Huawei Launches Mid-range Honor 9X and 9X Pro With Pop-Up Cameras

Honor has finally launched the sequel to the Honor 8X launched in September last year.

The recently launched duo, 9X, and 9X Pro are the first Honor phones that come with a pop-up selfie camera despite the fact that the trend has been in the market for a while now.

Both smartphones are mostly identical, except the 9X Pro comes with an extra camera sensor, more RAM and storage.

Design and Display

Both smartphones have an identical design and feature a unique paint job that reflects an ‘X’ pattern. The camera sensors are vertically aligned on the top left and the fingerprint sensor is housed on the side. The duo will be sold in several colors including black, purple, red and blue.

Display-wise, the duo comes with a 6.59-inch display featuring 1080p resolution and a full-screen notch-less screen.

  • 4 GB RAM and 64 GB built-in storage
  • 6 GB RAM and 64 GB built-in storage
  • 6 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in storage

One the other hand, the Pro model has two variants:

  • 8 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in storage
  • 8 GB RAM and 256 GB built-in storage

Both models have a dedicated memory card slot for memory expansion.

Software-wise, the duo runs on Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.1.
