As expected, the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro smartphones debuted in China today. The announcement of only two of these models was delayed for almost two hours – a clear sign of how important the new products are for the company.

We should start with the fact that the Honor 9X and 9X Pro are the first models of the brand with the pre-installed firmware EMUI 9.1. This means that the Ark compiler and the EROFS file system are already available out of the box. Corporate interface is installed on top of the OS Android 9.0 Pie.

Both models come equipped with the 7-nano-meter Kirin 810 mobile platform. Despite the fact that it does not belong to the flagship platform, Honor is sure that smartphones are suitable for gaming.

During the announcement there were even live broadcasts from the room in which gamers played on the Honor 9X Pro. This model differs from the basic model 9X with “nine-layer” cooling system – in fact it is a set of metal components inside combined with a heat pipe. During the live component the newly launched 9X Pro was  compared with the competitors such as Oppo and Vivo and the likes – it is clear who came out the winner of this test.

The Kirin 810 is better than Snapdragon 855 and copes well with the acceleration of artificial intelligence applications.

The Honor 9X and 9X Pro comes with a retractable front selfie camera. In it, as in other similar constructions, a protection system is used, such as the inbuilt sensors as soon as it detects the accidental fall of the smartphone, the camera will quickly retract back into the camera module.

Another feature is a fingerprint scanner located on the side panel. Zhao Ming (and it was he who represented the company’s innovations) stated during the event that such fingerprint scanner “will kill scanners embedded in the display” as it works pretty fast and is accurate.

The display on both the devices are identical at 6.59 inches and a resolution of Full HD +. They are marked with the TÜV Rheinland Eye Comfort certificate. Due to relatively bezel-less display, the smartphones are compact and felt in the hand as traditional models with 5.5-inch screens.

The main camera of the basic version Honor 9X is represented by lenses with a resolution of 48 MP and 2 MP while three sensors of 48 MP, 8 MP and 2 MP are used in the Honor 9X Pro.

Of course, the cameras are implemented with various algorithms to improve the quality of the photo, especially in low light conditions. The company stated that the support of photo-sensitivity up to 102,400 ISO units makes it more convenient to shoot owls at night compared to competitors.

Another mode for night shooting is AIS Handheld Super Night View 2.0. In it, the smartphone automatically recognizes the position on a tripod and can set the maximum shutter speed up to 30 seconds. Of course, HDR is supported by smartphones, there is an intellectual stabilization mode when shooting video (optical stabilization is not provided).

As for the front camera, it also come with artificial intelligence algorithms. The resolution of the sensor of this camera is 16 MP. Among other features of the models is the presence of a USB-C port and a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Both smartphones are equipped with 4000 mAh batteries, so users are unlikely to complain about battery life. The devices uses a set of measures to improve communication called AI Smart Communication 2.0. It includes Link Turbo technology, AI Smart Dual Card Internet access, AI Smart Antenna, Dual 4G Dual VoLTE, AI 4G Signal fast recovery, AI Intelligent base station selection. Together, they should provide a more stable reception of both cellular and Wi-Fi signal .
