Honor 9X: Design

The Honor 9X is the latest and the first Honor smartphone to launch in the country with a pop-up selfie camera, offering a display with a higher screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone has a glass back panel at the back, which creates a pattern when the lights fall on it at a certain angle.

At the front, the Honor 9X has a 6.59-inch display, which offers FHD+ resolution. As the smartphone has a pop-up selfie camera, the entire front of the device is covered with the display, except for the bottom bezel.

Honor 9X: Hardware Performance

The Indian version of the Honor 9X is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710F SoC, which is an octa-core processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. However, the international Honor 9X comes with the much powerful Kirin 810 SoC, which offers better CPU and GPU performance compared to the Indian edition.

The Honor 9X can handle normal day-to-day tasks without any issue. Similarly, it can also play light games and even titles like PUBG can also be played at lower graphics settings. For tasks like browsing social media platforms and watching videos, the device offers good performance.

Honor 9X: Camera Performance

The Honor 9X has a triple camera setup at the back with a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The main camera can only record 1080p videos, which is a bit of a let down considering the price of the smartphone. For selfies, the device uses a 16MP sensor, again, which can also record 1080p videos.

Thanks to EIS, the phone can record smooth videos and can also take photos with a good amount of detail and dynamic range. The camera does offer features like portrait mode, which will easily blur the background using the 2MP depth sensor.

Honor 9X: Price To Specs Ratio

The Honor 9X retails for Rs. 13,995 in India, which makes it one of the most affordable phones in the country with 128GB internal storage. However, the base variant of the smartphone just offers 4GB RAM, which might not be enough in this modern age.

When it comes to price to specs, ratio, phones like the Realme 6 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro definitely offer more performance at a slightly lower price tag. However, if you are into getting a phone with more internal storage, then the Honor 9X is the device to consider.

Honor 9X: Important Features/Highlights

This is the first Honor smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera to launch in India, and it is also the highlight of the smartphone. Similarly, the device does offer a USB Type-C port with 10W fast charging. If you care about looks more than the performance, then again, the Honor 9X is the device to get.

Additionally, the smartphone supports Google Mobile Services and comes with a built-in Google Play Store, which differentiates it from other newly launched phones from Honor and Huawei.

Honor 9X: Verdict

If you are looking for a smartphone with modern features like a pop-up selfie camera, 128GB storage, and a phone that looks good, then the Honor 9X is the smartphone to consider. However, if you want a phone mainly to play games, then there are a lot of options from Vivo, Realme, and Xiaomi.
