Introducing the HONOR 9X
Delivering extraordinary photography
The launch of the HONOR 9X attests to the brand’s commitment to bring a flagship smartphone experience to everyone. The HONOR 9X, equipped with a 48MP Triple Camera that features an f/1.8 aperture and ½-inch sensor, allows users to capture their extraordinary moments in clarity. Powered by advanced AI algorithms, its AIS Super Night Mode produces excellent quality photos even in dimly-lit environments, and the inclusion of a 120° Super Wide Angle Camera helps users capture more in every single shot.
Extraordinary FullView Display and stunning Dynamic X Design
The front of the HONOR 9X boasts an immersive 6.59” FullView Display, HONOR’s full screen display technology with no notch or cut-out on the screen, providing a zero distraction viewing experience. Its LCD screen is one of the largest display on an HONOR device with an impressive 91% screen-to-body ratio. This is possible thanks to the pop-up mechanism of the front camera, that retracts back to the device when not needed.
In addition to the extraordinary front display, HONOR also pushes the envelope of smartphone back cover design. Inspired by diamonds, the HONOR 9X’s back panel is made of over 100,000 geometric diamond-cut tiles that reflects and refracts light to create the unique Dynamic X Design. To meet users’ sophisticated aesthetics demands, the HONOR 9X comes in a dazzling Sapphire Blue and the all-time favorite Midnight Black.
