Honor has finally internationally launched the Honor 9X smartphone, starting with select markets in Europe. The global version of the handset comes with a slightly different set of specifications than the Chinese counterpart of the same. In Europe, the Honor 9X has been launched with the HiSilicon Kirin 710F processor, instead of the Kirin 810 chipset that powers the handset’s Chinese model. Also, the global variant features a triple camera setup, instead of the dual lenses found on the original model. Notably, the international Honor 9X variant has borrowed a few features from the Honor 9X Pro, but without the Pro moniker.
Honor 9X global variant specifications and features
Apart from a different SoC and a triple rear camera system, the rest of the specs of the international Honor 9X are similar to the Chinese variant. The phone has a 48MP primary camera at the back with f/1.8 aperture, which is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP shooter for depth sensing to let you capture bokeh photos. For selfies, the device has a 16MP snapper that comes out of the top of the handset whenever you need it.
Talking about the other features, the Honor 9X has a 6.59-inch IPS LCD display bearing a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels. The smartphone comes in two RAM and storage configurations – 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB. Both the models also support microSD cards up to 512GB in size for further storage expansion. Software-wise, the Honor 9X boots Android 9 Pie with EMUI custom skin on top. The connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, and A-GPS with GLONASS. A 4,000mAh battery keeps the whole package running.
The Honor 9X will be coming to India by the end of this year, as announced by the company’s President Charles Peng recently. Peng also revealed that the phone will be available with Android OS in the country.
