On July 23, Honor will be introducing the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro smartphones in China. The Honor 9X has already appeared with its entire specifications on TENAA, but the Pro model is yet to surface on the database of the telecom authority. The Honor 9X Pro is up for reservations in China. The reservations page of the phone on Vmall has an image that showcases its front and rear design. However, the leaked images released by MySmartPrice offers a clearer look at the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro.
The Honor 9X has a black colored rear that seems to be made out of glass. It has a vertical camera unit at the top-left corner which houses two camera sensors and an LED flash. The “48 MP AI Camera” text can be seen alongside the camera module.
On the other side, the Honor 9X Pro has a gradient purple colored glass rear that features an X-shaped pattern. The “48 MP AI Camera” text is also seen besides the triple camera setup of the phone. Reports surrounding the Honor 9X series have claimed that the major difference between the two phones is that the Pro model features an extra camera on its rear. The Honor 9X features a 48-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera setup. The Pro edition may come with 48-megapixel + 8-meapixel + 2-megapixel triple camera system.
The Honor 9X has a 6.59-inch IPS LCD display that offers full HD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Kirin 810 chipset powers the smartphone with up to 8 GB of RAM. The highest configuration model of the phone will be featuring 256 GB of internal storage. The EMUI based Android 9 Pie OS will come preloaded on the device. The handset will be packed with a 4,000mAh battery. On July 23, Honor is expected to announce the Honor Band 5 alongside the Honor 9X and 9X Pro smartphones.
