4,000 mAh battery
Touted as an "all-rounder for extraordinary experiences", the company's All-Scenario Intelligence Conference is the first time that we have seen the Honor 9X Pro outside of China. A Chinese exclusive since August last year, the Honor 9X Pro features a Kirin 810, a 7 nm SoC that integrates an ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU and eight CPU cores. Honor complements the chipset with 256 GB of UFS 2.1 storage and 6 GB of RAM. It is worth noting that Honor sells the 9X Pro with 8 GB of RAM in China and offers the choice between 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.
The Honor 9X Pro also includes a 6.59-inch IPS "FullView" display, which operates natively at 2,340 x 1,080. The display has a pixel density of 391 PPI too and is TÜV Rheinland-certified. Underpinning the display is a 4,000 mAh battery that supports up to 10 W charging via its USB 2.0 Type-C port. Incidentally, the device features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, too.
One of the highlights of the Honor 9X Pro is its cameras. The device features three rear-facing sensors and a 16 MP motorised pop-up front-facing camera. Honor has equipped the 9X Pro with a 48 MP main rear-facing sensor, which has an f/1.8 aperture and a pixel size of 1.6 μm. There is also an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle f/2.4 sensor that has a 120° field of view, and a 2 MP depth sensor.
The 9X Pro will cost €249 and will be available "starting March". The Honor 9X Pro will ship in either Midnight Black or Phantom Purple and will run EMUI 9.1 and HMS out of the box. The device will not come with Google Services preinstalled.
