Honor Malaysia has just deployed their latest phone in Malaysia that they’ve dubbed the Honor 9X which aims to offer a fair blend of performance at a price that doesn’t bust your cheque book.
The Honor 9X has a novel ‘X’ gradient mirrored finish in two different colours – Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue. It comes with a 6.59-inch Fullview LCD display with 2,340 x 1080 pixel resolution.
Instead of a notch, the phone integrates a pop-up 16-MP F/2.2 selfie camera to offer more screen real estate. Of note is that the selfie camera can take up to 15 kilos of stress so you can presumably hold your shopping or a good sized backpack just on the pop-up camera housing alone.
In terms of hardware, the phone sports a Kirin 710F chipset built on a 12nm processor and comes with their latest EMUI 9.1 on Android 9 with the full range of Google services available. It also has 6GB RAM and 128GB of expandable storage with support for up to 512GB microSD cards.
The rear comes with a rounded fingerprint reader and a triple camera array that consists of a 48-MP F/1.8 primary camera with AI video stabilisation, a secondary 8-MP wide angle camera and a 2-MP depth sensor. Both the front and rear can capture 1080P video with the rear capping at 60fps and the front at 30fps. Keeping it powered is a 4,000mAh battery via a Type-C charging port.
