The Honor 9X is now available in Europe starting with Netherland and Russia. The handset arrives with Android 9 Pie and offers all Google support, including platform-critical services and applications for the western market. Because of Donald Trump’s sanctions on Huawei over the US-China trade war, the company was in the middle of crossfire and was targeted by the US president on the grounds that the Chinese government was using Huawei to spy on Americans. So far, such claims have never been substantiated by Trump.
Honor 9X Technical Specifications
It’s the first international variant of Honor 9X is very similar in hardware to the version already on sale in the Chinese market. But the company decided to modify the chipset and set aside the Kirin 810 to adopt the slightly more basic Kirin 710F. Other than that, everything else remains exactly identical to the original model.
We have a 6.59-inch LCD IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio, plus a combo with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The company might also bring a 6GB + 128 GB version in select countries within Europe.
In the X-shaped reflective pattern back cover we have a set of three rear cameras, one f / 1.8 aperture 48MP main sensor, 8MP sensor and a third 2MP for a depth of field data. The front has a 16MP selfie camera in a pop-up module. The phone features a 4,000 mAh battery and relatively 10W charging, not as fast as the most popular 18W in mid-range smartphones, but even better than 5W options.
Honor 9X Price and Availability
The Honor 9X price starts at € 199 and will be available through a flash sale on Oct. 31.
