The powerful and eagerly awaited HONOR 9X Pro smartphone has finally landed in the Indian market, bringing fans a smartphone that balances, rather provides, flagship-level power, style, and photography like no other model in its segment. On top of these highlights, the HONOR 9X Pro features an all-new and upgraded app distribution platform for HONOR and Huawei smartphones – the AppGallery. It offers a variety of applications in gaming, health and entertainment genres, and a lot more from across the globe and even at a local level. At a price of just Rs 17,999 (exclusive of some additional discounts and offers for the early birds), the new HONOR 9X Pro is nothing short of a steal! So, let’s find out more about the features that make this smartphone a great mid-ranger.
The HONOR 9X Pro is powered by the Kirin 810 chipset (two Cortext A76 cores running at 2.27GHz + six Cortex A55 cores at 1.88GHz), which is fabricated using the latest 7nm process and is said to deliver a lot better performance over its predecessor. This high-performance chipset also has the Mali-G52 GPU, which promises an astounding graphics performance. And all this is achieved while still efficiently managing the energy consumption – it truly doesn’t get better than this! The 6GB RAM inside the smartphone, running on Android-based EMUI 9.1, should be more than sufficient for all the multitasking and gaming that you might want from this smartphone, while the large 4,000mAh battery (with Type-C charging) should give you more than enough juice to last through the day.
But in achieving its goal of delivering unmatched performance, HONOR hasn’t stopped at just the hardware that keeps the HONOR 9X Pro running. It has also used GPU Turbo 3.0 technology in the smartphone to guarantee butter-smooth performance and high frame rates during your gaming sessions. Of course, the liquid cooling system and nine-layer thermal design should ensure the phone doesn’t heat up and the AI Signal Enhancer promises you won’t lose 4G signals while gaming on the go! So, whether you play PUBG Mobile, Vainglory, Arena of Valor, or NBA 2K18, you will dominate the platform like no other, thanks to the advancements the HONOR 9X Pro brings to the table.
Stellar 48MP triple cameras
Camera performance has been a forte of HONOR smartphones since the start, and the HONOR 9X Pro is no different. The new smartphone comes with an AI triple camera setup on the back, featuring a 48MP sensor, an 8MP super-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth-sensing unit for portrait shots. Starting with the primary 48MP sensor, it has a wide f/1.8 aperture and 1/2-inch sensor size to let more light in, making your photos natural and brighter even in lowlight conditions. This is complemented by the 8MP Super Wide Angle sensor with 120-degree field-of-view to let you capture more of your surroundings as your eyes see them. And there’s the 2MP depth-of-field lens to give you the perfect portrait photo to liven up your Instagram profile! The smartphone also has a 16MP pop-up selfie camera with 3D Portrait Lighting feature to give you the best selfies.
To take the camera performance a notch higher, the HONOR 9X Pro has software wizardry too on its side. First up are AIS Super Night Mode and 4-in-1 Light Fusion technology, which increase the effective pixel size and offer vivid images in the dark. Other software features such as AI Hand-held Detection, AI Light Detection, and AI image processing and image synthesis play critical roles in ensuring you get the best possible images from this smartphone. Shooting videos at up to 1080p is also a treat on this smartphone thanks to the AI Video Stabilization feature, which takes the idea of Electronic Image Stabilization a step further by eliminating shakiness from the videos.
A gorgeous display and design
Thanks to the pop-up selfie camera, the large display of the HONOR 9X Pro is without any ugly notches or obtrusive punch-holes. This, along with Side Mounted Finger Print sensor, makes the smartphone’s 16.73cm (6.59-inch) FHD+ FullView Display ideal for watching movies and playing games since there are no elements obstructing your viewing experience. The large screen is complemented by thin bezels, giving you 92 percent screen-to-body ratio, 1,080×2,340 pixels resolution, and 16.7 million colours at 391ppi to give a crisp and vivid display that looks beautiful from all angles.
HONOR is also taking care of your eyes by reducing the amount of harmful blue light the screen emits – it even has the TÜV Rheinland certification to prove that! And reading under direct sunlight won’t be a problem either because this smartphone comes with custom-built components and a proprietary algorithm to compensate for the details under direct sunlight to provide an amazing viewing experience in all conditions.
Like always, HONOR has also kept in mind the young and vibrant population by providing the Dynamic X design in its Phantom Purple variant, which gives you a stylish X-shaped pattern of different gradients when put under different lighting conditions. People who would prefer a classic look can buy the Midnight Black variant. The curved glass back gives it a premium look that you would want to flaunt everywhere. The immersive display weighs just 206 grams and feels very comfortable to hold with 163.1mm (L) x 77.2mm (W) x 8.8mm (D) dimensions.
