Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched the Honor 9X smartphone in the global market back in October 2019. The company is now preparing for the global launch of the Honor 9X Pro smartphone. Honor has recently confirmed that it would unveil the Honor 9X Pro smartphone globally during an online launch event set for February 24. During the event, we can expect the company to unveil the Honor V30 and the Honor V30 Pro flagship smartphones as well.
Honor 9X Pro with Kirin 810 Processor will Make its Global Debut on February 24
The company has officially confirmed the February 24 launch date of the Honor 9X Pro smartphone on its official social media handles. George Zhao, President of Honor, has posted the promotional poster for the device on his Facebook handle. The promotional poster confirms that the Honor 9X Pro smartphone will be powered by an octa-core Kirin 810 processor. The device will be one of the first smartphones by the company to come with support for Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), and it won’t run on the more traditional Google Mobile Services (GMS), owing to the recent ban Google has imposed on Huawei.
Speaking of the specifications of the device, the Honor 9X Pro flaunts a 6.59-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels. The display of the Honor 9X Pro features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. We don’t see a notch or a punch-hole camera setup with the Honor 9X Pro as it features a pop-up camera mechanism to ensure that there are as fewer distractions on the display as possible. The handset measures 163.1mm x 77.2mm x 8.8mm, and it weighs in at 206 grams. Notably, it is on a heavier side.
Powering the Honor 9X Pro is a HiSilicon Kirin 810 chipset, which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The storage of the Honor 9X Pro can further be expanded by up to 256GB with the help of an external SD card. The device ships with GPU Turbo 3.0, by the way. For OS, the Honor 9X Pro runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box, with the company’s EMUI 9.1.1 baked on top of it. The handset sports a big 4,000mAh battery, which can be charged over a USB Type-C charging port. In the camera department, the Honor 9X Pro sports a triple rear camera setup – 48MP + 8MP + 2MP. The rear camera of the Honor 9X Pro comes with features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, and Touch to focus. The pop-up selfie camera, by the way, is a 16MP unit. Connectivity options include dual SIM card support, 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As said, we can expect the Honor V30 smartphone and the Honor 9X Pro smartphone to launch on the same date (February 24) in Europe. For now, the company has not shared any intel on the pricing of either of the devices.
