It has been a very long time coming, however the X sequence smartphones from Honor have lastly bought an id. Following on from the cool V-shape sample that made the Honor View 20 so eye-catching, the again of the forthcoming Honor 9X is emblazoned with a large X-shape, and reasonably than being too gaudy, it’s surprisingly refined.
That is our first have a look at the Honor 9X, or a minimum of the again of the telephone, and it’s value taking a second to drink it in. Not like the ocean-deep V-shape on the View 20, the Honor 9X’s X is nearer in fashion to pixel artwork. Made up of tiny, reflective squares, the X catches the sunshine very attractively, however it doesn’t leap off the telephone as you might count on. It took time to seize the distinctive look in our images, because of the Honor 9X being a little bit shy when not in direct gentle. See the picture taken indoors beneath for proof.
There can be two colours out there, a midnight black and sapphire blue, however it’s solely the blue model that has the X form sample on the again. What else does the again of the telephone reveal? A rear fingerprint sensor for a begin, which is uncommon even on the Honor 9X’s midrange stage. The newly introduced Oppo Reno 2 has an in-display fingerprint sensor, for instance. There are three digital camera lenses on the again too, though we don’t know the specification but.
The title confirms that is Honor’s sequel to the Honor 8X. Launched in October 2018, the 8X had a 6.5-inch display screen with a notch on the prime, the Kirin 710 processor, a three,750mAh battery, and a dual-lens digital camera on the again. We will already see the Honor 9X will beat the 8X within the digital camera lens division, however we’ll have to attend for the remainder of the specification particulars.
There’s not lengthy to attend till Honor stops being coy and tells us all concerning the Honor 9X. The telephone will launch in Russia and the Netherlands first on October 24, and we’d count on a wider launch to observe very quickly afterward, together with within the U.Ok. A U.S. launch is clearly not anticipated, and there are query marks over whether or not the Honor 9X will include Google Companies on board, because of Honor being a part of Huawei, and having to take care of the identical restrictions.
Look out for extra on the Honor 9X very quickly.
